TH1902 anti-tumor post-treatment effect persists longer than with docetaxel aloneMONTREAL, April 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Theratechnologies Inc. (Theratechnologies) (TSX: TH) (NASDAQ: THTX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapies, today announced that new in vivo preclinical data were presented at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). These data demonstrated sustained tumor regression, better anti-tumor activity and tolerability with TH1902 compared to docetaxel alone in all cancer types studied, namely melanoma, pancreatic, ovarian, endometrial, colorectal and triple-negative breast cancers. The anti-tumor effect of TH1902 persisted longer post-treatment than with docetaxel alone. TH1902 is the Company’s lead investigational peptide-drug conjugate (PDC) derived from its SORT1+ Technology™. “The FDA fast-track designation for TH1902 was supported by the data presented today. This designation is a significant recognition of our SORT1+ Technology™ as very few investigational therapies receive fast track designation based on preclinical data. It strongly endorses TH1902 as a potentially new and innovative treatment for all patients with sortilin positive (SORT1+) solid tumors that are refractory to standard therapy. The Phase 1 clinical trial is now underway and we look forward to advancing TH1902 through further stages of its development,” said Dr. Christian Marsolais, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Theratechnologies. AACR Poster #1313 – TH1902, a docetaxel peptide-drug conjugate, shows pre-clinical efficacy in several SORT1+ cancersHighlights of the poster include new data on TH1902 in melanoma, where the sortilin receptor is expressed in over 90% of cases. TH1902 was associated with superior anti-tumor effect and sustained post-treatment effect compared to docetaxel alone. Other highlights of this poster include better and sustained anti-tumor effect in pancreatic tumors, where sortilin is expressed in 30% to 50% of cases and in triple-negative breast cancer, where sortilin is expressed in almost 60% of cases. Treatment effect was also observed with TH1902 in colorectal cancer, which is encouraging as docetaxel is not recognized as standard of care due to lack of response in this cancer. The positive effect of TH1902 on tumor regression was also observed in these cancer types at an equimolar quarter dose compared to docetaxel alone. Only registered attendees can access the poster. AACR Poster #1439 – Increasing potency of anticancer drugs through SORT1+ Technology™: A new targeted approach for treatment of ovarian and endometrial cancers New data presented in this poster demonstrated sustained inhibition of ovarian and endometrial cancers with TH1902 at equimolar doses of docetaxel alone. Specifically, TH1902 showed improved anti-tumor activity in endometrial cancer at an equimolar quarter doses compared to docetaxel alone. Sortilin is expressed in over 90% of ovarian and endometrial cancers, making it an excellent target for drug development. Ovarian and endometrial cancers have poor prognosis and survival outcomes. Sortilin expression increases as a function of tumor grade (I to IV) and is associated with poor prognosis and decreased survival in different cancers. Only registered attendees can access the poster. Absence of neutropenia with TH1902Neutropenia was absent after six consecutive treatments with TH1902 at an equivalent dose of the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of docetaxel, whereas a single treatment of docetaxel strongly reduced neutrophil counts. Neutropenia increases susceptibility to develop infections. Several cancer treatments are known to cause neutropenia and require on and off treatment cycles to avoid the potentially severe consequences of infections associated with the onset of neutropenia. Phase 1 clinical trial of TH1902The Phase 1 dose-escalating study is evaluating the safety, pharmacokinetics, maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and preliminary anti-tumor activity of TH1902 administered once every three weeks in patients with advanced solid tumors refractory to available anti-cancer therapies. Once the MTD is determined, it is planned that a total of 40 additional patients will be enrolled to evaluate the potential anti-tumor activity of TH1902 in patients with endometrial, ovarian, colorectal, pancreatic and triple negative breast cancers. The detailed Phase 1 study protocol is available at ClinicalTrials.gov under the identifier number: NCT04706962. About TH1902TH1902 combines Theratechnologies’ proprietary peptide to