Guangzhou, China --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bio-Thera Solutions, a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of innovative therapies and a pipeline of biosimilars, today announced that Jin-Chen Yu, SVP, Research will present a talk on BAT8009 (B7-H3-ADC) at the 2nd Annual ADC Target Selection Summit taking place December 6 - 8, 2022 in Boston, MA.
The talk, entitled “A Novel B7-H3 ADC With Strong Bystander Effect Demonstrates Superior Tumor-Inhibition Activity,” will present preclinical data that highlight advantages demonstrated by BAT8009 as a potential treatment for cancer patients. BAT8009 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1 clinical trial.
BAT8009 is a new ADC being developed with Bio-Thera’s next-gen ADC platform that utilizes a systemically stable cleavable linker, a potent Topoisomerase 1 inhibitor (Exatecan) as the payload, and high DARs that takes advantage of the bystander effect to increase efficacy. Other new ADC assets developed using this next-gen ADC platform include BAT8006 (Folate-Receptor-alpha-ADC), BAT8007 (Nectin4-ADC), BAT8008 (Trop2-ADC) and BAT8010 (Her2-ADC). All of these ADC assets are currently in, or about to begin, Phase 1 clinical trials.
BAT8009 is an investigational B7-H3-ADC being evaluated in multiple tumor types. B7-H3 is a naturally occurring receptor that is overexpressed in many types of cancer, including lung, liver, esophageal and ovarian cancer. BAT8009 is being developed for use as a single agent and in combination with other agents for the treatment of multiple cancers. BAT8009 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1 evaluating the pharmacodynamics and safety of BAT8009 (more information on the Phase 1 clinical trial is available at https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT05405621
