NEWARK, Calif., February 28, 2019 — Rain Therapeutics Inc., a privately-held, clinical stage biotechnology company focused on biomarker-driven, small molecule therapeutics for patients with cancer, today announced presentations of preclinical data from ongoing studies of Rain’s lead candidate, tarloxotinib, at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2019 being held March 29-April 3, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. Poster presentations will feature data detailing in vitro activity of tarloxotinib for a variety of EGFR/ HER2 mutations and in vitro and in vivo efficacy in NRG1 altered cancers, as well as data demonstrating that STEAP4 expression can serve as an additional biomarker to predict sensitivity to tarloxotinib therapy in upcoming clinical trials.
