Apogenix develops innovative immunoncological protein drugs for the treatment of cancer and other malignant diseases. The company has a promising pipeline of drug candidates that exert their therapeutic effect by influencing various TNFSF (tumor necrosis factor superfamily)-dependent signaling pathways and thus restoring the immune response against tumors. APG101 is being developed for the treatment of solid tumors and malignant hematologic diseases and is in clinical trials for the treatment of glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive brain tumor, and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a stem cell disease that can lead to severe anemia. APG101 has demonstrated statistically significant efficacy in a controlled phase II efficacy study for the second-line treatment of glioblastoma. In particular, APG101 benefited patients in whose tumors a specific biomarker was detectable. Apogenix is developing a companion diagnostic test based on this biomarker to allow patients to benefit from a personalized therapy approach. The CD95 system, which is inhibited by APG101, plays an important role in the progress of many other solid tumors, demonstrating the potential of APG101 for the treatment of various types of cancer. Apogenix's highly qualified scientific team has developed a technology platform to develop novel TNFSF fusion proteins for broad oncology use that offer significant advantages over other biotherapeutics, such as antibodies. TNFSF proteins play a crucial role in regulating the immune response. The company has already successfully licensed the first program based on this technology platform, including the TRAIL receptor agonist APG880, to a large pharmaceutical company. Apogenix is currently working on the development of novel CD40, CD27, OX40, HVEM, GITR and 4-1BB agonists for cancer immunotherapy.
