Help Us Improve Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer!

First Time in Humans (FTIH) Study of GSK3368715 in Participants With Solid Tumors and Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL)

Arginine methylation mediated by protein arginine methyl-transferases (PRMTs) is an important post-translational modification of proteins involved in a diverse range of cellular processes. Misregulation and overexpression of PRMT1 (a type I PRMT) has been associated with a number of solid and hematopoietic cancers. GSK3368715 leads to inhibition of tumor cell...
