Novel adenosine gene signature biomarker associated with response to CPI-444 therapyCPI-006 early clinical data showed evidence of immune activation of B cells and effect on lymphocyte traffickingBURLINGAME, Calif., Nov. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corvus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRVS), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of precisely targeted oncology therapies, today announced updated clinical and biomarker data from ongoing Phase 1/1b studies of its lead programs, CPI-444 and CPI-006. Updated results from its Phase 1/1b clinical trial of CPI-444 in patients with treatment-refractory renal cell carcinoma (RCC) demonstrated an overall survival (OS) of 88 percent at more than 20 months follow-up with CPI-444 administered in combination with atezolizumab. The clinical data were presented in an oral session at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer's (SITC) 33rd Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., by Lawrence Fong, M.D., study investigator and leader of the Cancer Immunotherapy Program at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.Additionally, CPI-444 biomarker data from the Phase 1/1b study showing that expression of a novel adenosine gene signature was significantly associated with tumor regression were presented both in the oral presentation and in a poster session at the SITC meeting. Early clinical data from an ongoing Phase 1/1b study evaluating CPI-006 as a monotherapy showing evidence of immune activation of B cells were presented in a poster session.CPI-444, Corvus’ lead product candidate, is a selective and potent inhibitor of the adenosine A2A receptor. It is currently being evaluated in Phase 1/1b and 1b/2 clinical trials in patients with various solid tumors as a monotherapy and in combination with Genentech’s atezolizumab, an anti-PD-L1 antibody. CPI-006 is a humanized monoclonal antibody directed against CD73. It is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1/1b three-arm clinical trial in patients with a variety of solid tumors as a monotherapy, in combination with CPI-444, and in combination with pembrolizumab, an anti-PD-1 antibody.“The newest data on our two lead programs further establish a promising foundation for the application of adenosine blockade in cancer therapy,” said Richard A.