docetaxel. This PDC is the lead candidate derived from Theratechnologies’ SORT1+ Technology™ in oncology. The Canadian Cancer Society and the Government of Quebec, through the Consortium Québécois sur la découverte du médicament (CQDM), will contribute a total of 1.4 million dollars towards some of the research currently being conducted for the development of Theratechnologies’ targeted oncology platform at the molecular oncology laboratory of Dr Borhane Annabi at the Université du Québec in Montréal (UQAM). About SORT1+ Technology™ Theratechnologies has developed a peptide which specifically targets sortilin (SORT1) receptors. SORT1 is expressed in ovarian, triple negative breast, skin, lung, colorectal and pancreatic cancers, among others. SORT1 plays a significant role in protein internalization, sorting and trafficking, making it an attractive target for drug development. Commercially available anticancer drugs, like docetaxel, doxorubicin or tyrosine kinase inhibitors are conjugated to Theratechnologies’ investigational novel peptide to specifically target sortilin receptors. This could potentially improve the efficacy and safety of those agents. About Theratechnologies Theratechnologies (TSX: TH) (NASDAQ: THTX) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapies addressing unmet medical needs.

(Bloomberg) -- Surging cases in the Midwest helped push the number of daily U.S. infections to their highest in more than two weeks as the nation’s vaccination push gathers pace. European Union officials said the bloc is overcoming its vaccine supply problem and may have 70% of adults fully inoculated before the end of July, raising the prospect of an almost normal tourism season. Vaccines are in shorter supply in India, as the world’s second most populous country confronts a second wave. Thailand’s infection rate reached the highest since February and Japan is imposing restrictions in Tokyo and other cities to rein in the rapid spread of the virus. Key Developments:Global Tracker: Cases pass 134.7 million; deaths 2.91 millionVaccine Tracker: More than 748 million shots given worldwideIndia’s hospitals swamped by second virus wave as shots run lowWHO chief says political will is missing for equitable vaccinationU.K. urges mourners not to gather after death of Prince PhilipEurope finds some rare successes in its struggle to defeat CovidChina’s bid to ramp up vaccinations hindered by supply shortagesSubscribe to a daily update on the virus from Bloomberg’s Prognosis team here. Click CVID on the terminal for global data on cases and deaths.U.S. Cases Continue to Accelerate (8 a.m. NY)The U.S. added almost 81,000 new cases Friday as the virus spreads fast in pockets around the nation, especially in the Midwest, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University and Bloomberg. The seven-day average has risen for five consecutive weeks. Another 962 deaths were reported Friday, down for the second day, the data show, amid a general decline in fatalities. The U.S. recorded 4 million vaccine doses on Friday, as the pace picked up again after the Easter and Passover holidays, according to the Bloomberg Vaccine Tracker. Italy Industry Lobby Cuts Growth Forecast Due to Virus Resurgence (7:53 a.m. NY)Italy’s biggest industrial lobby group cut its forecast for economic growth after a surge in infections in the country earlier this year.Confindustria now sees Italy’s economic growth at 4.1% this year, 0.7 percentage points below its October forecast, after the health crisis led to a weaker than expected performance in the final quarter of 2020 and first quarter of 2021. It said the new forecast hinges on progress in vaccinations in Italy and the rest of Europe. Norwegian Study Links Blood Clots to AstraZeneca Jab (6:53 a.m. NY)A Norwegian study into blood clots and abnormally low levels of platelets in five people who were given the AstraZeneca vaccine for Covid-19 has found that their condition was a vaccine-induced syndrome, according to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine.