      TransCode Therapeutics (RNAZ): A Promising Cancer Play - Stocks Telegraph

      TransCode Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: RNAZ) is a promising biotech company that has been in and out of the market spotlight in recent weeks and months. Its specific area of focus is a specialization on metastatic disease, putting it at the forefront of cancer research. It boasts some key treatment candidates that show significant promise.

      Positive Pre-Clinical Results

      The primary reason TransCode Therapeutics finds itself in the market spotlight relates to its reporting of positive pre-clinical results for its TTX-RIGA trial candidate addressing Melanoma. As a cancer treatment, this stands as being highly promising, with its binding method through intracellular receptors. Through this approach, targeted activation of immune responses may take place within a cancerous tumor environment. The positive responses in the study reflect a serious broadening of the understanding of cancer treatment by this method. Furthermore, the same binding method has been shown to cause regression in tumors within various animal species.

      TransCode Faces Market Optimism with FDA Approval

      Earlier in December, RNAZ stock undertook an impressive surge in its stock price after an announcement proclaiming the FDA delivered a crucial approval to the company. This gave the company the go-ahead to proceed with the first-in-human phase zero trials of its TTX-MC138 candidate to treat solid cancer tumors. Moreover, the approval came after a thorough safety review process for the trial candidate and grants it a seal of approval to proceed. Although TTX-MC138 is at an extremely early stage and will proceed with the testing of 12 patients, management remains highly optimistic and expects a breakthrough to come with the treatment.


      RNAZ stock is one that has been a biotech favorite in the market, owing to the strides it continues to make in the field of cancer treatment, despite the early stage of its pipeline. Moreover, it continues to achieve milestones and approvals that are likely to take the company to a mature stage in the coming years.
