Hillstream BioPharma Presentations at 2020 AACR Virtual Annual Meeting II


CHESTER, N.J., May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hillstream BioPharma, Inc. (“Hillstream”) today announced that two abstracts highlighting the progress of HSB-1216 (salinomycin QUATRAMER™) preclinical programs will be presented as an e-poster at the 2020 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Virtual Annual Meeting II taking place from June 22-24, 2020.

The accepted abstracts, released on May 15, 2020, summarize nonclinical research in which HSB-1216 is being studied as a single agent in small cell lung cancer and triple negative breast cancer.  “We are actively evaluating the potential utility of HSB-1216 (Salinomycin QUATRAMER) in several solid tumor types,” stated Randy Milby, President and CEO of Hillstream BioPharma.  “We know that healthcare professionals and patients are hopeful about the role HSB-1216 therapy may play in treating these cancers, and we are pleased to share our latest updates at this year’s AACR meeting.”

The e-poster website will be launched June 22, 2020, the first day of the AACR Virtual Annual Meeting II.  All e-posters will be made available for browsing on this date. The two Hillstream BioPharma sponsored presentations include:

About HSB-1216 (Salinomycin QUATRAMER™)
HSB-1216 is a novel formulation of salinomycin, a potent compound, which uses the Quatramer delivery platform and targets both chemotherapy resistant tumors due to its effects on epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT).  Recently, research suggests an even more powerful mechanism called ferroptosis is key to how the drug stops tumors – this process sequesters iron in lysosomes and allows HSB-1216 to cause lysosomal membrane permeabilization in hard to treat cancer cells – causing them to rupture and stop replicating. 

About Hillstream BioPharma Inc.
Hillstream BioPharma Inc. (“Hillstream”) is a development-stage company focused on rare cancers.  By harnessing a weakness in tumors to preferentially concentrate advancing novel immune-oncology therapeutics for critical unmet needs.  By harnessing a weakness in tumors to preferentially concentrate Hillstream’s QUATRAMER technology, we are developing targeted cancer therapies.  The Company is advancing lead candidates, including novel small molecules and proprietary DNA expression vectors which encode inflammatory cytokines directly into tumor’s genome.  Hillstream is working to improve the lives of patients and rapidly move into the clinic to treat small cell lung cancer, soft tissue sarcoma and other unmet need rare cancers.  For more information, please visit www.hillstreambio.com.
