GenSpera's CEO Shares Insight on Unique Properties and Targeting of Lead Drug G-202, Based on the Thapsigargin Toxin
Date:8/5/2014

POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including biotech, issues an exclusive Q&A interview with Dr. Craig Dionne, PhD, GenSpera's (OTCQB: GNSZ) CEO. Dr. Dionne discusses the company's lead drug G-202 and how they have taken a powerful toxin named thapsigargin to selectively target and kill cancer cells.

He also shares insight into the key points that make them different from competitive drugs available on the market for certain cancers.

Q: Investorideas.com
Craig for readers unfamiliar with your company, can you explain the basis for your lead drug G-202 and how it works?

A: Dr. Craig Dionne, PhD, GenSpera CEO
There are really two important characteristics that distinguish G-202 from other chemotherapeutic agents. First, the active ingredient in G-202 is much more potent than other anti-cancer drugs and kills in a way that does not allow tumor cells to escape being killed. Second, G-202 is designed as a pro-drug that is expected to release the active ingredient only at the tumor itself, thereby maximizing anti-tumor effect and minimizing side effects.

Q: Investorideas.com
And in particular can you explain how the targeting kills the tumor only and give us insight into the safety profile?  

A: Dr. Craig Dionne, PhD, GenSpera CEO
G-202 is designed so that it may be activated by the enzyme PSMA that is found at high levels in the blood vessels of almost all types of solid tumors, on the surface of prostate cancer cells and at very few other places in the body. G-202 circulates safely in the bloodstream until it comes in contact with PSMA which releases the active ingredient, 12ADT, which then falls into the tumor and does not come back into the bloodstream to cause toxicit
