NOXXON Pharma AG
NOXXON’s oncology-focused pipeline breaks the tumor protection barrier and blocks tumor repair by neutralizing chemokines in the tumor micro-environment (TME). NOXXON’s approach works in combination with other forms of treatment to weaken tumor defenses against the immune system and enable greater therapeutic impact.
After NOXXON’s lead program NOX-A12 delivered final top-line data with encouraging overall survival and safety profile from a combination trial with an anti-PD-1 immuno-oncology checkpoint inhibitor in metastatic colorectal and pancreatic cancer patients in September 2020, the company announced in July 2021 its upcoming Phase 2 study to further evaluate safety and efficacy of NOX-A12 in combination with anti-PD-1 and two different chemotherapy regimens as second-line therapy in patients with pancreatic cancer.
The combination of NOX-A12 and radiotherapy has been granted orphan drug status in the US and EU for the treatment of certain brain cancers. An ongoing trial of NOX-A12 in combination with radiotherapy in newly diagnosed brain cancer patients who will not benefit from standard chemotherapy has delivered interim data from the low- and mid-dose cohorts showing consistent tumor reductions. The read-out from the third high-dose cohort is expected in early 2022.
The company’s second clinical-stage asset, NOX-E36 is a TME asset targeting the innate immune system and is planned to go back into the clinic in 2021. NOXXON plans to develop NOX-E36 in patients with solid tumors.
