Share this article Share this article Kris Frese formerly Co-Lead at the Cancer Biomarker Centre Preclinical Pharmacology Team at Cancer Research UK, joins as Director of Cancer Biology Andrew Hughes, Chief Development Adviser, who has led over 50 oncology R&D programmes at AstraZeneca, joins the Board CAMBRIDGE, England, April 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CellCentric, a clinical stage, private biotechnology company pioneering small molecule inhibition of p300/CBP to treat cancer, today announces the appointments of Kris Frese as Director of Cancer Biology, and Andrew Hughes, who joins the Board as a Non-Executive Director. Both have stellar experience and track records in oncology research and development. CellCentric is developing inobrodib, an orally bioavailable drug that is transitioning into Phase II clinical trials in multiple indications. The first-in-class small molecule p300/CBP inhibitor that has the potential to treat a number of established but difficult to treat oncogenes. Kris Frese is an experienced cancer biologist who specialises in models of cancer and biomarker analysis. Kris most recently served as an Associate Scientist at Cancer Research UK where he co-led the Cancer Biomarker Centre Preclinical Pharmacology Team. Andrew Hughes, who has acted as Chief Development Adviser to the company to date, has more than 25 years' experience of oncology clinical development in biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. He previously led over 50 oncology research and development programmes of novel drug candidates at AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. Andrew is also Honorary Professor of Experimental Cancer Medicine at The University of Manchester and has a strong track record of executing clinical development programmes, resulting in successful product registrations. Kris Frese, Director of Cancer Biology of CellCentric said: "I am excited to join CellCentric at this stage of development. I have been impressed by the comprehensive research and compelling early clinical data in the treatment of different indications of cancer. I look forward to working closely with the team to maximise the potential of inobrodib to deliver improved treatments for people with cancer." Andrew Hughes, Chief Development Adviser and Board Member of CellCentric, commented: "Inobrodib is a highly-differentiated, first-in-class compound with a novel mechanism of action. It can treat different indications of cancer, including both solid tumours and haematological cancers. My experience in executing expanding clinical development programmes, leading to successful product registrations, can help to further progress inobrodib's development." Will West, Chief Executive Officer of CellCentric added: "CellCentric is entering an exciting stage as it begins to transition to Phase II clinical trials of inobrodib. Our vision is to make a real difference to the lives of people with cancer which we can only deliver with an excellent team of highly experienced, motivated people. Both Kris and Andrew have a wealth of knowledge in oncology and clinical development that will be invaluable to accelerate the further development of inobrodib in multiple specific clinical settings." About CellCentric CellCentric is a research driven and patient-centric clinical stage, private biotechnology company pioneering small molecule inhibition of the twin proteins, p300/CBP. It is focused on the rapid development of inobrodib, a first-in-class small molecule p300/CBP inhibitor, which has the potential to benefit patients with many different cancer indications. Inobrodib is in clinical trials to evaluate its effectiveness to treat late-stage prostate cancer, haematological malignancies (blood cancers) and tumours with certain molecular drivers. These represent major clinical unmet needs, delivering a new therapy for patients that otherwise have few alternatives.

Welichem Biotech

Welichem Biotech Inc. ("Welichem", TSX-V: WBI) is engaged in the discovery and development of small molecule therapeutics. Using its Symbiochem technology platform, the Company has developed a robust pipeline of patent-protected compounds that target autoimmune/inflammatory diseases and cancers. Welichem's lead drug candidate, WBI-1001, targets autoimmune/inflammatory skin disorders, such as psoriasis and eczema. A phase I clinical trial of WBI-1001, done in Montreal, in patients with psoriasis has shown a very good safety profile and promising efficacy. As well, the application of WBI-1001 cream against atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema) in a phase IIa clinical trial also has been completed in Canada, with the final report pending in the third quarter of 2008. Welichem plans to all the necessary Phase II Clinical Trials against psoriasis and eczema in the near future. In the company's pipeline, WBI-1001 related compounds are being evaluated also for their therapeutic potential against other autoimmune diseases such as, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Welichem's other lead drug candidate, WBI-2100, selectively targets certain types of hard-to-treat cancerous tumours. This is achieved in part through inhibition of angiogenesis and metastasis. Animal tests have shown that WBI-2100 is effective as a monotherapy and also in increasing the effectiveness of several commonly used chemotherapeutic products. The uniqueness of this small molecule cancer chemotherapeutic is that in pre-clinical studies it increases the number of neutrophils in the peripheral blood. The boosting of neutrophils in animal studies in the presence of the cancer therapeutic, cyclophosphamide, supports its potential therapeutic application for chemotherapy induced neutropenia. With its proven Symbiochem; technology platform, Welichem will advance its pipeline of drug candidates at a rate and time commensurate with resources and target need, and is in a strong position to contribute effectively to productive drug discovery and development partnerships.
