Pascal Biosciences, a biotechnology company targeting innovative therapies for serious diseases, including COVID-19, has been awarded a grant from the National Cancer Institute of the US National Institutes of Health.

This two-year grant of US$343,750 will fund development of Pascal's antibody drug for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or “ALL”.

More than 6,000 patients are diagnosed with this type of leukemia in North America each year, with about half being children, making this the most common childhood leukemia.

Pascal's drug will be eligible for orphan drug designation, which can enable financial incentives and a seven year marketing exclusivity.

Although the number of patients with ALL is relatively small, the market potential for Pascal's drug could be significant.

Other cancer products for orphan diseases have proven to be financially successful, selling over $1 billion each year.

The company has filed for patent protection for its ALL treatment.

Here’s Dr. Patrick Gray, Pascal’s CEO, with some comments and insights about today’s news. Welcome Patrick.
