PiiONEER™ Platform is aimed at developing fully human antibodies to address the major mechanisms of cancer immune resistance including immuno-suppression, exhausted T cells and poor tumor immunogenicit. Utilization of the PiiONEER™ Platform is designed to result in novel, well-characterized innate immuno-oncology lead antibody therapeutics that can be efficiently advanced into formal investigational new drug (IND)-enabling and clinical studies.
KVA12123 (formerly referred to as KVA12.1) is expected to be a differentiated VISTA blocking immunotherapy to address the problem of immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment. It is a fully human engineered IgG1 monoclonal antibody that was designed to bind to VISTA through a unique epitope. KVA12123 may be an effective immunotherapy for many types of cancer including NSCLC (lung), colorectal, renal cell carcinoma, head and neck, and ovarian. These initial target indications represent a significant unmet medical need with a large worldwide commercial opportunity for KVA12123.
