Immunome Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

EXTON, Pa. –
Immunome, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMNM), a biopharmaceutical company that utilizes its human memory B cell platform to discover and develop first-in-class antibody therapeutics, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 and provided a corporate update.

“We received FDA clearance to proceed with our Phase 1b clinical trial for our three-antibody cocktail, IMM-BCP-01, for the treatment of COVID-19 and patient recruitment efforts are underway. Based on the preclinical data, we believe this therapy can address the ongoing need for a substantial and effective COVID-19 antibody treatment, especially in light of the continued emergence of new variants,” stated Purnanand Sarma, Ph.D., President and CEO of Immunome. “Additionally, we continue to progress IMM-ONC-01, our antibody treatment targeting IL-38, an immune modulator that appears to potently suppress innate immune response, especially in the context of cancer. IL-38 is overexpressed in multiple tumor types with significant unmet need. We are targeting an IND submission in the second half of 2022 and look forward to providing updates as they arise.”

First Quarter and Subsequent Highlights

  • FDA Lifts Clinical Hold on Immunome’s IMM-BCP-01 IND Application for the Treatment of COVID-19. In March 2022, Immunome announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has lifted the clinical hold on its Investigational New Drug (IND) application for its antibody cocktail (IMM-BCP-01), for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
  • In Vitro Efficacy of IMM-BCP-01 Against SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Variant in Live Virus Testing. In February 2022, Immunome announced that IMM-BCP-01 demonstrated effective neutralization of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in in vitro testing. The combination of two antibodies in Immunome’s antibody cocktail, IMM20253/IMM20184, demonstrated neutralization of the Omicron variant within 3.5-fold potency compared to a preclinical version of sotrovimab in a head-to-head test using live virus samples.
