LeadArtis participates in the fourth Immunostimulatory Agonist Antibodies for Cancer Therapy (IACT) meeting in London (UK)


The fourth IACT review meeting took place on October 25-26, 2017 in London, United Kingdom. LeadArtis is a partner in the Immunostimulatory Agonist Antibodies for Cancer Therapy effort, a 6.9M€ funding initiative which incorporates long-standing expertise in agonist immunostimulatory antibodies (IS-Abs) from research institutions and small-medium enterprises (SEM) in five European countries (Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom). The IACT program aims to translate the agonist IS-Ab concept into immune oncology treatments (http://www.iact-project.eu/). Two ongoing clinical trials are pivotal to bring forward the pre-clinical Proof of Concept. Analogous SME-driven effort aims at the development of 2nd generation agonist IS-Abs with superior therapeutic index. LeadArtis is applying its Biespecific TrimerbodyTM technology for the generation of novel tumor targeting immune stimulating multivalent antibodies.
