Medigene to Present at Upcoming Scientific Conferences

Planegg/Martinsried, April 17, 2024. Medigene AG (Medigene or the “Company”, FSE: MDG1, Prime Standard), an immuno-oncology platform company focusing on the discovery and development of T cell immunotherapies for solid tumors, has been invited to present at the CHI’s 8th Annual Immuno-Oncology Summit Europe from April 23-25, 2024, in London, UK, as well as at the 7th International Neoantigen Summit to be held in Amsterdam, Netherlands from April 29 – May 1, 2024.

The presentations will be available on Medigene´s website after the conferences: https://medigene.com/science/abstracts/

Oral presentation:

CHI’s 8th Annual Immuno-Oncology Summit Europe 2024
https://www.immuno-oncologyeurope.com/
Location: Hilton London Canary Wharf, LondonDate and time: April 25, 2024, 13:15 – 13:45 pm local time
Presenter: Kirsty Crame, MD, VP Clinical Strategy & Development
Session: Novel approaches targeting solid tumors
Title: Medigene’s MDG1015, a Third-Generation TCR-T Therapy Incorporating the PD1-41BB Costimulatory Switch Protein, Advancing to the Clinic 

The work to be presented will highlight the Company’s lead candidate MDG1015, a first-in-class, third generation T cell receptor engineered T cell (TCR-T) therapy targeting NY-ESO-1/ LAGE-1a (New York oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma 1 / L Antigen Family Member-1a), armored and enhanced with the PD1-41BB costimulatory switch protein (CSP). A first-in-human trial for MDG1015 is planned for gastric cancer, ovarian cancer, myxoid/round cell liposarcoma and synovial sarcoma with IND/CTA filing targeted for 2H 2024.

 

Oral presentation: 

7th International Neoantigen Summit 2024
https://neoantigen-summit.com/
Location: Hotel Novotel Amsterdam City, Amsterdam
Date and time: May 1, 2024, 12:00 – 12:30 pm local time
Presenter: Dr. Giulia Longinotti, Director TCR Discovery Platform
Session: Illuminating Shared Neoantigen Therapies to Induce More Durable & Robust Immunity in a Larger Patient Population
Title: KRAS Mutation-Specific TCR-T Cells are Empowered for Improved Multi-Functionality & Durability by Inclusion of a Costimulatory Switch Protein

Dr. Longinotti will summarize the generation process of optimal affinity 3S (sensitive, specific and safe) TCRs targeting various Kirsten rat sarcoma virus specific mutations (mKRAS), armored and enhanced with the PD1-41BB CSP. In vitro data will showcase how armoring tools such as the PD1-41BB CSP can enhance TCR-T cell functionality, and will also illustrate how the composition of the drug product can be optimized for safety, efficacy and durability.
