CAMBRIDGE, England and CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- F-star Therapeutics Ltd., a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company focused on transforming the lives of patients with cancer through the development of innovative tetravalent bispecific (mAb2™) antibodies, today announced that it will present two posters at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer's (SITC) 35th Virtual Annual Meeting being held from Monday, November 9, 2020 to Saturday, November 14, 2020.
The posters will focus on FS118, F-star's potentially first-in-class, tetravalent bispecific antibody that simultaneously blocks both the LAG-3 and PD-L1 immunosuppressive pathways. FS118 has preclinically and, in preliminary clinical data, demonstrated potent anti-tumor growth activity as well as a highly differentiated mechanism of action when compared to checkpoint monotherapies alone or in combinations.
Abstracts are available on the SITC website and the accompanying posters will be available in the Virtual Poster Hall open from 8:00 am EST on Monday, November 9, until the Virtual Poster Hall closes on December 31, 2020.
