Early and Effective Nutritional Therapy in GI Cancer Patients: An Opportunity to Improve Patient Outcomes & Quality of Life
Baxter International Inc. (NYSE: BAX), a global leader in clinical nutrition, is also present at the ESMO congress to be held in Barcelona from 27 September to 1 October, organizing the symposium “Early and effective nutritional therapy in GI cancer patients: an opportunity to improve outcome.”
Approximately 50% of oncology patients in Europe are affected by malnutrition. While the rate of malnutrition is even higher for patients with gastrointestinal (GI) cancers real-world evidence suggests that only 23% of GI cancer patients have malnutrition diagnosed, due to the lack of appropriate nutritional screening.1 Approximately one quarter of all cancer patients die due to consequences of malnutrition, but cancer-related malnutrition goes undiagnosed in many patients.2
Seven out of ten patients experience feeding problems during cancer treatment, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, leaving them at serious risk of malnutrition and its associated problems. 3
Early initiation of clinical nutrition therapy after cancer diagnosis allows to achieve the best possible patient outcomes, improvement of cancer care and optimisation of healthcare resources use.4,5 Parenteral nutrition is a life-sustaining therapy when oral and enteral nutrition are not possible.

Knopp Biosciences Presents Data Further Characterizing Its Lead Kv7.2 Activator Drug Candidate for the Treatment of KCNQ2 Epileptic Encephalopathy at the American Epilepsy Society’s 2019 Annual Meeting9.12.2019 20:00:00 EET | Press release
Knopp Biosciences LLC, a privately held drug discovery and development company focused on delivering breakthrough treatments for immunological and neurological diseases with high unmet need, today presented data characterizing KB-3061, the lead molecule in the Company’s Kv7 ion channel platform, at the American Epilepsy Society’s (AES) 2019 Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. Knopp is advancing the development of KB-3061 as a potential precision medicine treatment for the rare, neonatal disease KCNQ2 epileptic encephalopathy (KCNQ2-EE), a genetically defined disease associated with seizures beginning in the first days of life and profound neurodevelopmental delay. The disease is caused by dominant-negative mutations in the KCNQ2 gene, which produces a potassium channel, Kv7.2, critical to early brain development. Data presented at AES by Knopp scientists and its academic collaborators support the continued development of KB-3061 as a potential treatment for children with KCNQ2-EE. K
