Omniox publishes its first book chapter on oxygenating ischemic brain tissue after stroke to preserve the neurovascular unit
Dr. Le Moan, Director of Translational Research, was invited to publish a book chapter in “Neuroprotective Therapy for Stroke and Ischemic Disease” (edited by Paul A. Lapchak and John H. Zhang, experts in the field of stroke) discussing the promising use of adjunctive therapies to enhance the benefits of recanalization after stroke. In particular, the chapter focuses on the concept of oxygen therapy and oxygen carriers, highlighting advantages of the H-NOX technology, as a valid approach to protect hypoxic brain tissue until clot removal.

Omniox presents preclinical data on immuno-sensitizing effects of OMX-4.80P in orthotopic glioblastoma tumors at the CNS Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery Conference and 21st Annual Society for Neuro-Oncology Meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona
Dr. Krtolica, VP of Research and Dr. Le Moan, Director of Translational Research, presented a podium talk and a poster showing OMX-4.80P acts as a broad modulator of the hypoxic tumor microenvironment and enhances the efficacy of PD1-targeted therapy in orthotopic glioblastoma. Given its multi-pronged immuno-sensitizing activity and good tolerability, OMX-4.80P holds the potential to synergize with radiotherapy and multiple immunotherapeutic agents to enhance tumor control and improve patient outcomes in glioblastoma.
