Altamira Therapeutics to Present at 3rd Annual mRNA-Based Therapeutics Summit

Altamira’s two flagship programs, AM-401 and AM-411, designed for KRAS-driven cancer and rheumatoid arthritis, serve to demonstrate the technology’s capability to enhance therapeutic efficacy

HAMILTON, BERMUDA Jan. 8, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altamira Therapeutics Ltd. ("Altamira" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: CYTO), a company providing nanoparticle-based technology for efficient RNA delivery to extrahepatic targets, announced today that it will be presenting at the 3rd Annual mRNA-Based Therapeutics Summit, being held January 23-25 at the JW Marriott Hotel, Berlin.

Covadonga Pañeda, Ph.D., the Company's Chief Operating Officer, will give a presentation at the conference titled, "Delivery of therapeutic RNA in inflammation and cancer using peptide-based nanoparticles”. In addition, she will participate in the panel discussion on “Tissue specific targeting of mRNA to increase therapeutic efficacy.”

"There is a strong and growing interest in the use of mRNA for highly targeted treatment of a broad range of human diseases, based on the unique ability of mRNA to promote expression of specific proteins,” Dr. Pañeda commented. “However, even the most powerful mRNA therapeutic is useless if it is not delivered safely and effectively into target cells, which has remained one of the key challenges for non-hepatic targets to date. Thanks to our SemaPhore platform we are able to deliver therapeutic mRNA, in an efficient and safe manner, to tissues harboring a tumor or suffering from acute or chronic inflammation, restricting the therapeutic effect of the drug to the site where it is needed."

SemaPhore™, Altamira’s peptide-based delivery platform for mRNA, has been successfully tested so far in vivo in models of osteoarthritis (WNT16, DNMT3B), atherosclerosis (p27Kip1), aortic aneurysm (SOD2), and tumor microenvironment (ZBTB46).

About Altamira Therapeutics

Altamira Therapeutics (Nasdaq: CYTO) is developing and supplying peptide-based nanoparticle technologies for efficient RNA delivery to extrahepatic tissues (OligoPhore™ / SemaPhore™ platforms). The Company currently has two flagship siRNA programs using its proprietary delivery technology: AM-401 for KRAS driven cancer and AM-411 for rheumatoid arthritis, both in preclinical development beyond in vivo proof of concept. The versatile delivery platform is also suited for mRNA and other RNA modalities and made available to pharma or biotech companies through out-licensing. In addition, Altamira holds a 49% stake (with additional economic rights) in its commercial-stage legacy asset Bentrio®, an OTC nasal spray for allergic rhinitis. Further, the Company is in the process of partnering / divesting its inner ear legacy assets (AM-125 nasal spray for vertigo; post Phase 2; Keyzilen® and Sonsuvi® for tinnitus and hearing loss; Phase 3). Founded in 2003, Altamira is headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda, with its main operations in Basel, Switzerland. For more information, visit:
