Kymab to present data on its lead immuno-oncology antibody, demonstrating strong potential for inhibiting tumour growth

Kymab Group Limited (“Kymab”), a biopharmaceutical company developing fully human monoclonal antibody therapeutics, today announces that data on KY1044 (a novel anti-ICOS antibody), the lead candidate in its immuno-oncology pipeline, will be presented at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer’s (SITC) 32nd Annual Meeting. The data, based on non-human tumour models, suggest KY1044 strongly inhibits tumour growth, including complete remissions, in a number of cancer models both as a monotherapy and acting synergistically in combination with checkpoint inhibitors such as anti-PD-L1.
