Penny Stocks To Watch: GT Biopharma Inc.
GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP Stock Report) is one of the more active cancer stocks to watch this quarter. Over the last few weeks, the company has made several key advancements in its treatment pipeline. This includes both with one of its lead treatments and with its base treatment technology, TriKE. It’s a combination protein that bridges an immune cell and a tumor cell to drive tumor cell killing power exponentially. It has led to new first-in-human phase studies to treat leukemia. It’s further been evaluated in ovarian, breast, prostate, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and lung cancer models. The company has set a goal of designing TriKE as a true off the shelf option for numerous different cancer indications.
Toward the end of October, GT announced the publication of “NK-Cell-Mediated Targeting of Various Solid Tumors Using a B7-H3 Tri-Specific Killer Engager In Vitro and In Vivo”. This was in the journal Cancers. The research effort was conducted by researchers at the University of Minnesota and at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. According to GT, this B7H3 protein is highly expressed on the surface of several types of cancer.
Based on the findings, GT saw that a B7H3-targeted TriKE could enhance natural killer cell immunotherapy in solid tumor settings. This further justified the advancement of a B7H3 TriKE to clinical development.
Considering the attention that cancer and immunotherapy stocks are receiving right now, GTBP has remained one to watch during the 4th quarter of 2020.
