PharmAbcine to Participate in ACCESS CHINA Biotech Forum
DAEJEON, South Korea, September 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PharmAbcine Inc. (KOSDAQ: 208340ks), a clinical-stage biotech company focusing on the development of next generation antibody therapeutics, announced today that the Company will virtually participate in ACCESS CHINA Biotech Forum. The event will take place from September 23 – September 30, 2021.
ACCESS CHINA Biotech Forum is one of the largest corporate access events in China. It provides opportunities for business development, licensing deals, or commercial collaborations to global biopharmas. In the past event, more than 300 global companies that focus on oncology, cardiology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pediatrics, and gastroenterology areas have participated to enter or expand their products in the Chinese market.

During the event, PharmAbcine’s pre-recorded presentation video will be made available to Chinese pharmas or biotechs that are looking to enrich their pipeline through in-licensing deals. In the presentation video, the Company will introduce its core technology and update the R&D progress of the main pipelines such as olinvacimab, PMC-403, and PMC-309.
Olinvacimab, an anti-VEGFR2 (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor 2) fully human antibody, is the Company’s leading pipeline and is undergoing multiple global clinical trials. In early September 2021, PharmAbcine initiated a Phase II olinvacimab and pembrolizumab combo study for the treatment of mTNBC (metastatic Triple-Negative Breast Cancer) in Australia. Also, a Phase II olinvacimab mono study for bevacizumab-nonresponding rGBM (recurrent glioblastoma multiforme) patients at multiple sites in both US and Australia and two Phase Ib olinvacimab and pembrolizumab combo trials in mTNBC and rGBM in Australia are still ongoing.
PMC-403 is a novel TIE2-activating fully human antibody designed to stabilize and repair damaged blood vessels in a variety of diseases. PMC-403 is currently in development for treating AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration), DME (Diabetic Macular Edema), and DR (Diabetic Retinopathy) which are common abnormal vascular-related eye diseases. The Company expects PMC-403 to enter global clinical trials for both ophthalmology and oncology in 2022.
PMC-309 is a novel anti-VISTA (V-domain Ig Suppressor of T cell Activation) antagonizing antibody in development for the treatment of various tumor types. VISTA plays a pivotal role in maintaining the immunosuppressive environment around the tumor cells and is expressed primarily on MDSC (Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells) and Tregs (regulatory T cells). Blocking VISTA pathways activates T cells’ immune responses and leads to better anti-tumor effects. PMC-309 is expected to enter a global clinical trial in 2022.
