PharmAbcine to Present Preclinical Data on PMC-402, Blood Vessel Stabilization in Tumor Microenvironment at AACR Annual Meeting 2020.


PharmAbcine Inc. (KOSDAQ: 208340) announced today that it will present a poster on PMC-402 at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2020 that will be held on Apr. 24th – Apr. 29th in San Diego, CA. The poster will be presented in the “Angiogenesis and vascular normalization in tumor immunity and treatment response” session.


PMC-402 is a next generation therapeutic antibody that regulates the formation of functional blood vessels. During the presentation, PharmAbcine will highlight a unique molecular mechanism of PMC-402 and its anti-tumor activity, supported by preclinical data including changes in capillary formation, improvement of hypoxic condition in TME, and increased numbers of TILs (Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes) upon a treatment with PMC-402. PharmAbcine will also present PMC-402’s anti-tumor effect observed in a colon cancer model following a single agent therapy or combination therapy with anti-PD1 antibody. The details of poster presentation are as follows:


Poster Presentation:

  • Ÿ   Title: A novel anti-Tie2 antibody stabilized vessel and increased tumor infiltrated lymphocyte
  • Ÿ   Session Title: Angiogenesis and Vascular Normalization in Tumor Immunity and Treatment Response
  • Ÿ   Session Date and Time: Monday Apr 27, 2020, 9:00 AM- 12:30 PM (PST)
  • Ÿ   Location: San Diego Convention Center, Exhibit Halls A-F, Poster Section 14
  • Ÿ   Poster Board Number: 10
  • Ÿ   Permanent Abstract Number: 1483

PharmAbcine has been developing PMC-402 by utilizing years of experience and expertise in developing therapeutic antibodies, including an anti-VEGFR2 antibody, olinvacimab, which is currently in a phase II clinical trial. On the grounds that PMC-402 can constitutively induce normalization of leaky blood vessels formed around tumor mass in a ligand-independent manner, PMC-402 demonstrated its anti-tumor effect in a mouse model of colon cancer, corroborated by the improvement in immune cell infiltration and delivery of anti-cancer agents to a tumor site when administered as a single agent or as a combination therapy regimen. In addition to treating cancer patients, attributed to its notable activity in restoring pathological leaky blood vessels, we expect that PMC-402 will be beneficial to treat AMD or DR patients. PharmAbcine is planning to initiate IND enabling studies this year and submit IND in 2021.
