Dr. Cohen-Dayag continued, “ With respect to our multiple internal immuno-oncology programs, we continue to advance CGEN-15029 as the highest priority mAb program, and as such, have allocated additional resources to this program to advance it to clinical trials. This is a very exciting time for the Company, as we advance our first internal immuno-oncology program toward IND-enabling activities. With respect to programs addressing antibody drug conjugate therapy, we have established a diversified portfolio of target candidates for this promising mode of cancer therapy, and recently disclosed data suggesting broad first-in-class clinical opportunities for CGEN-15027 antibodies in the treatment of multiple solid tumor types.”
