HalioDx to Characterize the Immune Contexture of Patients Enrolled in ImCheck’s EVICTION Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial
May 19, 2020
HalioDx, the immuno-oncology diagnostic company, announced a collaboration with ImCheck Therapeutics, a biotech company developing a portfolio of novel immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases. HalioDx will work with ImCheck to generate tumor immune contexture information, which is determined by the density, composition, functional state and organization of immune infiltration into the tumor, for patients enrolled in EVICTION, the first-in-human clinical trial of ICT01. ICT01 is a humanized monoclonal antibody that activates γ9δ2 T cells, part of the innate immune system that is responsible for immunosurveillance for malignancy and infection, by targeting BTN3A, a unique target expressed in several solid and hematologic tumors.
