CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nimbus Therapeutics, a biotechnology company designing breakthrough medicines through structure-based drug discovery and development, today announced the presentation of new data on the company’s novel hematopoietic progenitor kinase 1 (HPK1) inhibitors at upcoming scientific conferences.

At the 32nd EORTC-NCI-AACR Symposium, from October 24-25, 2020, Nimbus will present new in vivo data, including target engagement, tumor growth inhibition, and pharmacodynamics in two mouse syngeneic tumor models (CT26 and B16/F10).

Further, at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer’s (SITC) 35th Anniversary Annual Meeting, from November 9-14, 2020, Nimbus will present new data on in vitro pharmacology and mechanism of action of the HPK1 inhibitors, including effects on T cells, B cells, dendritic cells and antigen presentation.

“Building on the data we presented at AACR earlier this year, we’re pleased to share these new results which provide further support for the anti-tumor immune activity of our small-molecule HPK1 inhibitors,” said Peter Tummino, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Nimbus. “We are progressing towards initiation of IND-enabling studies in the near future, with plans to embark upon first-in-human studies of this novel therapeutic in 2021.”
