Key Highlights – October to End of December
- In an oral session at the Society of Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) congress, NIT presented new evidence of NT-I7 clinical efficacy in combination with pembrolizumab in relapsed/refractory (r/r) gastrointestinal tumors.
- NeoImmuneTech presented its first data on NT-I7 (efineptakin alfa) in combination with CAR-T tisagenlecleucel at American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual congress.
- NIT became a member of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact.
Strong presence at ASH and SITC annual meetings where NIT presented new evidence on NT-I7
◎ On November 8-12, at SITC annual meeting, Dr. A. Naing (University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center) discussed preliminary results of the phase 2a clinical trial NIT-110 focused on the follow-up of two cohorts of patients with relapsed/refractory (r/r) gastrointestinal indications. Results showed an ORR of 30.8% and a DCR of 69.2% per iRECIST across the groups in patients without liver metastasis (n=13/50). Among the patients without liver metastasis, the probability of survival rate through 60 weeks was 100%, which is significantly higher than in those with liver metastasis. It was also confirmed that the combination of NT-I7 plus pembrolizumab boosts CD8+ T cell infiltration in patients regardless of liver metastasis. Data also suggested that increased CD8+ T cell infiltration correlates with higher OS and favors a tumor microenvironment that contributes to the overall high DCR observed in these hard-to-treat CPI-resistant indications.
◎ On December 10-13, NIT presented poster data on NIT-112 phase 1b trial, the first and only clinical trial that aims to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and preliminary anti-tumor activity of NT-I7, after treatment with tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah®) in patients with relapsed/refractory large B-cell Lymphoma (r/r LBCL) at ASH congress. A single dose of NT-I7 at the CAR-T contraction phase (day 21) was able to increase both the absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) and the CAR-T absolute numbers. No serious adverse events like CRS and ICAN were observed.
NIT has continued its on-going effort to present the clinical achievement of NT-I7
◎ On October 3-4, at the Biomarker and Immuno Congress in San Diego, California, USA, Byung Ha Lee, PhD, SVP & Chief Scientific Officer of NIT gave an oral presentation on “Developing A Translational Strategy For A T Cell Pipeline”.
◎ On October 12, at the Immuno-Oncology Summit in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, Byung Ha Lee, PhD, SVP & Chief Scientific Officer of NIT gave a presentation on the “Promising Early Clinical Efficacy in Immune Cold Tumors with NT-I7 in Combination with Pembrolizumab”.
◎ On August 4-5 and October 16-19, respectively at the Radiation Injury Treatment Network (RITN) 2022 Workshop and the Radiation Research Society (RRS) 68th Annual International Meeting, NIT presented the first preclinical results from a study conducted by Duke University with the support of NIT on the effect of NT-I7 on T cell reconstitution following total body irradiation (TBI).
Building and strengthening NIT’s deeply rooted commitment for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) activities.
◎ On October 11, NIT announced that it became a member of the UN Global Compact. This global, strategic initiative illustrates NIT’s commitment to responsible business practices in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and corruption.

About NT-I7 (efineptakin alfa) (rhIL-7-hyFc)
NT-I7 (efineptakin alfa) is the only clinical-stage long-acting human IL-7, and is being developed in oncologic and immunologic indications, where T cell amplification and increased functionality may provide clinical benefits. IL-7 is a fundamental cytokine for naïve and memory T cell development and for sustaining immune response to chronic antigens (as in cancer) or foreign antigens (as in infectious diseases). NT-I7 exhibits favorable PK/PD and safety profiles, making it an ideal combination partner. NT-I7 is being studied in multiple clinical trials in solid tumors and as a vaccine adjuvant. Studies are being planned for testing in hematologic malignancies, additional solid tumors, and other immunology-focused indications.
About NeoImmuneTech, Inc.
NeoImmuneTech, Inc. (NIT) is a clinical-stage T cell-focused biopharmaceutical company dedicated to expanding the horizon of immuno-oncology and enhancing immunity to infectious diseases. NIT is led by the scientific founder and inventor of NT-I7 (efineptakin alfa) and has a strong executive team with rich industry experience. NIT is expanding rapidly in personnel and operations, as well as partnering with industry and academic leaders to investigate NT-I7 as monotherapy and in combination with various immunotherapeutics.
