Targeting Epigenetics in Rare Proliferative Bone Marrow Cancers
May 15, 2020
Imago BioSciences is developing therapeutics that change the behavior of malignant blood cells by targeting an enzyme that regulates gene transcription. LSD1 is an epigenetic enzyme that controls how genes are turned on and off in specific cells and plays a key role in the rare bone marrow cancer myelofibrosis. We spoke to Hugh Reinhoff, Jr., CEO of Imago, about myelofibrosis, the company’s experimental therapy bomedemstat to treat the condition, and the case for targeting epigenetic processes to address proliferative diseases of the bone marrow.
