• IPH45 abstract selected for oral presentation at AACR Annual Meeting 2024
  • Preclinical data support further development of IPH45, a differentiated topoisomerase I inhibitor ADC targeting Nectin-4, which is progressing towards the clinic

MARSEILLE, France I March 06, 2024 I Innate Pharma SA (Euronext Paris: IPH; Nasdaq: IPHA) (“Innate” or the “Company”) today announced that an abstract regarding its preclinical asset IPH45, a novel and differentiated topoisomerase I inhibitor Antibody Drug Conjugate (ADC) targeting Nectin-4, has been selected for oral presentation at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2024, taking place April 5-10 in San Diego, California.

“We are excited to present our findings on IPH45 at this year’s AACR. IPH45 is a cutting-edge ADC that delivers a topoisomerase I inhibitor to tumors expressing Nectin-4. Our studies demonstrate that IPH45 effectively inhibits tumor growth both in vitro and in vivo, and it exhibits a favorable safety profile in preclinical studies,” stated Prof. Eric Vivier, DVM, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer at Innate Pharma. “These promising results underscore the potential of IPH45 and reflect our dedication to pioneering the next wave of cancer treatments through advanced antibody engineering. Based on these encouraging data, we are eagerly advancing IPH45 towards clinical trials.”

About IPH45

Nectin-4 is a cell membrane adhesion protein overexpressed in several solid tumors, including urothelial, breast, lung, ovarian, and pancreatic cancers, with limited expression in normal tissues. IPH45 is a novel topoisomerase I inhibitor Antibody Drug Conjugate (ADC) targeting Nectin-4. In non-clinical models, IPH45 is well tolerated and shows anti-tumor efficacy in vitro and in vivo. IPH45 is progressing towards First in Human Studies.
