London, June 23, 2020 – Epsilogen, a global leader in the development of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to treat cancer, announced today that it will host a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) webinar for the investment community on its IgE platform on Monday, June 29, 2020 at 11am ET (4pm BST).
Epsilogen’s lead product candidate, MOv18 IgE, is in a Phase I clinical trial in folate receptor alpha positive cancer patients. This is the world’s first IgE drug to enter clinical trials. Interim data show that MOv18 IgE has an acceptable safety profile and a preliminary efficacy signal was also seen. Epsilogen has also developed the IGEG™ platform of hybrid IgE/IgG antibodies which combine the functionality of IgE and IgG antibodies into a single molecule.
The webinar will feature presentations by KOLs Bristi Basu, MD, University of Cambridge, and James Spicer, MD, King’s College London, who have together played a key role in advancing development of MOv18 IgE. Dr. Basu’s presentation will include highlights of the interim data from the ongoing Phase 1 clinical study of MOv18 IgE in ovarian cancer that were presented at the recent AACR Virtual Annual Meeting I.
The Epsilogen management team, led by Tim Wilson PhD, will discuss the company’s proprietary IgE technology platforms and will outline plans to further develop MOv18 IgE and other therapeutic candidates.
Drs. Basu and Spicer, as well as members of the Epsilogen management team, will be available for questions are the conclusion of the call.
