AUSTIN, TX and DURHAM, NC, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shattuck Labs, Inc. (Shattuck) (NASDAQ: STTK), a clinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering the development of bi-functional fusion proteins as a new class of biologic medicine for the treatment of patients with cancer and autoimmune disease, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 and provided recent business highlights.
“We are now completing the monotherapy dose-escalation study for SL-172154 in ovarian cancer patients and are focused on the initiation and rapid clinical execution of multiple combination studies in both hematologic and solid tumors. This expansion is a critical step in establishing SL-172154 as both a first- and best-in-class CD47 inhibitor and CD40 agonist, and we continue to expect SL-172154 to differentiate from other CD47 inhibitors and CD40 agonists in terms of safety, pharmacodynamic activity, and efficacy in combinations. The next 18 months are shaping up to be a defining period for establishing CD47 inhibition as a key macrophage checkpoint in multiple indications, and we look forward to providing initial combination data from SL-172154 in the first half of 2023,” said Taylor Schreiber, M.D., Ph.D., and Chief Executive Officer of Shattuck.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results
2022 Financial Guidance
Shattuck believes its cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments will be sufficient to fund its operations into the second half of 2024, beyond results from its Phase 1 clinical trials of SL-172154 and SL-279252. This cash runway guidance is based on the Company’s current operational plans and excludes any additional funding that may be received or business development or additional clinical development activities that may be undertaken.
SL-172154 (SIRPa-Fc-CD40L) is an investigational ARC® fusion protein designed to simultaneously inhibit the CD47/SIRPa checkpoint interaction and activate the CD40 costimulatory receptor to bolster an anti-tumor immune response in patients with advanced cancer. Two Phase 1 clinical trials are ongoing, the first for patients with advanced and platinum resistant ovarian cancer (NCT04406623) and the second for patients with AML and HR-MDS (NCT05275439).
SL-279252 (PD1-Fc-OX40L) is an investigational ARC® fusion protein designed to simultaneously inhibit the PD-1/PD-L1 interaction and activate the OX40 receptor in patients with advanced cancers. A Phase 1 trial in patients with solid tumors and lymphoma is ongoing (NCT03894618).
