CD27 is a clinically validated drug target. It is a member of the TNF receptor superfamily and plays a critical role in T-cell activation by providing a co-stimulatory signal together with its ligand CD70. CD27 is highly expressed on naïve T cells and also provides a co-stimulatory signal for NK cell activation. Kineta has developed a diverse set of anti-CD27 agonist antibodies. They are fully human monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that demonstrate low nM binding affinity to CD27 in humans. In preclinical studies, Kineta’s selected lead anti-CD27 agonist mAbs induce T cell proliferation, NK activation and secretion of cytokines involved in T cell priming and recruitment, demonstrating the ability to potentiate new anti-tumor responses. Kineta is in the final stage of lead selection and plans to nominate a clinical candidate in mid-2022.
Kineta is a clinical stage biotechnology company with a mission to develop next generation immunotherapies that transform patients’ lives. We have leveraged our expertise in innate immunity to develop first or best-in-class immunotherapies that address the major challenges with current cancer therapy.
