ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Enzychem Lifesciences, a leading global biopharmaceutical company focusing on innovative new drug development for unmet medical needs, today announced that three abstracts have been accepted for poster presentation at the AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics, on October 26-30, 2019, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
This new data demonstrates Enzychem Lifesciences’ commitment to fully understanding of EC-18’s mechanism of action on transendothelial migration & tissue infiltration of neutrophils, as well as potential antitumor effects of EC-18 in the therapeutic indications.
“Tumor infiltrating neutrophils play an important role in tumor progression and metastasis. There is a great need for developing a drug such as EC-18 that may reduce tumor metastasis through novel mechanism of modulating neutrophil trafficking,” said Dr. Jeff Crawford, Chairperson of scientific advisory board of Enzychem Lifesciences.
