iTeos Provides Business Updates and Clinical Development Plans for 2023
- 2023 will produce significant advances for both anti-TIGIT monoclonal antibody EOS-448/GSK4428859A and adenosine A2A receptor antagonist inupadenant
- Eleven clinical trials planned or ongoing against multiple tumor types, across three pipeline programs
- EOS-984, a first-in-class program targeting a new mechanism of action in the adenosine pathway, expected to enter clinical studies mid-2023
- Cash balance of $752MM as of September 30, 2022, expected to provide runway into 2026 through multiple inflection points across our portfolio
WATERTOWN, Mass. and GOSSELIES, Belgium, Jan. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iTeos Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ITOS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering the discovery and development of a new generation of immuno-oncology therapeutics for patients, today outlined business updates that are anticipated to advance its position in 2023, building a path to registration for its promising immunotherapy portfolio.
“2022 was a successful year of execution with multiple trial initiations across both clinical programs. In 2023, we will continue to progress our broad clinical plan against validated targets and benefit from informative readouts across the field. We expect to advance EOS-448, our anti-TIGIT, antibody, into Phase 3 in combination with GSK’s ant-PD-1, Jemperli (dostarlimab) and also continue to advance studies targeting the adenosine pathway through our inupadenant program. Additionally, EOS-984, a first-in-class therapy designed to inhibit a novel target in the adenosine pathway, is expected to enter the clinic in mid-2023 and we are very encouraged by the preclinical data we have in hand,” said Michel Detheux, Ph.D., president, and chief executive officer of iTeos. “Leveraging our scientific expertise, drug development capabilities, financial resources, and our strong partnership with GSK, we are in an enviable position as we kick off 2023. Throughout the year we will continue to advance these novel combinations to unlock the next wave of immunotherapies, generating additional data and value as we work to bring forward new treatment options to people with cancer.”
Clinical Development Plans
EOS-448/GSK4428859A: IgG1 anti-TIGIT monoclonal antibody designed to engage the Fc gamma receptor (FcγR) and enhance the anti-tumor response through multifaceted mechanisms.
- In collaboration with GSK, iTeos is evaluating EOS-448 as a potential next-generation immuno-oncology agent through multiple combination studies. Highlights include:
- Ongoing randomized Phase 2 trial assessing the doublet of GSK’s anti-PD-1, dostarlimab, with EOS-448 in previously untreated advanced / metastatic non-small cell lung cancer.
- Ongoing Phase 2 expansion study assessing the doublet of GSK’s anti-PD-1 dostarlimab with EOS-448 in 1L advanced or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
- Continued exploration of two novel triplets in selected advanced solid tumors, both in Phase 1b trials: EOS-448 with dostarlimab and GSK’s investigational anti-CD96 antibody and EOS-448 with dostarlimab and GSK’s anti-PVRIG.
- Advancement of the monotherapy dose escalation part of a Phase 1/2 trial evaluating EOS-448 as both a monotherapy and in combination with Bristol Myers Squibb’s iberdomide in multiple myeloma.
Inupadenant (EOS-850): Designed as an insurmountable and highly selective small molecule antagonist of the adenosine A2A receptor, the only high-affinity adenosine receptor expressed on multiple immune cells found in the tumor microenvironment. Highlights include:
- Phase 2 trial ongoing in post-IO metastatic non-squamous NSCLC to evaluate the combination of inupadenant with platinum-doublet chemotherapy compared to standard platinum-doublet chemotherapy.
- The biomarker-high cohort is ongoing, evaluating inupadenant as a monotherapy in patients with solid tumors selected for high biomarker expression.
EOS-984: First-in-class small molecule program targeting a novel mechanism in the adenosine pathway
- New clinical development program with the potential to fully reverse adenosine immune suppression, in combination with inupadenant, but also other standards of care.
- Anticipate entering clinical studies in mid-2023.
Cash Position: The company’s cash and cash equivalent position was $752.2 million as of September 30, 2022. The company continues to expect its cash balance to provide runway into 2026 to support differentiated clinical programs for EOS-448 and inupadenant as well as advance preclinical programs targeting immunosuppression pathways.
