Cantargia (Cantargia AB; Nasdaq Stockholm: CANTA) has announced it will host an R&D Day focusing on new clinical results and biomarker data for its lead asset, the IL1RAP-binding antibody nadunolimab (CAN04), in pancreatic cancer (PDAC) patients, following presentation of these results at the AACR Annual Meeting 2023 (AACR 2023). The R&D Day will be hosted by Cantargia management and Prof. Eric Van Cutsem, principal investigator in the CANFOUR trial.

Cantargia recently announced new results from the phase I/IIa clinical trial CANFOUR, evaluating nadunolimab in combination with chemotherapy for treatment of PDAC, to be presented at AACR 2023 on April 17, 2023. A key finding is that patients with high tumor levels of IL1RAP, the target of nadunolimab, benefit most from the treatment.

During the R&D Day, Prof. Van Cutsem, Division Head of Digestive Oncology at University of Leuven and University Hospitals Gasthuisberg in Leuven, Belgium, and renowned expert in PDAC, will discuss the current treatment landscape in PDAC and the relevance of the new nadunolimab data. He will be joined by Dr. Dominique Tersago and Dr. David Liberg from Cantargia’s management team.
