ALX Oncology, a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company developing therapies to block the CD47 checkpoint mechanism, will present clinical and pharmacodynamic biomarker data from the solid tumor combination cohorts of the ongoing ALX148 Phase 1 clinical program at the SITC 34th Annual Meeting. As of September 23, 2019, eighty-two patients with advanced malignancies were administered ALX148 in combination with standard regimens of either trastuzumab (n=30) or pembrolizumab (n=52). Objective responses were observed in expansion cohorts for response-evaluable patients with gastric/gastroesophageal junction cancer (G/GEJ) and squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC). A summary of results is described below.Patients with HER2 positive G/GEJ (n=19) whose tumors had progressed on prior systemic therapy, including HER2-targeted therapy, demonstrated an objective response rate (ORR) of 21% and a disease control rate (DCR) of 26%.Patients with HNSCC (n=20) whose tumors had progressed on prior platinum therapy, demonstrated an ORR of 20% and a DCR of 30%. In checkpoint inhibitor-naïve subjects (n=10), an ORR of 40% and a DCR of 40% were observed.ALX148 was well tolerated with no maximum tolerated dose reached. Treatment-related adverse events were mostly of low grade and frequency.Complete CD47 target occupancy was observed throughout the dosing interval with no impact on circulating immune cell populations following ALX148 combination treatments.Immunohistochemistry analysis using paired pre- and on-study tumor biopsies showed a statistically significant increase in intratumoral macrophages in pembrolizumab and trastuzumab combinations, and an increase in intratumoral CD8+ cells in combination with pembrolizumab.RNA expression analysis from paired tumor biopsies suggest increased dendritic cells, cytotoxic cells, as well as gene signatures associated with antigen presentation, myeloid cell activity and tumor inflammation following ALX148 in combination with pembrolizumab.
