IN8bio Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2023 Financial Results and Recent Business Highlights

  • Reported the First-Ever Durable Persistence of an Allogeneic Cellular Therapy from a Phase 1 Study of INB-100 in Leukemia where 100% of Evaluable Patients (n=10) Treated Remained in Remission, including six Patients Alive and Progression Free Past 12 Months

  • Presented Positive Results from a Phase 1 Study in Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma (GBM) Demonstrating All Patients Treated with INB-200 Exceeded Progression-Free Survival (PFS) of Seven Months at the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) 28th Annual Meeting

  • Appointed Dr. Corinne Epperly, M.D., M.P.H. to Board of Directors

  • Closed Private Placement in December 2023 with Initial Gross Proceeds of $14.4 Million to Provide Cash Runway into 1Q 2025

NEW YORK, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IN8bio, Inc. (Nasdaq: INAB), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative gamma-delta T cell therapies, today reported financial results and business highlights for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2023.

“IN8bio entered 2024 with significant momentum behind the company,” said William Ho, CEO and co-founder of IN8bio. “Despite the difficult environment in 2023, the IN8bio team executed operationally and successfully advanced our programs. We presented positive data across our major clinical programs in leukemia and GBM, broadened our clinical portfolio, and strengthened our financial position by securing funding into 1Q 2025. We presented updated data from our INB-100 study at the 65th American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting, which was the first time any allogeneic cellular therapy has reported sustained efficacy and long-term cell persistence through 365 days. This showcases the potential of gamma-delta T cells to provide long-term durable remissions for patients with leukemia. We believe that IN8bio is well-positioned for significant near- and long-term catalysts as we advance our pipeline of gamma-delta T cell therapies to potentially extend survival in some of the most aggressive forms of cancer.”

Business Highlights and Recent Developments

  • Announced positive INB-100 data at the 65th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting & Exposition demonstrating that 100% of evaluable leukemia patients (n=10) treated remained alive, progression-free, and in durable complete remission (CR) as of November 3, 2023. The data showed long-term in-vivo expansion and persistence of allogeneic gamma-delta T cells 365 days following a single administration of INB-100. The study demonstrated the first-ever durable persistence of an allogeneic cellular therapy.
  • Reported positive data on INB-200 at the 28th SNO Annual Meeting. All patients who completed mandated doses surpassed a median PFS of seven months, exceeded the standard-of-care median PFS of four to seven months, with one patient in Cohort 2 remaining alive and progression free past 28.5 months as of October 20, 2023. In addition, most patients exceeded the expected PFS based on their age and methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) status of their tumors.
  • Announced a private placement totaling up to $46.9 million in potential gross proceeds. The initial closing of $14.4 million is expected to support operational execution and extended the Company’s cash runway into 1Q 2025 with the potential for up to $32.5 million in additional capital at increasing valuations, subject to certain conditions.
  • Initiated enrollment for the Phase 2 study of INB-400 in newly diagnosed GBM.
  • Announced publication in Frontiers in Immunology on IN8bio’s DeltEx Drug Resistant Immunotherapy (DRI) as a rational therapeutic approach to newly diagnosed glioblastoma titled, “Adoptive Cell Therapy for High Grade Gliomas using Simultaneous Temozolomide and Intracranial MGMT-Modified γδ T cells Following Standard Post-Resection Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy: Current Strategy and Future Directions.”
  • Appointed Dr. Corinne Epperly, M.D., M.P.H., an internationally recognized immuno-oncology and cell therapy executive with 20 years of experience, to the Board of Directors.

Upcoming Anticipated Pipeline Milestones and Events

  • INB-100: Enroll an additional 10 patients in an expansion cohort at the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) and report Phase 1 long-term follow-up results at multiple medical meetings throughout 2024; potentially submit investigational new drug (IND) application for Phase 3 randomized control trial in 2024.
  • INB-200: Report Phase 1 long-term follow up results at multiple medical meetings in 2024.
  • INB-300: Present additional preclinical data demonstrating proof-of-concept for the nsCAR platform targeting CD33 and CD123 at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in April 2024.
  • INB-400: Dose first patient and treat up to 15 patients at multiple sites across the United States in the Phase 2 trial in newly diagnosed GBM; potentially submit IND for Phase 1b allogeneic gamma-delta T cell study in relapsed GBM in 2024.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Research and Development (R&D) expenses: R&D expenses were $4.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to $4.0 million for the comparable prior year period. R&D expenses were $16.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $14.1 million in the prior year. The increase in R&D expenses was primarily due to increased personnel-related costs, including salaries, benefits, and non-cash stock-based compensation due to increased headcount, as well as increased third-party clinical trial-related activities for the INB-100 and INB-200 programs. The increase was partially offset by a reduction in contract research organization expenses for INB-400 related to the IND filing in the prior year.
  • General and administrative (G&A) expenses: G&A expenses were $3.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to $3.9 million for the comparable prior year period. G&A expenses were $13.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $14.5 million in the prior year. The decrease in G&A expenses was primarily due to cost savings related to D&O insurance premiums and reductions in professional services.
  • Net loss: The company reported a net loss of $7.6 million, or $0.22 per basic and diluted common share, for the three months ended December 31, 2023, compared to a net loss of $7.8 million, or $0.32 per basic and diluted common share, for the comparable prior year period. For the year ended December 31, 2023, net loss was $30.0 million, or $1.00 per basic and diluted common share, compared to a net loss of $28.5 million, or $1.36 per basic and diluted common share, for the prior year.
  • Cash position: As of December 31, 2023, the Company had cash of $21.3 million, compared to $18.2 million as of December 31, 2022.
