"We look forward to sharing the latest research supporting STP705's potential as a future treatment option for patients living with non-melanoma skin cancer," said Patrick Lu, Ph.D., President and CEO of Sirnaomics.

Non-melanoma Skin Cancer (NMSC) represents the most common form of cancer, such as Basal CellCarcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma. According to a 2019 report by Frost & Sullivan, approximately 450,000 cases of NMSC are diagnosed in the US annually. Current RNAi drugs have the potential to provide non-surgical treatment for NMSC with high efficacy and cure rates.

Sirnaomics is currently conducting a Phase IIa clinical trial with STP705 for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer.  This dose ascending trial is designed to include five cohorts receiving local delivery of STP705. Enrollment has been completed in the first three cohorts and continues in the last two cohorts.
