Boonton, NJ, April 12, 2022 — Enteris BioPharma, Inc., a biotechnology company developing innovative drug products based on its proprietary delivery technologies, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH), announced today that two submitted abstracts were accepted for poster presentations at the 104th annual meeting of The Endocrine Society (ENDO 2022) taking place June 11-14, 2022, in Atlanta, Georgia. The abstracts highlight research into oral formulations of leuprolide developed utilizing Enteris’ proprietary Peptelligence® platform, a novel formulation technology that enables oral delivery of molecules that are typically injected, including peptides and BCS class III and IV small molecules.
“We are very pleased to report that results from two of our clinical studies involving leuprolide will be the subject of presentations at ENDO 2022,” stated Gary Shangold, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for Enteris BioPharma. “Oral leuprolide represents Enteris’ most clinically advanced internal product candidate and underscores the company’s rapidly advancing clinical development pipeline targeting underserved patient populations where oral delivery can enable competitive and patient compliance advantages. We are working to develop the product to address diseases in which gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists are known to provide benefit and for which an oral format can improve patient compliance.”
