Scientists at Surface Oncology Inc. described data from a study that aimed to evaluate the role of IL-27, a heterodimeric cytokine that plays a role in controlling the intensity and duration of immune system responses, in cancer therapy resistance.
Researchers from Sun Yat-sen University, Southern Medical University and Gannan Medical University reported the discovery of novel quinazoline-based KRAS G12C inhibitors as potential anticancer agents.
Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) is composed of several subunits, such as EZH2, EED and SUZ12, and is a regulator of cell proliferation and development. Targeting the allosteric subunit EED may be a new approach for fully inhibiting PRC2 complex activity and addressing the limitations of EZH2 inhibition.
GPC3 is an oncofetal antigen highly expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) but minimally expressed in adult normal tissues, except the placenta. Cytovia Therapeutics Inc. has presented preclinical data on CYT-303, a bispecific natural killer (NK) engager targeting NK cell-activating receptor NKp46 and GPC3 expressed in tumor cells.
Researchers from Immatics Biotechnologies GmbH have developed bispecific T-cell engaging receptor (TCER) molecules consisting of an affinity maturated TCR, a humanized T cell-recruiting antibody and an Fc-part conferring half-life extension and favorable stability characteristics.
