SEATTLE, Feb. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nohla Therapeutics Inc. (Nohla), a leading innovator in the development of universal donor cellular therapies for the treatment of patients with blood cancers, announced today that it will present at the Cowen and Company 37th Annual Health Care Conference in Boston, MA. Dr. Colleen Delaney, Nohla’s Scientific Founder and Chief Medical Officer, is scheduled to present on Tuesday, March 7th at 2:00pm ET. 

Dr. Delaney’s presentation will provide an overview of the Company’s ex vivo expansion platform, which enables expansion and directed differentiation of cord blood stem/progenitor cells resulting in “off-the-shelf” universal donor cellular therapies (which can be used on demand without the need for HLA matching). In addition, Dr. Delaney will profile Nohla’s two lead programs evaluating the ability of these products to reduce infection and other complications of neutropenia in multi-center, randomized clinical trials: a Phase IIb study in the setting of cord blood transplant and a global Phase II study in the setting of high dose chemotherapy for acute myelogenous leukemia (AML).
