Breast Cancer Innovator Atossa Genetics (ATOS) Presenting in New York City October 5, 2017
Seattle, WA based Atossa Genetics Inc. (NasdaqCM: ATOS) is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics and delivery methods to treat breast cancer and other breast conditions. Today Atossa announced that Kyle Guse, CFO, will be a featured presenter at The MicroCap Conference on Thursday October 5, 2017 at 12:30 PM Eastern Time. The conference is being held at the Essex House in New York City.
Earlier this week, Atossa announced that it had contracted with a leading European hospital to conduct a Phase 2 study of its proprietary topical Endoxifen for the treatment of women with mammographic breast density, or MBD. Studies by others have shown that a reduction in MBD reduces the risk of developing breast cancer. The Phase 2 study will be conducted at Stockholm South General Hospital in Sweden and will be led by principal investigator Dr. Per Hall, MD, Ph.D., Head of the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Karolinska Institutet.
Atossa plans to apply for approval from the Institutional Review Board and Swedish regulatory authority (Medical Products Agency) within the next 30 days. The placebo-controlled, double-blinded study is expected to enroll up to 480 subjects. The primary endpoint is MBD reduction, which will be measured after six and twelve months of dosing, as well as safety and tolerability.
