Altamira Therapeutics to Present at 2nd Annual mRNA-Based Therapeutics Summit Europe Conference January 24th to 26th

Hamilton, Bermuda, Jan. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

  • Company COO Dr. Pañeda will discuss SemaPhoreTM platform’s functionality with mRNA, and:
  • Peptide-based platform for extrahepatic delivery
  • The extrahepatic success of, and prospects for, SemaPhore vs other liver-restricted delivery methods

Altamira Therapeutics Ltd. (NASDAQ:CYTO), a company dedicated to developing therapeutics that address important unmet medical needs, today announced that it will be presenting at the 2nd Annual mRNA-Based Therapeutics Summit Europe Conference in Berlin, Germany, which will be held January 24-26, 2023.

As an invited speaker, Covadonga Pañeda, Ph.D., the Company’s recently promoted Chief Operating Officer, will give a presentation at the conference titled, “Examining Extrahepatic Therapeutic mRNA Delivery with Self-Assembling Peptide-Based SemaPhore™ Platform.” Dr. Pañeda will dive deeper into topics such as:

  • Advantages of Altamira’s peptide-based platform
  • The extrahepatic success of, and prospects for, SemaPhore vs other liver-restricted delivery methods

Messenger RNA (mRNA) encodes the information for manufacturing specific proteins and is the topic of a promising field of medical research, as shown by the fast-growing body of clinical and preclinical research into mRNA-based therapeutics.

Altamira is developing the use of mRNA to therapeutically increase the local production of specific proteins outside the liver to treat a variety of diseases. For this purpose, the Company is using its SemaPhore platform to efficiently transport those mRNA payloads into extrahepatic target cells. This state-of-the-art technology platform not only has the unique property of delivering RNA payloads to tissues outside the liver, but also increases the proportion of RNA that reaches the cytoplasm of the target cell. This represents a significant difference from the current industry standard, lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), that deliver therapeutic mRNAs into liver cells and have limited endosomal escape.

Dr. Pañeda states, “mRNA drugs are one of the most exciting developments in human medicine as they offer strong target specificity and enable the treatment of diseases hitherto considered untreatable. Even the most powerful mRNA molecule is useless, however, if it cannot be delivered safely and effectively to the target tissue. With our SemaPhore platform, we have the right technology to take mRNA where it is needed and release it efficiently inside target cells.”
