September 26, 2021, Boston, USA - Boan Biotech, a subsidiary of Luye Pharma Group, will orally present the pre-clinical data of its proprietary CD3+ T-cell engager platform and CEA/CD3 bispecific antibody at World Bispecific Summit 2021.
The annual World Bispecific Summit aiming to promote the development of bispecific antibody therapies will take place for the 12th time this year. It has become a prestigious platform in the industry for academic exchanges. The upcoming event will take place online from September 29 to October 1, 2021 Eastern Standard Time.
Details of the oral presentation by Boan Biotech are as follows:
Title: Optimization of CD3+ T-cell Engager to Improve Safety Profile
Session: T-cell Based Approaches for Oncology Therapeutics
Time: October 1, 2021
CD3+ T-cell engagers are a group of the most promising bispecific antibodies for the treatment of cancers. But they face major challenges including the dose-limiting, life threatening cytokine release syndrome (CRS) toxicity, suboptimal potency, and the on-target off-tumor toxicity. To overcome those challenges, Boan Biotech developed an optimized platform for CD3+ bispecific T-cell engagers with a unique combination of high potency, reduced cytokine release and tumor-targeting selectivity.
The CEA/ CD3 bispecific antibody BA1202 is the first clinical candidate developed on the leading bispecific T-cell Engager platform. The pre-clinical research data of BA1202 showed a high potency in killing cancer cells, significantly reduced cytokine release, and superior efficacy.
In addition to BA1202, multiple bispecific antibody candidates with similar optimized format and the reduced CD3 affinity have been validated both in vitro and in vivo to have a similar advantage against different solid tumor targets. Boan Biotech plans to speed up the effort to take these bispecific T-cell engagers as investigational drugs to clinical trials, to address the huge unmet needs in treating patients with late-stage cancers.
