Aptevo Therapeutics (Nasdaq:APVO), a biotechnology company focused on developing novel immuno-oncology and hematology therapeutics, and Alligator Bioscience (Nasdaq Stockholm:ATORX), a biotechnology company developing antibody-based pharmaceuticals for tumor-directed immunotherapy, today announced the presentation of new preclinical data supporting ALG.APV-527 as a promising new immunotherapeutic candidate for the treatment of a variety of 5T4-expressing solid tumors.

As quoted in the press release:

The data were recently presented at the PEGS Summit 2018 and American Association of Immunologists (AAI) annual meeting and will be presented next week at the Annual Meeting of Cancer Immunotherapy (CIMT).

“Taken together, the accumulating preclinical data package for ALG.APV-527 support its potential to provide effective tumor-directed immune activation with reduced systemic side effects.  We are continuing to advance this candidate and look forward to commencing clinical development in 2019,” said Christina Furebring, Senior Vice President Research at Alligator.

“Our collaboration with Alligator Bioscience continues to yield encouraging data supporting the advantages of this novel pathway for targeted immunotherapy of cancer,” said Jane Gross, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer for Aptevo.  “As a first-in-class molecule, ALG.APV-527 showcases the versatility of our ADAPTIR platform in generating bispecific antibodies with unique mechanisms of action and a therapeutic profile that is more consistent with traditional antibodies, including an extended half-life, desirable antibody-like manufacturing characteristics and increased potency and stability.”
