"A growing body of scientific evidence provides exciting development opportunities for our WEE1 inhibitor, ATRN-W1051," said Oren Gilad, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Aprea. "ATRN-W1051 is designed to be a potent and selective WEE1 inhibitor with a differentiated structure and potentially preferable pharmacokinetic properties. The presented data demonstrate anti-proliferative activity against a variety of cancer cell lines and tumor growth inhibition in a genetically-defined ovarian cancer xenograft model. We look forward to completing the IND-enabling studies and plan to initiate the clinical program shortly thereafter."

A copy of the poster will be accessible from the "Events Calendar" in the News and Events section of the Aprea website.
