BERG, biopharmaceutical company, that combines biology and technology to elucidate underlying mechanisms of disease, today announced the presentation of 4 posters at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in Atlanta, being held from March 29th – April 3rd. The poster on BERG’s leading product candidate, BPM 31510, emphasizes the potential mechanism of action in preclinical in vitro and in vivo models of Glioblastoma. Separate posters include data on predictive and prognostic biomarkers in pancreatic and prostate cancer.

“BERGs Interrogative Biology® platform is data agnostic, thus can be applied strategically to different therapeutic areas,” said Niven R. Narain, Ph.D., BERG co-founder, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The research presented this week at AACR further supports BERGs Phase I clinical trial in Glioblastoma. Other posters highlight the strength of BERG’s multi- omics capabilities to discovery biomarkers in specific prostate and pancreatic cancer cases. BERG is grateful for the collaborative opportunities that confirms it’s commitment to patients.”

The research was guided by BERG’s proprietary Interrogative Biology® platform, its hypothesis free, algorithm-based approach guides the discovery, development and clinical evaluation of product candidates to create the next generation of drugs and diagnostics.
