As quoted in the press release:

“The Company is encouraged by ongoing clinical progress on its two most advanced immuno-oncology programs, anti-TIGIT and GITRL-Fc, and preclinical data on these programs were recently highlighted in multiple poster presentations at the 2018 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting. We also continue to dose patients in two Phase 1b studies of navicixizumab, our anti-DLL4/VEGF bispecific antibody. We look forward to delivering on numerous near-term catalysts, including the initiation of the Phase 1b portion of the anti-TIGIT study in combination with anti-PD1 in the second quarter of this year, the publication of the navicixizumab Phase 1a manuscript and the presentation of the navicixizumab Phase 1b ovarian cancer data in the second half of 2018, and the planned presentation of the anti-TIGIT Phase 1a data in the fourth quarter of 2018,” stated John Lewicki, Ph.D., President and CEO of OncoMed.
