Omniox poster presentation at the 5th Quadrennial World Federation of Neuro-Oncology Societies Meeting in Zurich, Switzerland, has been chosen for the Best Poster Award

Dr. Le Moan, Director of Translational Research, presented preclinical data demonstrating that our lead candidate, OMX-4.80P, oxygenates hypoxic tumor tissue, enhances anti-tumor immune responses, and increases survival and tumor control both as a single agent and in combination with checkpoint inhibitors. Additionally, the team has identified secretory cytokines that could potentially serve as predictive biomarkers to identify patients who would most benefit from OMX-4.80P treatment.

Omniox receives NIH/NCI Academic-Industrial Partnership Award

Omniox and its collaborators at UC Davis received a $2.8 million translational award to explore hypoxia and OMX PET imaging in rodent and canine brain tumors.

April 3 and 4, 2017

Omniox presented two posters at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Leong, Director of Oncology Research, and Dr. Pan, Scientist in the Oncology Group, presented preclinical data in subcutaneous syngeneic mouse tumor models demonstrating that by oxygenating hypoxic tumor tissue, OMX-4.80P induces a microenvironmental change from an immunosuppressive to an immunopermissive state. When administered alone or combined with checkpoint inhibitors, OMX-4.80P increased anti-tumor activity, even in tumor models that are non-responsive to checkpoint inhibitors.

Dr. Le Moan, Director of Translational Research, presented the therapeutic potential of OMX-4.80P for glioblastoma, demonstrating OMX-4.80P oxygenates and immunosensitizes orthotopic glioblastoma mouse tumors, promotes survival and tumor control as a monotherapy, and increases checkpoint inhibitor efficacy in established tumors.

Omniox presented a poster at the Keystone Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy Oncology Conference in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

Dr. Le Moan, Director of Translational Research, presented preclinical data showing that OMX-4.80P restores anti-tumor immunity and, when combined with checkpoint inhibitors, improves anti-tumor efficacy in orthotopic and subcutaneous mouse tumor models.

Omniox’s UCSF collaborators presented a podium talk at the Keystone Adaptations to Hypoxia in Physiology and Disease Conference in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

UCSF collaborator and neonatal intensivist, Dr. Jason Boehme, MD from Dr. Emin Maltepe’s group, presented data demonstrating the protective effect of an OMX variant on myocardial function in an acute hypoxia lamb model. These data were acquired as part of collaboration with UCSF critical care investigators, Drs. Maltepe, MD and Jeffrey Fineman, MD.

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.
