Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

MNPR-202 was designed to retain the same potentially non-cardiotoxic backbone as camsirubicin but is modified at other positions which may enable it to work in certain cancers that are resistant to camsirubicin and doxorubicin.
The press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.
