Project Term: June 13, 2022 - TBD
In June 2022, LLS made an equity investment in ImCheck Therapeutics to "Support Clinical Development of the ICT01 Program for Blood Cancer Indications."
ImCheck Therapeutics is designing and developing a new generation of immunotherapeutic antibodies targeting butyrophilins, a novel super-family of immunomodulators.
ICT01 is a humanized, anti-BTN3A (also known as CD277) monoclonal antibody that selectively activates γ9δ2 T cells, which are part of the innate immune system that is responsible for immunosurveillance of malignancy and infections. A clinical trial (EVICTION) is currently enrolling a cohort expansion of ICT01 in combination with azacitidine and venetoclax in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (NCT04243499).
