Singh Biotechnology, a pharmaceutical company, announces that its SBT-100, its novel anti-STAT3 (Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 3) B VHH13 single domain antibody (sdAb) SBT-100, has been granted as orphan drug designation by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of pancreatic Cancer. It has been investigated that elevated STAT3 is linked with poor prognosis of solid tumors, including tumor of the pancreas. It can be inhibited either by directly targeting the intracellular protein or indirectly, by targeting the upstream regulators of the STAT3 pathway.
