- Trial in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Patients After Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Failure
- Checkpoint Inhibitor Failures Is an Unmet Need in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patient Population
NANTES, France, July 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OSE Immunotherapeutics SA (ISIN:FR0012127173) (Mnémo:OSE) received approval from the Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) to continue Atalante 1, the Company’s international pivotal Phase 3 clinical study of Tedopi® for the treatment of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) following immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment.
“While checkpoint inhibitors are now considered as the standard of care in first- and second-line treatment of advanced NSCLC, there is a strong clinical need for patients in immune escape after such treatment. Our Tedopi® neoepitope product is well positioned to benefit NSCLC patients experiencing treatment failure after checkpoint inhibitors, as there is currently no approved treatment for these patients,” said Alexis Peyroles, CEO of OSE Immunotherapeutics.
The Tedopi® Phase 3 trial, Atalante 1, is evaluating the benefit of Tedopi® in HLA-A2 positive patients with NSCLC at invasive stage IIIB or metastatic stage IV, in 2nd or 3rd line treatment following failure of a checkpoint inhibitor, compared to current standard chemotherapy treatments in this patient population. The primary endpoint of the trial is overall survival. This international trial is being conducted in the U.S., in Europe and in Israel.
ABOUT OSE Immunotherapeutics
OSE Immunotherapeutics is a biotechnology company focused on the development of innovative immunotherapies for immune activation and regulation in the fields of immuno-oncology and autoimmune diseases. Neoepitopes innovation (Tedopi®) is today in Phase 3 in advanced lung cancers (NSCLC) after checkpoint inhibitor failure (anti-PD-1 and anti-PD-L1). A global license and collaboration agreement was signed in April 2018 with Boehringer Ingelheim to develop checkpoint inhibitor OSE-172 (anti-SIRPa monoclonal antibody), for the treatment of advanced solid tumors. An option to license was exercised in July 2016 by Janssen Biotech to continue clinical development of FR104 (an anti CD28 mAb) in auto-immune diseases after positive phase 1 results. A 2-step license option was signed in 2016 with Servier Laboratories to develop OSE-127 (monoclonal antibody targeting the CD127 receptor, the alpha chain of the interleukin-7 receptor) to develop the product up to the completion of a phase 2 clinical trial planned in autoimmune bowel disease and Sjogren’s syndrome. The company has several scientific and technological platforms: neoepitopes, agonist or antagonist monoclonal antibodies, ideally positioned to fight cancer and autoimmune diseases. Its first-in-class clinical portfolio offers a diversified risk profile.
