EMB-09 is under clinical development by EpimAb Biotherapeutics and currently in Phase I for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer. According to GlobalData, Phase I drugs for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer have an 84% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase II. GlobalData’s report assesses how EMB-09’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

EMB-09 overview

EMB-09 is under development for the treatment of locally advanced/metastatic solid tumors including melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC), hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), gastric cancer (GC), endometrium cancer (EC), ovarian cancer (OC), renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC), colorectal cancer (CRC). It is administered through intravenous and parenteral route. The therapeutic candidate acts by targeting PD-L1 and OX40. It is a bi-specific monoclonal antibody and being developed based on FIT-Ig (Fabs-In-Tandem Immunoglobulin) technology.

EpimAb Biotherapeutics overview

EpimAb Biotherapeutics (EpimAb) is an independent biopharmaceutical research and development company that develops bispecific antibody therapeutics with a focus on immune-oncology. Its lead product candidate EMB-01, which is in preclinical development, is a bispecific antibody that targets the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and hepatocyte growth factor receptor (cMET). EpimAb harnesses Fabs-In-Tandem Immunoglobulin (FIT-Ig) technology, which integrates the functions of two parental antibodies into one single molecule to develop its product portfolio. The company works in collaboration with Kymab, Innovent Biologics and Zhejiang Teruisi Biopharmaceutical to develop bispecific antibody programs. EpimAb is headquartered in Shanghai, China.
