The abstract highlights initial results of the Phase I/II TORCH-2 study evaluating ATG-008/onatasertib in combination with toripalimab, an anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody, in patients with advanced solid tumors.
“Antengene is focused on transforming cancer care. Treatment of patients with advanced tumors and relapsed or resistant disease is a priority for us. We believe that treatment regimens that combine targeted therapies and immune-oncology agents have considerable promise in improving cancer outcomes. Specifically, we believe that the combination of ATG-008 and the PD-1 inhibitor, toripalimab, could be useful in the treatment of advanced solid tumors and so we are pleased to share the data from the TORCH-2 study with the oncology community,” said Dr. Kevin Lynch, Antengene’s Chief Medical Officer.
