Abstract Title: The Positive Enantiomer of a Novel Chiral DNA Alkylating Agent Exhibits Nanomolar Potency in Hematologic Cancers
Session Name: 802. Chemical Biology and Experimental Therapeutics: Poster III
Abstract Number: 3991
Poster Session Date & Time: Monday, December 13, 2021, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Presenter: Jianli Zhou, Ph.D., Lantern Pharma

LP-284 is a fully synthetic molecule belonging to the new generation of acylfulvenes, a family of naturally derived anti-cancer drug candidates. While LP-184 shows potency in solid cancer, LP-284 was primarily developed as an analogue which shows selective efficacy against hematologic cancer. LP-284 is currently being evaluated for activity in a wide spectrum of hematological cancers.

Together with the work of collaborators, the roadmap to advancement of LP-284 to the clinic includes identification and validation of target indications, response gene signature development leading to IND-enabling pharmacokinetic profiling, and tolerability and dose range finding studies followed by clinical protocol development.
