Several revolutionary gene therapies appear to be on the verge of delivering remarkable remedies for diseases that have previously been viewed as untreatable.
- Gene therapy is the next great leap forward in medicine, with several noteworthy programs underway looking to cure the incurable
- FDA expects 200 new gene and cell therapy INDs in next two years
- Genprex — and its initial product candidate Oncoprex — is pioneering a new approach to treating cancer.
Built on decades of scientific research and innovation, gene therapy is the next frontier of medicine, determined to provide remedies for previously untreatable diseases and unmet medical needs.

About Genprex Inc.
Genprex Inc. is a clinical stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients, based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.Genprex.com.
