Leptin may be a primary mediator of exercise-induced improvements in breast cancer recurrence.
The opportunity to draw upon genetic data from large-scale, international consortia allows for triangulation of evidence using distinct methodological approaches that make orthogonal underlying assumptions and suffer from distinct sources of bias. The findings of our study support a potential causal effect of genetically predicted T2DM and/or fasting insulin levels, rather than genetically predicted fasting […]
Jim Shanahan from SynDevRx explains why metabo-oncology treatment modalities could be the answer to a rise in metabolic disorders and cancers.
SynDevRx, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company specializing in metabo-oncology, has announced the formation of its Prostate Cancer Medical Advisory Board (PCMAB), comprised of key opinion leaders and industry experts in clinical oncology research and prostate cancer patient care. The board’s overarching goal is to inform the development of SynDevRx’s lead drug candidate, SDX-7320, to target […]
With a global epidemic of obesity and diabetes and their known relationship to cancer, researchers and oncologists are turning their attention to metabolic hormones as promising new targets for cancer treatment.
Technology Networks recently spoke with Jim Shanahan, co-founder, chief business officer and director of SynDevRx, to explore the impact of metabolic dysfunction on treatment outcomes and learn more about the company’s lead compound SDX-7320.
SynDevRx, Inc., a clinical-stage oncology company, has submitted results of its Phase 1 dose escalation safety study in late-stage cancer patients with progressive, metastatic solid tumors to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The study’s primary endpoint was to establish the maximum tolerated dose and dosing schedule and the recommended Phase 2 dose […]
SynDevRx, Inc., a clinical-stage oncology company, announces the completion of a series of preclinical studies demonstrating that its anti-cancer drug candidate, SDX-7320, inhibits PI3K/Akt inhibitor-induced hyperglycemia and subsequent hyperinsulinemia in normal mice and inhibits tumor growth in multiple models of HR+ breast cancer. The company’s ongoing research places them at the vanguard of metabo-oncology, an emerging field of cancer research that focuses on the role metabolic hormones play in the development and progression of many common cancers, as well as tumor resistance developed in response to certain treatment.
SynDevRx recently completed a Phase 1 study in late-stage cancer patients with a variety of solid tumors. The initial results from the clinical study were selected by AACR for presentation by one of the Principle Investigators – Dr. Monica Mita, MD. Dr. Mita is a Professor of Medicine, Co-Director, Experimental Therapeutics Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical […]
