FORT LEE, N.J., Oct. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvectis Pharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: NVCT) (“Nuvectis” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative precision medicines for the treatment of serious conditions of unmet medical need in oncology, today announced the publication of abstracts for two posters that will be presented at the upcoming 34th EORTC-NCI-AACR Symposium on molecular targets and cancer therapeutics (“2022 ENA”), taking place from October 26th to October 28th, 2022 in Barcelona, Spain.

Ron Bentsur, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nuvectis said: “The posters that will be presented at the 2022 ENA describe the preclinical validation of biomarkers supporting the clinical development of NXP800, and identify additional target tumors and potential clinical development opportunities for NXP900, further differentiating it from non-selective SRC/YES1 inhibitors. We look forward to sharing these data with the oncology community at the ENA.”

Posters Information



Discovery and validation of biomarkers to support clinical development of NXP800: A first-in-class orally active, small-molecule HSF1 pathway inhibitor








New drugs

In this study the investigators searched for biomarkers that correlated with sensitivity in human tumor xenografts and human cancer cell line panels and used isogenic models to validate the key predictive biomarker for acitivty. To identify biomarkers that correlated with sensitivity to NXP800 in human tumor xenografts and human cancer cell line panels, a combination of gene expression and protein profiling was used. Genetic loss of ARID1a, a component of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodelling complex, was identified as predictive of greater therapeutic responsiveness.



Screening of NXP900 and dasatinib across 121 cancer cell lines identifies differences in their antiproliferative activity profiles








Drug Screening

A statistical comparison of the IC50/ GI50 showed that multiple cell lines were significantly more sensitive to NXP900 than to dasatinib, a non-selective multi-kinase SRC inhibitor (from 10- to 250-fold difference in activity). These data indicate that specific patient subgroups may benefit from the distinct pharmacological properties of NXP900, but not from classic type I SRC inhibitors.

Further, certain forward-looking statements are based on assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. These and other risks and uncertainties are subject to market and other conditions and described more fully in the section titled "Risk Factors" in the 2021 Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
