Anti-GPC-1 Antibody for Therapeutic & Imaging Applications.
Our patented antibodies target Glypican-1 (GPC-1), a protein overexpressed in prostate, pancreatic, bladder, glioblastoma, esophageal, lung and ovarian cancers. Importantly, there is no antibody reactivity in normal tissues. We are examining multiple mechanisms of action including:
– Bispecific antibodies
– Immune cell engagement and activation
We have now completed a First-in-Human trial in Australia using Miltuximab®, our anti-GPC-1 monoclonal antibody (ANZCTR registry). The trial dosed 12 patients and no drug-related adverse events were observed.
We are currently planning a follow up Phase-1b theranostic study of at least 12 more patients. Candidates will be selected by PET imaging using 89Zr-Miltuximab® and then dosed with the therapeutic version of Miltuximab® (177Lu-Miltuximab®).
Glytuzumab® refers to the humanized version of Miltuximab® and also targets human GPC-1. The Glytuzumab® program is currently undergoing Lead Optimization and Lead Selection. Several humanized leads have been generated with similar binding affinities to that of the parent molecule Miltuximab®. The final Glytuzumab® lead selected will be taken forward from cell line development through to large scale GMP production for future clinical trials.
