Celldex Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLDX) announced that the United States
Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued US Patent No: 8,481,029
entitled "Human immune therapies using a CD27 agonist alone or in combination
with other immune modulators" which broadly supports the Company's product
candidate CDX-1127. CD27, a signaling molecule expressed on T lymphocytes, can
be effectively manipulated with activating antibodies to induce potent
anti-tumor responses and, due to the restricted expression and regulation of
CD27, may result in less toxicity--overcoming a key barrier that other targets
in this class have faced. CDX-1127 is a fully human monoclonal antibody (mAb)
that targets CD27 and is currently in Phase 1 clinical development for the
treatment of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies.
