Adcentrx Therapeutics to Present Preclinical Data for Nectin-4 ADC Program at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2024

  • Preclinical data support clear differentiation of Adcentrx’s platform and lead program, ADRX-0706, currently being evaluated in a Phase 1a/b clinical trial

SAN DIEGOApril 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Adcentrx Therapeutics (“Adcentrx”), a biotechnology company revolutionizing Antibody-Drug Conjugate (ADC) therapeutics for cancer and other life-threatening diseases, today announced that preclinical data for ADRX-0706 will be presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2024, taking place April 5-10, 2024, in San Diego, CA.

The three presentations will include preclinical data for Adcentrx’s lead ADC program, ADRX-0706. The ADC is comprised of a novel fully human IgG1 antibody targeting human Nectin-4 linked to a novel tubulin inhibitor payload, AP052, through Adcentrx’s proprietary i-Conjugation™ technology using a cleavable linker and stable conjugation chemistry. This novel platform technology generates highly stable ADCs with a drug-antibody ratio of eight (DAR 8), substantially expanding the therapeutic window of auristatin-based ADCs beyond existing vedotin technology. The preclinical data presentations show improved therapeutic window of ADRX-0706, enhanced bystander effect and improved payload delivery to Nectin-4 expressing tumors while minimizing exposure to normal tissues.

About ADRX-0706

ADRX-0706 is a fully proprietary ADC product candidate discovered by Adcentrx. The antibody component targets Nectin-4, a cell surface adhesion protein over-expressed in multiple human cancers and associated with poor disease prognosis. ADRX-0706 has a favorable pharmacokinetic and safety profile in preclinical models, and has demonstrated significant efficacy across a variety of tumor indications in vitro and in vivo. ADRX-0706 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1a/b clinical trial.

For more information about the ADRX-0706 Phase 1a/b clinical trial, please refer to the Study ID NCT06036121 on ClinicalTrials.gov.
