Exhibit 99.1Press Release
I-Mab and ABL Bio to Present Preclinical Data for Joint Bispecific
Antibody Program at the 2020 American Association for Cancer
Research Virtual Meeting II
SHANGHAI, China and Gaithersburg, MD., June 12, 2020 (PRNewswire) I-Mab (the Company) (Nasdaq: IMAB), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company committed to the discovery, development and commercialization of novel biologics, will be presenting preclinical data on a newly developed, novel asset TJ-CD4B, at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Virtual Annual Meeting II on June 22-24, 2020.
TJ-CD4B, also known as ABL111, is a Claudin 18.2 and 4-1BB bispecific antibody jointly developed with South Korea-based ABL Bio, Inc. (Kosdaq: 298380, hereafter ABL). TJ-CD4B is from I-Mabs emerging bispecific antibody portfolio designed to create novel drug molecules that synergize two pathways for better clinical efficacy. By linking with an antibody against Claudin 18.2, a gastric- and pancreatic-specific cancer antigen, TJ-CD4B/ABL111 is uniquely structured to supercharge T cells in a Claudin 18.2-dependent manner, enhancing anti-tumor immunity while potentially minimizing toxicity.
The pre-clinical validation of TJ-CD4B/ABL111 to be presented at AACR signifies the overall progress of I-Mabs bispecific antibody portfolio, reflecting Companys discovery and CMC capabilities to engineer novel molecules with combined target specificities. I-Mab plans to advance more novel bispecific antibodies towards clinical development stage, following the lead of TJ-CD4B/ABL111.
The poster presentation (Abstract #5644) is available for on-demand viewing starting 9:00am EDT, 22 June, and will remain for viewing by registered attendees for at least three months after the virtual meeting.
The abstract is available online at:
