23andMe, a leading human genetics and biopharmaceutical company with a mission to help people access, understand, and benefit from the human genome, recently announced the first patient dosed in the Phase 2a portion of the 23ME-00610 study. The expansion portion of the study will evaluate the anti-cancer activity of 23ME-00610 in specific tumor indications, and will further characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of 23ME-00610.
23ME-00610 is a high-affinity, fully humanized monoclonal antibody that is designed to bind to CD200R1 and prevent the interaction of CD200R1 with CD200. The CD200–CD200R1 axis is an immunological checkpoint that plays a pivotal role in maintenance of immune tolerance. CD200R1 is an inhibitory receptor expressed on T cells and myeloid cells while CD200, the ligand for CD200R1, is highly expressed on certain tumors. Binding of tumor associated CD200 to CD200R1 leads to immune suppression and decreased immune cell killing of cancer cells. Preclinical data indicate that this mechanism has the potential to restore the ability for both T-cells and myeloid cells to kill cancer cells.
The Phase 1/2a study is an open-label study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and clinical activity of 23ME-00610 in patients with advanced solid malignancies who have progressed on all available standard therapies. Clinical trials registry (clinicaltrials.gov): NCT05199272.
