An experimental gene therapy developed by Texas biotech Genprex will be paired with AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso and Merck & Co’s Keytruda – both leading their respective drug classes in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Genprex announced that quaratusugene ozeplasmid (Reqorsa) will be studied in two new trials, in which non-small cell lung cancer patients with specific molecular markers will receive its investigational drug combined with osimertinib (AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso) or pembrolizumab (Merck’s Keytruda).
New branding will support upcoming combination clinical trials, including the Company’s trial combining REQORSA™ immunogene therapy drug with AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso®, which received FDA Fast Track Designation earlier in 2020
Approval of new name marks important branding milestone and aligns with the program’s overall progress
