Altor Bioscience Corporation Initiates Clinical Development of its Novel IL-15 Super Agonist ALT-803 for Relapsed / Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Altor BioScience Corporation announced that it has enrolled patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (MM) in a clinical trial using its IL-15-based immunostimulatory complex ALT-803. This study is supported by a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II grant recently awarded to Altor by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The MM trial represents the fourth clinical trial in the United States (U.S.) launched by Altor for the ALT-803 superagonist complex in the fight against cancer. As the second most common blood cancer, MM is a cancer of the plasma cells involved in producing antibodies, causing cancer cells to accumulate in the bone marrow and crowding out normal blood cells from fighting off infection. ALT-803 is considered one of the most promising novel immunotherapeutic agents by NCI for cancer treatment. In preclinical studies, ALT-803 potently activates immune cells to defend against disease, simultaneously mobilizing both the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system to elicit rapid and long-lasting anti-tumor responses. Encouraging preclinical studies of ALT-803 in MM led to the development of the ALT-803 clinical study in patients with relapsed or refractory MM. According to NCI, there will be an estimated 24,050 new cases of MM and 11,090 deaths due to MM in the U.S. in 2014. MM is a disease of the elderly with a median age at diagnosis of 69 years. The number of MM patients is expected to increase over time due to the increasing life expectancy of the normal population. Unfortunately, even with the development of novel therapies recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), MM remains an incurable disease and many patients with the disease will eventually relapse. Therefore, Altor's strategy for ALT-803 is to fulfill the needs of this segment of the market and complement or improve the efficacy of currently available therapies.
