Curis to Present at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology
LEXINGTON, Mass., Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Curis, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRIS), a biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, today announced three upcoming poster presentations at the 60th annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology. Curis's poster presentations will be available for viewing on Monday, December 3 (Session III) from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. PT with presentations from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. PT in Hall GH at the San Diego Convention Center.
Curis will present three posters at the ASH conference providing key information supporting development of fimepinostat in patients with DLBCL, including patients with MYC-alterations, and CA-4948, Curis's IRAK4 inhibitor, for patients with lymphomas. A pooled analysis of R/R DLBCL patients treated with fimepinostat demonstrates adequate safety and anti-tumor activity supporting the biologic rationale for continued development of fimepinostat in this patient population. Additionally, Curis will present preclinical data and biological rationale that support CA-4948 development in patients with tumors sensitive to the IRAK4 signaling pathway as well as data supporting the potential for IRAK4-based combination regimens to overcome drug tolerance in patients with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
Details of these presentations are as follows:
