ATLANTA, April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BERG, a biopharmaceutical company, that combines biology and technology to discover novel biology underlying disease, today announced four presentations at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in Atlanta, being held from March 29th - April 3rd. One presentation on BERG's leading product candidate, BPM 31510, describes a novel mechanism of action in preclinical in vitro and in vivo models of Glioblastoma. In addition, other presentations include data on identification and preliminary validation of novel biomarkers in prostate cancer and the flagship Project Survival™ focused on finding early detection biomarkers for pancreatic cancer.
"BERG's Interrogative Biology® platform continues the track-record of success in oncology and is shedding light into novel cancer biology," said Dr. Niven R. Narain, BERG Co-founder, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The research presented this week at AACR further supports BERG's Phase I clinical trial in Glioblastoma expanding potential indications for BPM 31510 in highly aggressive cancers."
Other presentations highlight the strength of BERG's multi-omics and diagnostic capabilities in discovering novel biomarkers enabled by deep molecular characterization correlated to clinical endpoints through the use of artificial intelligence in patients with prostate and pancreatic cancers. "Project Survival demonstrates our multicenter, longitudinal commitment to discovering biomarker profiles for the early detection of pancreatic cancer and eventual personalized approach to treating this dreadful disease," said Dr. A. James Moser, Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and overall study PI.
BERG collaborated with leading institutions like Stanford Medical Center (Glioblastoma research) and Harvard/BIDMC (Project Survival), among others, in its commitment to serve patients afflicted with cancer.
We are grateful to our patient and family partners for their participation in these critical efforts to improve cancer care.
