|Date||Candidate||Mechanism of action||Indication||Route||Modality||Development stage||Note|
|12/20/18||GEM056||Novel PDL1/CDx bispecific antibody||Cancer with T cell inactivation and CDC inactivation||Injection||Proteins
||Preclinical||First bispecific combining the following two mechanisms: 1) Release cancer repression on T cell activation not only by blocking PDL1/PD1 interaction, but also by inducing PDL1 internalization into cancer cells; 2) Release cancer repression on CDC by downregulation of CDC repressor overexpressed by cancer cells (CDx is a CDC repressor overexpressed by multiple cancers, this bispecific can induce CDx internalization on cancer cells).||Contact|
|12/20/18||GEM055||Novel CD20/CD3 bispecific antibody||Rituxan resistant cancer||Infusion||Proteins
||Preclinical||Unique features by computational designed bispecific antibody:
1) Better safety to reduce CDR: T cell activation and T cell killing are only detected in the presence of target cancer cell
2) Multiple MOA to target cancer heterogeneity: Extremely low CD3 binding enables “safe maintenance" of ADCC/CDC in addition to T cell killing. This BsAb can delay cancer relapse compared to Rituximab
3) Better developability : More than 95% of heterodimer formation due to novel Fc mutations on top of a pair of "knob into hole", designed biochemical and biophysical difference between the two arms enables easier purification.
|12/13/18||GEM054||Intracellular superoxide removing agent||Please refer to Note||IV||Small molecules
||Phase 2||Indication: Chemotherapy induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN)
