Release date- 02102017 - EAGAN, MN - Biothera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. today announced that it will present new research at three upcoming healthcare conferences for Imprime PGG, Biothera's novel phase 2 cancer immunotherapy.

The high profile late-breaking session of the AACR-NCI- EORTC will feature initial translational research from Biothera's ongoing phase 2 clinical study combining Imprime PGG and Merck's anti-PD-1 antibody, Keytruda, for the treatment of biomarker-positive patients with triple negative breast cancer or metastatic melanoma.
