Monopar Stock Gains On Launch Of Early Stage Soft Tissue Cancer Trial With Camsirubicin

  • The FDA has signed off Monopar Therapeutics Inc's MNPR IND to commence an open-label Phase 1b dose-escalation trial to evaluate camsirubicin plus pegfilgrastim in patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (ASTS).
  • Enrollment will start in Q4 of 2021.
  • "Camsirubicin is a novel analog of doxorubicin, and doxorubicin is known to work through a dose-dependent mechanism, where higher quantities yield more anti-cancer effect," said Andrew Mazar, Monopar's Chief Scientific Officer. 
  • Price Action: MNPR shares are up 6.77% at $5.68 during the premarket session on the last check Tuesday.
