The planned clinical study in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with our oral galectin-3 inhibitor GB 1211 is very exciting and we are pleased to have a balance sheet supporting development in these meaningful indications.” Recent Highlights & Developments Published a paper in Gastric Cancer, a joint official peer-reviewed journal of the International gastric Cancer Association and the Japanese Gastric Cancer Association.Announced plans to work with both study investigators and appropriate regulatory authorities to modify and continue the GALACTIC-1 Phase 2b trial following the recommendation from a data safety monitoring board, maintaining our opportunity to demonstrate an effect in the treatment of IPF. We continue to believe that GB0139 is well positioned to address a significant unmet need for a safer and more efficacious treatment.Hosted a well-attended Key Opinion Leader event discussing the current treatment landscape for IPF, the unmet clinical need, and the potential for GB0139.
