WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Palleon Pharmaceuticals, a company pioneering the field of glyco-immunology to treat cancer and inflammatory diseases, today announced it will present new preclinical data on the company’s lead immuno-oncology program, E-602, at the 36th Annual Meeting of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) in Washington, D.C., from November 10-14, 2021.
Palleon’s poster highlights recent preclinical data from in vitro and in vivo studies of the company’s most advanced therapeutic candidate, E-602 (formerly known as Bi-Sialidase). E-602 is part of the company’s novel cancer immunotherapy platform, EAGLE (Enzyme-Antibody Glycan-Ligand Editing), which utilizes engineered human sialidase to degrade immunosuppressive sialoglycans.
In addition to the poster presentation, Palleon will be hosting a hybrid (live and virtual) scientific symposium at SITC on November 11th featuring Palleon Scientific Co-Founder Carolyn Bertozzi, Ph.D., Scientific Advisor James Paulson, Ph.D., and Chief Medical Officer David Feltquate, M.D., Ph.D. The session will review the most recent state of the science of sialoglycan-mediated immune regulation and its potential relevance for immuno-oncology therapeutics.
