Joshua R. Lamstein, Chairman of Scopus, commented,

Duet Therapeutics has officially launched, and they are really thrilled about it. Scopus and Olimmune have combined their immuno-oncology assets to develop a comprehensive, industry-leading portfolio of bi-functional cancer-targeting oligonucleotides. All of their IP-protected STAT3 inhibitor solutions are very complimentary. Their oligonucleotide technologies, they think, are distinct, better, and superior to other STAT3 inhibitors now in development.

Alan Horsager, President and CEO of Duet and President, Immuno-Oncology for Scopus, commented,

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to manage the integration and clinical development of Duet’s immuno-oncology platform. It’s an honor to be a part of the integration and development of Duet’s medication prospects. They think their oligonucleotide platform has great potential to solve one of society’s most critical unmet medical needs – novel therapies, and perhaps cures, for many different forms of cancer, based on a huge body of scientific research. Making new standards of care, improving patient care, and saving lives is the most important professional objective he can think of.
