Moleculin Announces Corporate Rebranding and Launch of New Website

Company reiterates commitment to solving some of the toughest challenges in highly resistant cancers and viruses and developing better treatments that can make a real impact in people’s lives

HOUSTON, April 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Moleculin Biotech, Inc., (Nasdaq: MBRX) (“Moleculin” or the “Company”), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company with a broad portfolio of drug candidates targeting highly resistant tumors and viruses, today announced the launch its new corporate branding and website

“As we drive clinical development across our broad portfolio of drug candidates, expand our growing body of clinical data and build value among all stakeholders, we believed it was an important step to refresh our corporate branding identity and website to align with the true potential and vision we have for Moleculin. We are wholeheartedly committed to potentially solving some of the toughest challenges and importantly, bringing better treatments to patients where there remains unmet medical need. The work completed and data demonstrated to-date bolsters our confidence as we believe we can successfully execute on a number of key clinical and regulatory milestones that will be instrumental in establishing a clear path to approval and commercialization of Annamycin. I am excited for this evolution of Moleculin and to take another step forward towards the future of this exciting company,” commented Walter Klemp, Chairman and CEO of Moleculin.

The Company’s lead product candidate, Annamycin, is a next-generation anthracycline that has been shown in animal models to accumulate in the lungs at up to 30-fold the level of doxorubicin, as well as demonstrating the ability to avoid the multidrug resistance mechanisms that typically limit the efficacy of doxorubicin and other currently prescribed anthracyclines. Importantly, Annamycin has also demonstrated a lack of cardiotoxicity in multiple human clinical trials, including ongoing trials for the treatment of relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and soft tissue sarcoma (STS) lung metastases, and the Company believes that the use of Annamycin may not face the same usage limitations imposed on doxorubicin, one of the most common currently prescribed anthracyclines, and may have the potential to treat a number of additional indications.

Additionally, Moleculin has a robust priority and follow on pipeline comprised of Immune/Transcription Modulators and a portfolio of antimetabolites in development for the treatment of a number of highly resistant tumors and viruses.
