Captor Therapeutics to Present at the 4th Annual Targeted Protein Degradation Summit


      Wrocław, Poland, October 26, 2021 - Captor Therapeutics S.A. (WSE:CTX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel protein degradation drugs for cancer and autoimmune diseases, today announces that Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Michal Walczak will present at the 4th Annual Targeted Protein Degradation (TPD) Summit, being held virtually from 26th to 29th October, 2021.

      The presentation, entitled "New Opportunities in Targeting Cancer Resistance Mechanisms with TPD", will discuss a case study of MCL-1 degraders, one of Captor’s high-potential pipeline projects, disclosed last month. MCL-1 degradation is an excellent example of leveraging TPD to overcome cancer resistance. Dr. Michał Walczak will present the results demonstrating desired pharmacodynamic effects, including degradation of MCL-1 and strong induction of apoptosis in vivo in tumour-bearing mice in a leukaemia model (MV4-11).

      Details of the presentation:

      • Title: New Opportunities in Targeting Cancer Resistance Mechanisms with TPD
      • Presenting: Dr. Michal Walczak
