About lacutamab:

Lacutamab (IPH4102) is a first-in-class anti-KIR3DL2 cytotoxicity-inducing humanized antibody currently in clinical trials for the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), an orphan disease, and T-cell lymphoma T device (PTCL). Rare cutaneous T-cell lymphomas have a poor prognosis with few effective and safe treatment options in advanced stages.

KIR3DL2 is an inhibitory receptor of the KIR family, expressed by approximately 65% ​​of patients in all CTCL subtypes and expressed by up to 90% of patients with certain aggressive CTCL subtypes, in particular Sézary. It is expressed by up to 50% of patients with mycosis fungoides and peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). It has a restricted expression on normal tissues.

About ANKET™:

ANKET™ ( A antibody-based NK cell E engage J herapeutics) is Innate’s proprietary platform for the development of next-generation multispecific natural killer (NK) cell engagers to treat certain types of cancer.

This versatile and adaptive technology creates an entirely new class of molecules to induce synthetic immunity against cancer. It harnesses the benefits of harnessing NK cell effector functions against cancer cells and also provides targeted proliferation and activation signals to NK cells.

Our latest innovation, the tetra-specific ANKET molecule, is the first NK cell engagement technology to engage activating receptors (NKp46 and CD16), tumor antigen and interleukin-2 receptor (via a variant of the IL-2, IL-2v) via a single molecule.

About monalizumab:

Monalizumab is a potentially first-in-class immune checkpoint inhibitor targeting NKG2A receptors expressed on tumor-infiltrating CD8+ cytotoxic T cells and NK cells.

NKG2A is an inhibitory checkpoint receptor for HLA-E. By expressing HLA-E, cancer cells can protect themselves against destruction by NKG2A+ immune cells. HLA-E is frequently overexpressed in cancer cells of many solid tumors and hematological malignancies. Monalizumab may restore a broad NK and T cell-mediated anti-tumor response, and may increase the cytotoxic potential of other therapeutic antibodies 1.

Ongoing development of monalizumab focuses on studying monalizumab in various combination strategies in different malignancies, including, in early-onset lung cancer, the Phase 3 PACIFIC-9 study in adults with locally advanced (stage III), unresectable NSCLC who did not progress after concurrent platinum-based chemoradiotherapy and the NeoCOAST-2 phase 2 study in the early neoadjuvant setting of NSCLC.

About Innate Pharma:

Innate Pharma SA is a clinical-stage oncology-focused global biotechnology company dedicated to improving treatments and clinical outcomes for patients through antibody therapeutics that harness the immune system to fight cancer.

Innate Pharma’s large antibody portfolio includes several potentially first-in-class clinical and preclinical candidates in cancers with high unmet medical need.

Innate is a pioneer in understanding Natural Killer cell biology and has expanded its expertise in tumor microenvironment and tumor antigens, as well as antibody engineering.
