Bolt Biotherapeutics Doses First Patient with BDC-1001 in Combination with OPDIVO® (nivolumab) in Ongoing Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial for the Treatment of HER2-Expressing Solid Tumors
Excerpt from the Press Release:
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bolt Biotherapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BOLT), a clinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering a new class of immuno-oncology agents that combine the targeting precision of antibodies with the power of both the innate and adaptive immune systems, today announced that the first patient has been dosed in a new combination arm of the ongoing multi-center, multi-dose Phase 1/2 clinical trial of BDC-1001. This arm is evaluating BDC-1001 in combination with Bristol Myers Squibb’s PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor OPDIVO® (nivolumab). In parallel, Bolt continues to advance the single-agent portion of the study, following the presentation of interim dose-escalation data at the European Society of Medical Oncology Immuno-Oncology (ESMO I-O) Congress 2021. BDC-1001 is a HER2-targeting Boltbody™ immune-stimulating antibody conjugate (ISAC) (trastuzumab biosimilar conjugated to a toll-like receptor 7 and 8 agonist) in development for the treatment of patients with HER2-expressing solid tumors.
“We are excited to evaluate BDC-1001 in combination with nivolumab, a leading PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor. Pairing BDC-1001’s mechanism of action with the checkpoint inhibitor approach has the potential to yield a stronger, targeted modulation of the immune system. Initial safety and early efficacy findings reported from the ongoing monotherapy arm of the Phase 1/2 clinical trial make BDC-1001 a potentially promising candidate for the treatment of patients with HER2-expressing solid tumors,” said Edith A. Perez, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Bolt Biotherapeutics. “In the early clinical development of BDC-1001, our strategy is to follow the science, elucidating how this novel approach to engaging a patient’s immune system can eliminate tumors not addressed by currently available therapies. We look forward to investigating BDC-1001 in this first combination arm as we also continue investigation of its single-agent activity.”
Bristol Myers Squibb will provide Opdivo for the combination dose escalation and combination dose expansion portions of the trial. Bolt Biotherapeutics is the study sponsor and will be responsible for costs associated with the trial execution.