“By providing a link between thrombosis and the immune system, these results strengthen the view that vaccination may have triggered the syndrome,” the article cited the study as saying.Denmark and Norway are avoiding use of the Astra vaccine even though it’s been approved for use there, saying they need more time to review the risks. Sweden and Finland are only offering it to people over the age of 65.Europe Could Beat U.K. in Vaccination Target: Brussels (5:32 p.m. HK)Europe could have fully vaccinated 70% of adults before the U.K. reaches its own target of one dose for all over-18s by the end of July, Thierry Breton, the European commissioner leading Brussels’ vaccine task force, said in an interview with the Guardian.Europe was expecting 360 million doses from five manufacturers in the second quarter, with European factories set to produce 200 million shots a month by September for an overall capacity of 2 to 3 billion by year end. The “extremely rapid” increase in European production capacity should allow the EU’s 27 nations to compensate for first-quarter shortfalls and allow “an almost normal tourist season”, Breton said.Airline Body Wants U.K. to Probe Travel Test Pricing (5:05 p.m. HK)Global airline body IATA called on the U.K. Competition and Markets Authority to launch an inquiry into pricing of Covid-19 tests for travel, as separate research showed travelers had to pay twice as much for the PCR tests in Britain as they do in much of Europe, the Guardian reported on Sunday.While the cheapest U.K. pre-departure PCR tests are available for 60 pounds ($82) -- the subsidized rate for passengers at Gatwick Airport -- most travelers are being charged an average of 128 pounds, more than double the price for much of Europe, according to research from the Association of British Travel Agents and the Airport Operators Association.Jet2, one of the biggest tour operators in the U.K., postponed all holidays until June 23 citing lack of clarity from the government, the Guardian reported in a separate story. The tour operator said “not knowing when we can start to fly and where we can fly to” led to suspension of flights and holidays.EU’s Michel Sees Surge in Vaccinations After Early Stumbles (4:43 p.m. HK)European Council President Charles Michel expects the region to soon move past the shortfall in vaccine availability, and become a leading producer, he said in an interview with a range of newspapers including Germany’s Handelsblatt. Output will continue to grow in the coming weeks and Europe may even become the world’s biggest maker of inoculations.Germany reported 23,945 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, marking the third straight day of declines. Deaths fell to 246, down from 294 a day earlier.Russian Cases Are Still Falling, With Number of Deaths Stable (4:09 p.m. HK)Russia reported 8,704 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, down from the 9,150 reported a day earlier as the caseload continues to stabilize. Authorities reported 402 deaths yesterday from the virus, unchanged from the previous day.Pakistan Approves Sinovac Shot for Emergency Use (3:35 p.m. HK)Pakistan’s drug regulator approved Sinovac Biotech Ltd.’s vaccine for emergency use, Xinhua News Agency reported, citing the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan. The move adds a third Chinese vaccine to Pakistan’s arsenal as the country faces a new wave on infections. Pakistan previously approved shots developed by Sinopharm and CanSino Biologics Inc.Tokyo Cases Top 500 Again (2:25 p.m. HK)Tokyo reported 570 additional infections on Saturday, topping 500 for a fourth straight day, and the daily number of virus cases in Osaka hit a record of 918, according to Kyodo News. Japan on Friday said it will reimpose restrictions in Tokyo, Kyoto and Okinawa, aiming to rein in a rapid spread of the coronavirus in those areas three weeks after ending a state of emergency in the capital.Thailand Sees Most Cases Since Early February (12:57 p.m. HK)Thailand reported 789 new cases, the highest since Feb. 4, bringing the total to 31,658 infections, according to the Health Ministry. Most cases are linked to entertainment venue clusters in the Thai capital. One new death was reported Saturday, raising the total to 97.India’s Hospitals Swamped by Second Wave (12:34 p.m. HK)India is facing an escalating health crisis, with its second wave of virus infections hitting record highs, overwhelming hospitals around the country as supplies of intensive care beds and vital drugs come under pressure.Across the South Asian nation, from the wealthiest and also the worst-hit state of Maharashtra to its most populous, Uttar Pradesh, reports are emerging of hospital beds running short and immunization centers turning away people as they run out of vaccines. India reported more than 145,000 new infections Saturday, and with over 13 million virus cases lags behind only the U.S. and Brazil.U.K. Urges Mourners Not to Gather (12:29 p.m. HK)U.K. officials urged people not to gather or lay flowers following the death of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, a sign of how longstanding traditions will have to be put aside due to the pandemic. Well-wishers congregated outside