- IMX-110 + Beigene/Novartis anti-PD-1 Tislelizumab combination designed to enhance response to solid tumors by turning immunologically “cold” tumors “hot”
- Initial data anticipated in 1H 2023
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immix Biopharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMMX) (“ImmixBio”, “Company”, “We” or “Us”), a biopharmaceutical company pioneering Tissue-Specific Therapeutics (TSTx)TM targeting oncology and immuno-dysregulated diseases, today announced dosing of the first 2 patients in its IMX-110 + Beigene/Novartis anti-PD-1 Tislelizumab Combination Phase 1b/2a Clinical Trial in patients with advanced solid tumors. Initial clinical data from this combination trial is anticipated to be released on a rolling basis beginning in 1H 2023. IMX-110 + Beigene/Novartis anti-PD-1 tislelizumab combination treatment is designed to enhance response to solid tumors by turning immunologically “cold” tumors “hot”. In ImmixBio prior IMX-110 + anti-PD-1 preclinical experiments, a 50% improvement (63-day median survival) was produced by IMX-110 + anti-PD-1 in a genetic (KPC) pancreatic cancer mouse model in which mice develop their own pancreatic cancer and have an intact immune system, compared to a 4-drug combination of 2 chemotherapies and 2 immunotherapies (anti-PD-1/anti-CD40/nab-paclitaxel/gemcitabine) in the same genetic pancreatic cancer mouse model (42-day median survival) according to Winograd et al., 2015.
“We are thrilled to kick-off this important milestone working with our partner BeiGene,” said Ilya Rachman, MD PhD, CEO of ImmixBio. “We believe the combination of IMX-110 + Beigene/Novartis anti-PD-1 Tislelizumab will have a synergistic effect that could bolster responses and expand the population of cancer patients benefiting from these therapies.”
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved orphan drug designation (“ODD”) for IMX-110 in soft tissue sarcoma. The FDA also approved Rare Pediatric Disease Designation (“RPDD”) for IMX-110 for the treatment of rhabdomyosarcoma, a life-threatening form of cancer in children. RPDD qualifies Immix Biopharma to receive fast track review, and a priority review voucher (“PRV”) at the time of marketing approval of IMX-110. PRV holders can benefit from an expedited six-month review of a new drug application for any disease by the FDA. IMX-110 is currently being evaluated in a phase 1b/2a clinical trial in patients with advanced solid tumors. Learn more at www.immixbio.com/iMX-110
