Artelo Biosciences to Present New Mechanism of Action Data on ART26.12 at the Gordon Research Conference on July 20, 2023

New data demonstrates that ART26.12 works by activating multiple receptors implicated in pain signaling and is able to broadly modify lipids in chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., July 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Artelo Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARTL), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on modulating lipid-signaling pathways to develop treatments for people living with cancer, pain, and neurological conditions, today announced that Saoirse O’Sullivan, PhD, Vice President of Translational Sciences at Artelo Biosciences, will be presenting “The Therapeutic Potential of Fatty Acid Binding Protein (FABP) Inhibitors” at the Gordon Research Conference on “Charting the Course to Novel Therapeutics From a Fundamental Understanding of Cannabinoid Neurobiology” being held July 16-21, 2023 at the Rey Don Jaime Grand Hotel in Spain.

“I am looking forward to sharing our data on the potential applications of inhibiting fatty acid binding proteins from our extensive library of compounds,” said Professor O’Sullivan. “We are particularly excited to share new information on the effects of our FABP inhibitor ART26.12 on not only cannabinoid receptors, but other receptors implicated in pain signaling, as well as lipidomic and transcriptome data that help us understand how ART26.12 elicits its effects in peripheral neuropathies.”

Professor O’Sullivan’s presentation on Thursday, July 20, 2023 includes data on ART26.12, Artelo’s lead compound targeting a variety of painful neuropathies, as well as the potential of FABP inhibitors beyond peripheral neuropathies. ART26.12 was selected from Artelo’s platform of inhibitors to FABPs as its first candidate drug. The Company recently announced it expects pre-IND meeting feedback on its IND planning and development strategy from the Food and Drug Administration during the third quarter of this year with the goal of initiating clinical development in early 2024.

About ART26.12
Fatty Acid Binding Proteins (FABPs) are a family of intracellular proteins that chaperone lipids including endocannabinoids and fatty acids. Various inhibitors of FABPs may be particularly useful for the treatment of specific cancers, neuropathic and nociceptive pain, and anxiety disorders. ART26.12, Artelo’s lead FABP inhibitor compound, is a selective inhibitor of FABP5. While developing ART26.12 in painful neuropathies, including for CIPN, the Company has additional compounds from an extensive library of potent and selective inhibitors of FABPs that have been identified and selected for advancement towards regulatory-enabling studies in cancer and other areas of high-unmet need where inhibition of FABPs show significant promise. Artelo’s extensive library of FABP inhibitors is protected with three patents issued in the United States and 14 pending patent applications.
