NOXXON Pharma demonstrates synergies between NOX-A12 and therapies working through T cells or NK cells

Preclinical data presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) conference shows synergy of NOXXON's lead compound NOX-A12 with both T cell and NK cell based therapies

(PresseBox) (Berlin, Germany, ) NOXXON Pharma N.V. (Alternext Paris: ALNOX) a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on cancer treatment, announced that it presented data yesterday at the ESMO conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, studying the role of CXCL12 inhibition by NOX-A12 (olaptesed pegol) in tumor stroma spheroids, a preclinical model that mimics the complexity of the tumor microenvironment. These studies showed that NOX-A12 synergizes with therapies working through either T cells or NK cells. Further studies of NOX-A12 with agents working through T cells such as checkpoint inhibitors or CAR-T cells as well as NK cell-based therapies are warranted.

Poster Title: CXCL12 Inhibition with NOX-A12 (Olaptesed Pegol) Increases T and NK Cell Infiltration and Synergizes with Immune Checkpoint Blockade and ADCC in Tumour-Stroma Spheroids
Authors: Dirk Zboralski, Anna Kruschinski, Dirk Eulberg and Axel Vater
Location & time: ESMO Congress 2016, Copenhagen, Denmark, 7-11 October 2016, Session Immunotherapy of cancer: Abstract #1083P, Hall E, Sunday, 9 October 2016, 13:00 - 14:00

The poster may be downloaded from the company’s website:

NOX-A12, which inhibits the key tumor microenvironment chemokine CXCL12, may be a key partner for a wide range of IO (immuno-oncology) agents. NOXXON has generated promising pre-clinical and clinical data, including recent animal data showing synergy with a checkpoint inhibitor as well as recent phase 2a trials in multiple myeloma and a second hematological cancer that showed a safety profile that supports further development and first signs of efficacy. The company believes that additional clinical trials are warranted to investigate combinations of NOX-A12 multiple classes of IO agents including those acting on or through T cells and NK cells.
