OS Therapies Completes $6 Million Series A Funding Round
OS Therapies, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing innovative therapies to treat and cure Osteosarcoma (OS) and other deadly cancers in kids and adults including ovarian, esophageal, endometrial and lung cancers, today announced the closing of a $6 million Series A round of funding.
The company’s lead product is OST-HER2 targeting Osteosarcoma in kids, which is a listeria cancer vaccine intended to prevent metastasis, increasing overall survival.
“Our primary focus is to get this done: to ensure that this leading technology is employed in a clinical trial, in order to bring new treatments for the deadly disease of Osteosarcoma to market,” said Dr. Robert Petit, CMO/CSO. “The OST-HER2 treatment has been highly successful in multiple trials in canine osteosarcoma, demonstrating 3X improvement in Overall Survival and Disease Progression – we hope to see that it works as well–or even better–in kids.”
The completed private placement will also support the advancement of preclinical and toxicology studies for OS Therapies’ second major platform technology OST-TDC: a next generation Drug Conjugate Technology targeting large solid tumors and potentially other diseases. “With the combination of the OST-HER2 late-stage development, and the significant potential of the OST-TDC technology, we believe OS Therapies has found a balanced approach to significant growth potential,” said Nathan Cali, Managing Director of Noble Capital Markets.
Executive Chair Colin Goddard, PhD. pointed out: “This funding gives OS Therapies the opportunity to execute on their clinical plan, while opening up funding options for the future corporate structure of what could likely be a fully-integrated biopharmaceutical company.”
