AACR 2016: Innate Pharma displays broad innovative pipeline in immuno-oncology

  • Five posters presented by Innate Pharma and collaborators;
  • New data further supporting the rationale of four of Innate's clinical and preclinical programs;
  • New checkpoint inhibitor program targeting CD73 strengthens Innate's positioning in targeting the tumor microenvironment.

MARSEILLE, France, March 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innate Pharma SA (the "Company" - Euronext Paris: FR0010331421 - IPH) announces today that new preclinical data will be presented at the American Association Of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2016 taking place from 16 to 20 April 2016, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.

These data supports the rationale of four of Innate's clinical and preclinical programs:

- One poster will present preclinical data supporting the rationale for combining an NKG2A checkpoint inhibitor with a PD-1 or a PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitor in mouse models;

- One poster will present new data reinforcing the rationale for IPH4301, a first-in-class anti-MICA/B humanized antibody;

- Three posters will present preclinical data on new discovery programs targeting CD73 and CD39, immune checkpoints regulating the adenosine pathway, including one poster reporting data generated by OREGA Biotech, Innate's collaborator on the CD39 project.

Nicolai Wagtmann, Chief Scientific Officer of Innate Pharma, said: "The AACR annual meeting is one of the major events in our field. This year, we are proud to present 5 posters, demonstrating the progress of our pipeline and the excellence of Innate Pharma's science. These data support the rationale and the potential of our assets, and strengthen Innate's unique positioning in the immuno-oncology field".

Beyond posters presentations, Innate Pharma's team will be present with a booth (#2604) to receive its peers and the financial community at AACR.

Nicolai Wagtmann, Chief Scientific Officer of Innate Pharma, will hold a conference call to the attention of analysts and portfolio managers to discuss the data published and Company's innovative pipeline.
