About Hillstream BioPharma, Inc.

Hillstream BioPharma, Inc. (“Hillstream”, the “Company”) is a clinical stage platform company developing Quatramer™. The Company is advancing lead candidates, including novel small molecules and proprietary DNA expression vectors which encode inflammatory cytokines directly into the tumor’s genome.  The lead drug candidate, HSB-1216, is in IND-enabling studies and can be developed in the clinic in 2021 for small cell lung cancer, or SCLC, and triple-negative breast cancer. The Company has achieved orphan drug designation in SCLC for HSB-1216’s payload and plans to develop other Quatramer™ based compounds with therapeutic cargoes from the product pipeline, which include DNA-based contents which hijack the tumor’s genetic code and kill the tumor from within by generating an array of cancer killing cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor alpha or TNF-a and interleukin-2 or IL-2.  The platforms’ tunability stems from the fact that the system can be modified and adjusted to deliver single or multiple ratios of payloads in order to optimize synergistic mechanisms of action in lower doses in order to eradicate rare cancers and devastating tumors with minimal or no treatment options.
