Epigenetics is the study of the regulatory system that controls how genes are turned on or off. In certain cancers, the proteins that regulate gene expression become dysregulated and incorrectly activate or deactivate genes, which can lead to cancer. Salarius Pharmaceuticals is targeting the epigenetic causes of cancer, including rare pediatric cancers. We spoke to David Arthur, CEO of Salarius about epigenetics, the rare cancer Ewing sarcoma, and company’s lead drug candidate to treat the condition.
