Apogenix Enters into Cooperation with R-Biopharm to Develop Companion Diagnostic Tests for Immuno-Oncology Candidate APG101

Apogenix announced that it has entered into an agreement with R-Biopharm to develop companion diagnostic tests for Apogenix' lead drug candidate APG101. APG101 is a CD95 ligand inhibitor which restores the body's immune response against tumors and inhibits invasive tumor cell growth. The drug candidate is being developed for the treatment of solid tumors and malignant hematological diseases. In a controlled phase II efficacy trial in patients with recurrent glioblastoma, treatment with APG101 in combination with radiotherapy has demonstrated clinical superiority in all study endpoints compared to treatment with radiotherapy alone. Glioblastoma patients with a certain biomarker associated with the CD95 ligand experienced the great benefit from treatment with APG101. The trial showed a statistically significant prolongation of overall survival in biomarker-positive patients treated with APG101, with a median overall survival of 16.1 months compared to 7.3 months in patients treated with radiotherapy alone. Based on different test technologies including immunohistochemistry (IHC) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Apogenix and R-Biopharm will develop patient-stratifying companion diagnostic tests to identify glioblastoma patients who are most likely to benefit from treatment with APG101. The cooperation further includes the development of in vitro diagnostic tests to determine expression of the CD95 ligand in other types of tumors. Apogenix will validate the resulting diagnostic tests in a pivotal phase II/III trial in glioblastoma and in additional clinical trials for the treatment of other solid tumors. These diagnostic tests will allow to develop APG101 as a targeted therapy for the treatment of cancer, so patients can benefit from a personalised treatment approach.
