Oral Presentation Will Focus on InVitro and InVivo Responses to BTM-3566 in Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., November 18, 2021 -- Bantam Pharmaceutical, a drug discovery and development company targeting selective modulation of mitochondrial dynamics in cancer, today announced that data on BTM-3566, in development for the treatment of hematological malignancies including Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma, was selected for an oral presentation at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology(ASH), being held from December 11- 14, 2021, virtually and in-person in Atlanta. Dr. Adrian Schwarzer, MD, PhD, Hannover Medical School, will present non-clinical research on the activity and mechanism of BTM-3566 a novel, oral compound that targets mitochondrial dynamics leading to cellular stress and tumor cell apoptosis.
Details of the abstract and oral presentation session are as follows:

BTM-3566 is an orally-available novel small molecule compound with broad anti-cancer activity in hematologic and solid tumors, initially focused on Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphomas (DLBCL). BTM-3566’s anti-cancer mechanism of action is unique and differentiated from other therapeutics, disrupting mitochondrial function in tumor cells to induce apoptosis (cell death). An IND application for BTM-3566 in B-cell malignancies is being completed for submission in Q1 2022.
Bantam Pharmaceutical is a drug discovery and development company channeling the power of mitochondrial dynamics to address unmet needs in oncology. Using its unique expertise in mitochondrial cellular biology, Bantam is developing novel, first-in-class small molecule oral therapeutics for difficult-to-treat hematological and solid tumors. Bantam is currently pursuing an IND application for Its lead candidate, BTM-3566, in B-cell malignancies. Learn more at https://bantampharma.com/.
