Mersana Therapeutics announced the initiation of patient dosing in its Phase 1 clinical trial of XMT-2056, the company’s lead Immunosynthen product candidate.


Mersana announced initiation of Phase 1 of XMT-2056 in HER2-expressing tumors

XMT-2056 is a systemically administered Immunosynthen STING agonist ADC that is designed to target a novel HER2 epitope and locally activate STING signaling in both tumor-resident immune cells and in tumor cells to provide the potential to treat patients with HER2-high or -low tumors as monotherapy or in combination with standard-of-care agents.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted orphan drug designation to XMT-2056 for the treatment of gastric cancer. The multicenter Phase 1 open-label trial will investigate XMT-2056 in previously treated patients with advanced/recurrent solid tumors expressing HER2, including breast, gastric, colorectal and non-small-cell lung cancers. The dose escalation and dose expansion portions of the trial will evaluate and characterize the relationship of safety, tolerability and exposure of XMT-2056 and the ADC’s effect on patient responses by overall response rate, duration of response and disease control rate.


Amgen enters a deal with Synaffix to use its ADC and linker technologies

Amgen will gain access to Synaffix’ GlycoConnect, HydraSpace and toxSYN antibody-drug conjugate and linker technologies — the twelfth licensing agreement for the Dutch company, and the second to be announced this week after a partnership with Hummingbird Bioscience. Synaffix will be eligible to receive up to $2 billion in payments spanning signature, program nomination and milestone payments, plus tiered royalties on commercial sales.

Bliss completed Series B adding $15 million to develop its ADC pipeline

Chinese Bliss Biopharma completed a series B+ round of more RMB100 million ($15 million) to help fund clinical development of its pipeline of ADCs including BB-1701 and BB-1705 to treat solid tumors. The financing was led by IN Capital, with participation from existing investors Oriental Fortune Capital and Sherpa Healthcare Partners.
