Preclinical data showcases advancement of its immuno-oncology portfolio across the Company’s three strategic pillars: immune checkpoint inhibitors, tumor antigen targeting and tumor micro-environment

Innate Pharma SA (the “Company” - Euronext Paris: FR0010331421 – IPH; Nasdaq: IPHA) will provide an update on its preclinical pipeline at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 2019 Congress in National Harbor, Maryland, November 6-10, 2019.  Highlights will include:

  • In vivo data on anti-CD39 IPH5201 supporting the rationale for assessing combination with PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors
  • Preclinical results of anti-CD73 IPH5301 targeting the adenosine immunosuppressive pathway
  • New generation trifunctional NK cell engagers (NKCEs), supporting its clinical development in immunotherapy

Innate will also present in vitro data on IPH5401, demonstrating that the molecule has the potential to block activation and migration of human neutrophils, a major mechanism to allow for the reactivation of effector cells.  The Company believes this data supports its ongoing multi-center, open label, dose-escalation and dose expansion Phase I clinical trial (STELLAR-001), evaluating the safety and efficacy of IPH5401 in combination with durvalumab (anti-PD-L1) in patients with advanced solid tumors.

Eric Vivier, Chief Scientific Officer of Innate Pharma, will also give a presentation on harnessing innate imnunity in cancer, as part of the faculty session dedicated to NK cells.

We are pleased to present data at SITC 2019 on several of our preclinical and clinical assets, notably three antibodies targeting the tumor microenvironment, as well as on our new NKCEs technology,” commented Eric Vivier, Chief Scientific Officer of Innate Pharma. “These data support the science and innovative technologies our scientists continue to develop, helping to further advance our multi-target strategy in immuno-oncology.”
