Sensei Biotherapeutics Presents New Preclinical Data on SNS-103 Targeting ENTPDase1 (CD39) at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2023
BOSTON, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensei Biotherapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNSE), an immuno-oncology company focused on the discovery and development of next-generation therapeutics for cancer patients, today presented new preclinical data on its SNS-103 program aimed at developing a conditionally active, monoclonal antibody program targeting ENTPDase1 (also known as CD39) at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2023.
“CD39 is an important target because it is the rate-limiting enzyme that creates an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment through the production of adenosine. However, it has been difficult to target effectively due to its broad expression on various cells in both tumors and normal tissues,” said Edward van der Horst, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Sensei Biotherapeutics. “The hypothesis driving our program is that a pH-sensitive antibody may inhibit the pro-tumoral activities of CD39 selectively within the tumor microenvironment while avoiding on-target/off-tumor binding and pharmacokinetic issues observed with prior CD39 antibodies.”
Poster presentation titled, “Identification of conditionally active antibodies that selectively block CD39 activity in the acidic tumor microenvironment”
The full poster is available for viewing on Sensei’s corporate website.
