Immunotherapeutics

Apogenix develops innovative immunotherapeutics for the treatment of cancer and viral infections, such as COVID-19. The company has built a promising pipeline of drug candidates that target different TNFSF-dependent signaling pathways, thereby reducing lymphopenia and inflammatory cell death in patients with viral infections and restoring the anti-tumor immune response in cancer patients.

Asunercept

Clinical Development in Three Indications

Our lead immunotherapy candidate asunercept is in clinical development for the treatment of solid tumors, malignant hematological diseases, and COVID-19. It has shown significant improvements in progression-free survival and quality of life as well as a positive trend in overall survival in a controlled phase II proof-of-concept trial in recurrent glioblastoma. In a phase I trial in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), treatment with asunercept led to a decrease in transfusion frequency in 40 percent of patients during the duration of the trial.

Technology

The Apogenix team has created the HERA-ligand technology platform for the development of novel receptor agonists that target different TNFSF-dependent signaling pathways, which play a crucial role in the regulation of the immune response. These fusion proteins offer clear advantages over other biologics such as antibodies and have the potential for broad application in oncology.
