Gene therapies, the promising treatments pursued by companies such as Genprex Inc. (GNPX), are based on turning [the] problem [of cell mutation] on its head. These therapies take genetic code, tiny snippets of biological information that tell the human body how to build itself and insert them into cells. Once in place, successful gene therapies replace damaged or missing code and help the body cure itself.

Creating these treatments is challenging work, and the companies that excel are innovators with the ability to try new approaches. Their work has won acclaim and awards, such as Genprex’s place as a finalist in the technology innovation category of the Fierce Innovation Awards.

About Genprex Inc.

Genprex Inc. is a clinical stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients, based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance.
