Excerpt from the Press Release:

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., July 02, 2024 (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, dermatologic and neurological conditions, today announced that George Warren, Ph.D., Principal Scientist at Artelo, Myles Osborn, Medicinal Chemist at Artelo, and Matthew Jones, Ph.D. candidate from the Laviolette laboratory at the University of Western Ontario, Canada, each presented results from research studies demonstrating the broad therapeutic potential of Fatty Acid Binding Protein 5 (FABP5) inhibition at the 34th Annual International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS) Symposium. The ICRS Symposium is being held June 30 – July 5, 2024 in Salamanca, Spain.

Targeting FABP5, a promising new approach to treat cancer, was featured in the presentation “Efficacy of ART26.12, a Novel Fatty Acid Binding Protein 5 Inhibitor, in an Orthotopic HCT-116-LUC Human Colon Cancer Model.” Myles Osborn discussed novel preclinical data showing a direct anti-tumoral effect of oral treatment with ART26.12. These data are also supportive of Artelo’s planned development of ART26.12 in chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, where ART26.12 may be able to aid in treatment of the underlying cancer, in addition to the debilitating effects of painful neuropathies.

Beyond development for pain and cancer, ART26.12 has also shown the potential for therapeutic activity in dermatologic conditions. FABP5 was first identified in psoriatic lesions and there is evidence to suggest that upregulation of FABP5 contributes to the pathology of psoriasis. Regarding the data in his presentation, “A Novel Fatty Acid-binding Protein 5 Inhibitor Shows Efficacy in Preclinical Models of Psoriasis,” George Warren, Ph.D. commented, “We are pleased to share novel data showing that our lead FABP5 inhibitor, ART26.12, demonstrated compelling data in preclinical models of psoriasis.
