Company to Highlight ARV-110 PROTAC™ Protein Degrader for the Treatment of Prostate Cancer
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arvinas Inc. (Nasdaq: ARVN), a biotechnology company creating a new class of drugs based on protein degradation, today announced that it will present a poster at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GU), taking place February 14-16 in San Francisco. The presentation will highlight the company’s lead product candidate, ARV-110, an oral androgen receptor (AR)-targeted PROTAC™ (Proteolysis-Targeting Chimera) protein degrader for the treatment of men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. ARV-110 employs Arvinas’ proprietary PROTAC protein degradation technology.
|Presentation details are as follows:|
|Title:||ARV-110: An oral androgen receptor PROTAC degrader for prostate cancer.|
|Session Information:||Poster Session A: Prostate Cancer|
|Session Date/Time:||February 14; 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.; 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.|
All abstracts for the Symposium will be released by ASCO on February 11, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. EST on meetinglibrary.asco.org.
ARV-110 is an orally-bioavailable PROTAC protein degrader designed to selectively target and degrade androgen receptor (AR). ARV-110 is being developed as a potential treatment for men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). ARV-110 has demonstrated promising activity in preclinical models of AR mutation or overexpression, both common mechanisms of resistance to currently available AR-targeted therapies. Arvinas believes the differentiated pharmacology of ARV-110, including its iterative activity, has the potential to translate into improved clinical outcomes for patients.
Arvinas is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to improving the lives of patients suffering from debilitating and life-threatening diseases through the discovery, development, and commercialization of therapies to degrade disease-causing proteins. Arvinas uses its proprietary technology platform to engineer proteolysis targeting chimeras, or PROTAC™ protein degraders, that are designed to harness the body’s own natural protein recycling system to selectively and efficiently degrade and remove disease-causing proteins.
