On World Lung Cancer Day, Ocean Biomedical (NASDAQ: OCEA) shared details of its multipronged lung cancer program built on novel immunotherapy discoveries by Scientific Co-founder Dr. Jack A. Elias. According to the announcement, Dr. Elias and his team have revealed that Chitinase 3-like-1 (“CHi3L1”) is a master regulator that inhibits antitumor immune responses. Ocean Biomedical’s lung cancer program is advancing several approaches to reversing immune system suppression caused by CHi3L1 alone and in combination with other immunotherapy pathways. The programs suppress primary and metastatic tumor growth in numerous animal models and hold potential use in multiple forms of visceral cancers. In recent studies, Ocean Biomedical’s programs have demonstrated up to 95% reduction in primary and metastatic tumor burden in lung cancer mouse models. “We are making discoveries that we believe will drive cancer research, and eventually treatment and patient outcomes, forward,” said Dr. Elias. “This pathway discovery is an unprecedented leap, because if you control CHi3L1, you don’t just control one anti-cancer pathway, you simultaneously control many anti-cancer pathways.”
