(Nasdaq: SLRX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing potential new medicines for patients with pediatric cancers, solid tumors, and other cancers, announced today that Daniela Y. Santiesteban, Ph.D., Director of Research and Business Development at Salarius Pharmaceuticals, has been invited to participate in a panel discussion during Noble Capital Markets’ 17th Annual Small & Microcap Investor Conference (NobleCon17).

During the event, Dr. Santiesteban and other panel members will discuss the current status of targeted cancer therapies, as well as the future outlook for research and drug development in the field.

Salarius is developing seclidemstat, a reversible LSD1 inhibitor that is now being studied in two clinical trials — one trial in relapsed/refractory Ewing sarcoma, a rare and deadly pediatric bone and soft tissue cancer, and a second trial in advanced solid tumors (AST). Salarius expects to establish maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in its Ewing sarcoma trial and advance into the dose-expansion phase of the Ewing sarcoma trial in early 2021. Salarius also expects to expand the same trial to include additional select sarcomas that share a similar biology to Ewing sarcoma, also known as Ewing-related sarcomas.
