NeoImmuneTech to Show Significant Advances on NT-I7 (efineptakin alfa) at 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting


Poster discussion will highlight anti-tumor activities of NT-I7 combined with pembrolizumab in heavily pretreated patients for whom checkpoint inhibitors are usually ineffective


NeoImmuneTech, Inc. (NIT or “NeoImmuneTech”), a clinical-stage T cell-focused biopharmaceutical company, today announced it will present new clinical data for its lead asset NT-I7 (efineptakin alfa) across three presentations at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting, to be held in Chicago, June 3-7, 2022. These include one poster discussion and two poster displays.


Dr. Se Hwan Yang, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of NeoImmuneTech said: “We are pleased that the ASCO Scientific Program Committee selected our abstract on the efficacy and safety of NT-I7 in combination with pembrolizumab for a poster discussion. While the abstract was based on data cutoff as of January 14, 2022, the actual Phase 2a data presented and discussed at the congress will have a few additional months of follow-up. They will shed new light on the benefit of combining NT-I7 with a checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) in patients with immune-cold microsatellite stable colorectal cancer or pancreatic cancer and in those who progressed on previous CPI treatment. We are also excited to report progress made with NT-I7 administration after CAR-T infusion, another important area of potential NT-I7 use.”
