BioInvent to Present BI-1206 Preclinical Data in Mantle Cell lymphoma at ASH 2019

LUND, Sweden, Nov. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BioInvent International AB (publ) (OMXS: BINV) today announces it will make a poster presentation with preclinical data on BI-1206 at the annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) meeting in Orlando, Florida held December 7-10.

The abstract, published here, highlights a preclinical study of BI-1206 in an ibrutinib-venetoclax dual resistant PDX model derived from a doubly-resistant mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) patient. Single agent BI-1206 had potent anti-MCL activity in the Fc RIIb-expressing MCL PDX model to overcome ibrutinib-venetoclax dual resistance.

Fc RIIb was further shown to be highly expressed in 27/27 primary patient MCL samples examined. Along with previously published data demonstrating an important role for Fc RIIB in resistance to rituximab-based cancer immunotherapy, and BI-1206 in boosting rituximab efficacy and overcoming rituximab-resistance, these data indicate the significant potential of BI-1206 to address a significant unmet need in MCL and hematologic malignancy.

BioInvent CEO Martin Welschof said: "These pre-clinical data indicate a broad and clinically important role of Fc RIIb in mantle cell lymphoma, and highlight the potential of BI-1206 to help overcome resistance in this indication. This further reinforces our belief that Fc RIIb will become a key element for treating hematological and solid malignancies, and the potential of BI-1206 to play an important role in combating these diseases."

BI-1206, one of BioInvent's proprietary anti-FcyRIIB antibodies and its lead compound, is currently being investigated in clinical trials in non-Hodgkin lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and solid tumors.

The press release contains statements about the future, consisting of subjective assumptions and forecasts for future scenarios. Predictions for the future only apply as the date they are made and are, by their very nature, in the same way as research and development work in the biotech segment, associated with risk and uncertainty. With this in mind, the actual outcome may deviate significantly from the scenarios described in this press release.
