OSE Immunotherapeutics to Present at Annual Sachs Immuno-Oncology: BD&L and Investment Forum

NANTES, France, May 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OSE Immunotherapeutics SA (ISIN: FR0012127173) (Mnémo:OSE) announced today that the Company will present at the upcoming “Annual Sachs Immuno-Oncology: BD&L and Investment Forum” being held on June 2, 2017, in Chicago, Illinois, in parallel to the international annual American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting.

Dominique Costantini, Chief Executive Officer of OSE Immunotherapeutics, will provide an overview of the Company, its most recent accomplishments and future growth steps. She will focus on its original immuno-oncology portfolio, including combined neo-epitopes specifically activating T lymphocytes (Tedopi® in phase 3 registration trial in Non-Small Lung Cancer) and new checkpoint inhibitor blocking myeloid suppressive cells associated to the tumor (OSE-172/Effi-DEM, SIRPa antagonist in preclinical stage). Both products have a strong interest in combination with the available T checkpoints as well as in case of escape to this line of immune treatment.

“Our franchise in immuno-oncology is positioned on T-cell specific activation by neo-epitopes and on suppressive cell blockage in the tumor microenvironment by a checkpoint. Tedopi® and OSE-172 (Effi-DEM) are key assets to reinforce our visibility with clinicians, in particular in the United States”, said Dominique Costantini.

Details of the June 2, 2017, presentation:

Hyatt Centric Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel
Presentation track: B
Presentation time: 11:30 AM Central Time

Our ambition is to become a world leader in activation and regulation immunotherapies
OSE Immunotherapeutics is a biotechnology company focused on the development of innovative immunotherapies for immune activation and regulation in the fields of immuno-oncology, auto-immune diseases and transplantation. The company has a balanced portfolio of first-in-class products with a diversified risk profile ranging from clinical phase 3 registration trials to R&D:

In immuno-oncology:

  • Tedopi®, a combination of 10 optimized neo-epitopes to induce specific T activation in immuno-oncology – Currently in registration Phase 3 trial advanced NSCLC HLA A2+ patients EU /US – Orphan Status in the US – Registration expected in 2019 – A Phase 2 with Tedopi® in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor in NSCLC is considered in 2017.
  • OSE-172 (Effi-DEM), new generation checkpoint inhibitor targeting the SIRP-α receptor – In preclinical development for several cancer models.

In auto-immune diseases and transplantation:

  • FR104, CD28-antagonist in immunotherapy – Phase 1 trial completed - For the treatment of autoimmune diseases and for use with transplantation – Licensed to Janssen Biotech Inc. to pursue clinical development.
  • OSE-127 (Effi-7), interleukin receptor-7 antagonist – In preclinical development for inflammatory bowel diseases and other autoimmune diseases. License option agreement with Servier for the development and commercialization.

The portfolio’s blockbuster potential gives OSE Immunotherapeutics the ability to enter global agreements at different stages of development with major pharmaceutical players.

Immunotherapy is a highly promising and growing market. By 2023 Immunotherapy of cancer could represent nearly 60% of treatments against less than 3% at present* and the projected market is estimated at $67 billion in 2018**.

There are more than 80 autoimmune diseases that represent a significant market including major players in the pharmaceutical industry with sales towards $10 billion for the main products. The medical need is largely unmet and requires the provision of new innovative products involved in the regulation of the immune system.
