About IMGS-001, a PD-L1/PD-L2 Dual-Specific Inhibitor
ImmunoGenesis’ lead program is IMGS-001, a PD-L1/PD-L2 dual-specific inhibitor with an engineered cytotoxic effector function. As the first molecule to target PD-L2 in addition to PD-L1, IMGS-001 has the potential to shut down the entire PD-1 pathway, potentially providing superior blockade compared to other PD-1 or PD-L1 inhibitors. The built-in engineered effector function allows IMGS-001 to kill immunosuppressive cells that express PD-L1 and/or PD-L2. Preclinical data showed that IMGS-001 offered five times the response rate in cold tumors than currently available immunotherapies. Additionally, IMGS-001 can provide a foundation for add-on therapies.
ImmunoGenesis, Inc., is a clinical stage immune-oncology biopharmaceutical company re-envisioning “cold” tumor treatment. Representing more than half of all cancers, cold tumors lack activated T cells or have other immune resistance mechanisms, and current immunotherapies have shown limited to no efficacy. ImmunoGenesis’ immune therapies are based in the pathology of these cold tumors, transforming them into hot tumors by targeting key mechanisms of immune resistance.
