Regen BioPharma Inc. (OTCMKTS:RGBP)
Regen BioPharma Inc. (OTCMKTS:RGBP) shares gained 21.6% after the CEO, David Koos, provided an update on how they intend to pursue autoimmune indications by activating Nuclear Receptor NR2F6. According to the biopharmaceutical company, they believe they can unleash cancer-killing potential on patients’ immune systems by inhibiting the NRF6 nuclear receptor.
Regen BioPharma Inc. (OTCMKTS:RGBP) is currently working on a rationale that will be used in the future to activate the NR2F6 nuclear receptor. The company has designed its program to work on small molecules to take advantage of reduced manufacturing costs as well as flexibility when it comes to dosing and routes of administration.
Currently, nine companies are working on programs designed to activate the immune checkpoints. Regen Biopharma is the only one working on utilizing the benefits of small molecules to activate immune checkpoints.
“Our program stands out because we are working with small molecules delivered in pill form. Other biotechnology companies are focused on antibodies that have much more cumbersome delivery methods (hospital stays with IV injections, etc.),” said Mr. Koos.
