CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Surface Oncology (Nasdaq: SURF), a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company developing next-generation immunotherapies that target the tumor microenvironment, today announced that it will present at the Society for the Immunotherapy of Cancer’s (SITC) 34th Annual Meeting in National Harbor, MD. The presentations will include posters highlighting preclinical data from three programs in the Company’s portfolio, SRF388 (targeting IL-27), SRF617 (targeting CD39) and SRF231 (targeting CD47).
“Each therapeutic candidate at Surface provides a compelling and differentiated biological rationale as an anti-tumor agent, with SRF617 and SRF388 IND filings anticipated in the fourth quarter of 2019," said Vito Palombella, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of Surface Oncology. “As demonstrated in these preclinical data presentations, the Surface team performs world-class research that has given us unique insights into these important immunomodulatory pathways.”
Selected details of preclinical data presented in the posters include:
Friday, November 8, 2019:
Poster #P805: SRF388, a first-in-class, fully human monoclonal antibody targeting IL-27, blocks the immunoregulatory effects of IL-27 in immune cells and demonstrates preclinical in vivo anti-tumor activity
Saturday, November 9, 2019:
Poster #P652: The fully human antibody SRF617 is a potent enzymatic inhibitor of CD39 with strong immunomodulatory activity
Poster# P272: SRF231, a fully human high-affinity anti-CD47 antibody, exerts potent preclinical antitumor activity through engagement of the Fc receptor (FcR), CD32a
The posters will be available to view on the Surface Oncology website, here.
