Bio-Path Holdings to Present Data at 2024 European Hematology Association Congress

Presentation Includes Positive Results from Interim Analysis of Phase 2 Clinical Trial of Prexigebersen in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

/EIN News/ -- HOUSTON, May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bio-Path Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ:BPTH), a biotechnology company leveraging its proprietary DNAbilize® liposomal delivery and antisense technology to develop a portfolio of targeted nucleic acid cancer drugs, today announced an upcoming poster presentation at the 2024 European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress, taking place June 13-16, 2024 in Madrid, Spain.

Jorge Cortes, M.D., Director of the Georgia Cancer Center, will present interim results from the Company’s Phase 2 study of prexigebersen (BP1001) in combination with decitabine and venetoclax for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The data show prexigebersen continues to be well-tolerated and has now demonstrated compelling efficacy results in two reporting cohorts including evaluable newly diagnosed AML patients and evaluable refractory/relapsed AML patients, both of which exceeded outcomes with frontline therapy.

“We look forward to Dr. Cortes’ presentation of these very compelling data, which continue to demonstrate prexigebersen’s potential as a safe and effective treatment for AML,” said Peter Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Bio-Path. “We are particularly enthusiastic with its improvement over frontline therapy and are eager to have these data presented before an audience of the world’s leading hematologists at EHA.”

Details for the poster presentation are as follows:

Date and Time: Friday, June 14, 2024 at 6:00 PM CEST
