Immunocore to Present New Tebentafusp (IMCgp100) Data in Advanced Melanoma at Upcoming 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting

Share

Immunocore Limited, a leading T cell receptor (TCR) biotechnology company, will present new mechanism of action data in advanced uveal and cutaneous melanoma from the tebentafusp clinical research programme at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago on 3 June 2019. Tebentafusp (IMCgp100) is a novel bispecific biologic T cell receptor therapy with an anti-CD3 immune-redirecting effector function and specifically targets gp100, a lineage antigen expressed in melanocytes and melanoma.

“At ASCO, we will present clinical and biomarker data from our lead bispecific tebentafusp programme that provide insight into its mechanism of action,” said David Berman, Head of Research and Development at Immunocore. “We believe these data will translate across our ImmTAC platform and provide another step towards identifying which patient populations benefit.”

Poster discussion/poster: Pharmacodynamic effect of IMCgp100 (TCR–CD3 bispecific) on peripheral cytokines and association with overall survival in patients with advanced melanoma (Abstract #9523, Poster #94)

  • Highlighting new mechanism of action results for tebentafusp (IMCgp100), this poster will be presented by Mark Middleton, MD, Head, Department of Oncology, University of Oxford, on Monday 3 June, 1:15-4:45 p.m. CDT in Hall A.
  • The poster will also be discussed by Sophie Piperno-Neumann, MD, Department of Medical Oncology, Institut Curie, in the Melanoma/Skin Cancers poster discussion session on Monday 3 June, 4:30-6:00 p.m. CDT in Room E451.
