Indaptus Therapeutics Announces FDA Clearance of Investigational New Drug Application to Initiate Phase 1 Clinical Trial of Decoy20 in Solid Tumors
This clinical trial is expected to commence in 2H 2022. CEO Jeffrey Meckler said that they are delighted to start their first in-person trial of Decoy20 since there is still a considerable unmet medical need for advanced solid tumors patients. He added that this is a major milestone for the company, which brings it closer to its target of showing the use of antigen-agnostic and multi-targeted, systemic immunotherapy, which activates adaptive and innate anti-tumor immune responses.
The study is a first phase open-label dose expansion and escalation study assessing the tolerability, safety, and initial efficacy of Decoy20 in advanced solid tumor patients. Meckler said they are looking forward to showing Decoy20’s safety profile and developing a novel therapy for solid tumors. So in the coming weeks, investors should watch INDP.
“We are excited to begin our first-in-human study of Decoy20, as there is still a significant unmet medical need for patients with advanced solid tumors. This is an important milestone for Indaptus, which brings us one step closer to our goal of demonstrating the utility of a multi-targeted and antigen-agnostic, systemic immunotherapy that primes and activates both innate and adaptive anti-tumor immune responses,” said Jeffrey Meckler, Chief Executive Officer of Indaptus.
