VIB will become a shareholder alongside ThromboGenics in this new oncology venture. ThromboGenics will be the majority shareholder. TB-403 is a humanized monoclonal antibody against placental growth factor. PlGF is expressed in several types of cancer, including medulloblastoma. High expression of the PlGF receptor neuropilin 1 has been shown to correlate with poor overall survival. Medulloblastoma is a rare, life-threatening brain tumor that mainly affects children. Treatment with TB-403 in relevant animal models for medulloblastoma has demonstrated beneficial effects on tumor growth and survival. The antibody can potentially be used in other pediatric cancer indications, including neuroblastoma. Oncurious now plans to start a Phase I/IIa program with TB-403 in medulloblastoma patients. Enrollment of the first patient is expected for the end of 2015. The favorable safety profile of TB-403 has already been demonstrated in clinical trials in patients with other diseases. BioInvent International AB will act as a co-development partner for this oncology project. ThromboGenics has retained the exclusive license for use of TB-403 in ophthalmic indications.
