BOTHELL, Wash. – Immunome, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMNM), a biotechnology company focused on developing first-in-class and best-in-class targeted cancer therapies, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024, and provided a business update.

“Immunome continues to build momentum. We have completed the integration of AL102 and are executing activities necessary for regulatory submissions,” said Clay B. Siegall, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have also completed the integration of IM-1021 and are advancing that program and IM-3050 towards clinical trials.”

Dr. Siegall continued, “In addition, we are working internally to design and develop additional next-generation ADC technology. Those efforts are complemented by our ongoing business development efforts, which seek to identify and procure high-quality technologies and clinical programs. Both our internal and external efforts are focused on expanding Immunome’s pipeline with additional programs that have first-in-class or best-in-class potential and can improve the lives of cancer patients.”

Pipeline Highlights

The purchase of AL101 and AL102 from Ayala Pharmaceuticals closed on March 25, 2024. Full enrollment for the Phase 3 RINGSIDE Part B study of AL102 for the treatment of desmoid tumors was completed in February 2024. Immunome expects to report topline data for RINGSIDE Part B in the second half of 2025. In parallel, Immunome continues to perform additional manufacturing and pharmacology work required to support a new drug application filing for AL102.

Immunome anticipates submitting INDs for two preclinical candidates in the first quarter of 2025: IM-1021, a ROR1 ADC, and IM-3050, a FAP-targeted RLT.