Buckingham Palace and laid floral tributes on Friday, following the news of the Duke of Edinburgh’s passing at Windsor Castle, west of London, at the age of 99.China Approves Third Sinopharm Shot for Trial (4:40 p.m. HK)China has approved the third vaccine from Sinopharm Group Co. to start clinical trials, the company said. The green light to begin testing comes after two inactivated vaccines from Sinopharm were approved and widely used both at home and in developing countries.China’s ambitious effort to vaccinate 560 million people -- 40% of its population -- by the end of June is nonetheless running into a supply shortage, forcing authorities to extend the intervals between doses and leaving some people unable to book second shots. China had administered 161.1 million doses of Covid vaccines as of Friday, the National Health Commission said in a statement.South Korea’s Moon Calls Meeting on Virus (11:32 a.m. HK)South Korean President Moon Jae-in will hold an urgent meeting on Monday with the country’s top health officials to review the response to the pandemic and discuss vaccine supplies, Yonhap News reported Saturday, citing a presidential spokesman.Health authorities warned this week that the country is in the early stage of another wave of infections. They also said they may consider stricter social distancing measures and curtail some business activities if the weekly average of cases rises. South Korea confirmed 677 more infections on Saturday.CureVac Could Win EU Shot Approval in May (10:04 a.m. HK)CureVac NV could win European Union approval for its vaccine as early as May, sooner than expected, a German newspaper cited a company spokesman as saying.“We’re already very far advanced in the third phase of clinical trials and are awaiting data for the final application package,” CureVac spokesman Thorsten Schueller told Augsburger Allgemeine. “We hope the approval will come in May or June.”CureVac’s boosters include Elon Musk, who deleted a Twitter post on Friday saying that the biotech sounded to be “a few months away from regulatory approval.”Covid Hampers St. Vincent Evacuation (7:33 a.m. HK)Covid-19 is hampering efforts to evacuate people from the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent, where the La Soufriere volcano began erupting Friday morning.St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said efforts to move an estimated 20,000 residents who live near the volcano were underway. But the pandemic is causing delays. Hotels that are being turned into refugee centers are asking that people be vaccinated, a request that Gonsalves said was “not unreasonable.”WHO Chief: Political Will Missing for Equitable Vaccination (12:06 a.m. HK)A lack of political will and weak global solidarity are the “mother of all bottlenecks” to ensuring an equitable distribution of Covid-19 vaccines to low-income countries, World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Study Confirms F-star’s Bispecific Antibody Tetravalency is the Most Efficient Way to Induce Receptor Clustering and ActivationCAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- F-star Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSTX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to developing next generation bispecific immunotherapies to transform the lives of patients with cancer, today announces that preclinical data from FS222, a potentially best-in-class tetravalent bispecific antibody targeting both CD137 and PD-L1 will be presented in a poster at the 2021 American Academy of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting, taking place virtually from April 10-15 and May 17-21. Poster #1864, entitled ‘FS222, a Tetravalent Bispecific Antibody Targeting CD137 and PD-L1, is Designed for Optimal CD137 Interactions Resulting in Potent T cell Activation Without Toxicity’ will be available via on-demand viewing starting today, April 10, at 8:30 a.m. ET. FS222 targets PD-L1, the immune checkpoint protein that regulates the balance of activated T cells in the immune system and is overexpressed on many solid tumors and CD137, a co-stimulatory molecule from the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily (TNFRSF), which is widely known to be upregulated on tumor-reactive CD8+ T cells or “killer T cells”. Currently, only a minority of patients have a long-lasting response to monotherapies that block the PD-(L)1 pathway. Neil Brewis, Chief Scientific Officer at F-star Therapeutics, said: “We are encouraged by the results of these latest preclinical studies of FS222, our tetravalent bispecific antibody targeting PD-L1 and CD137. This work further demonstrates that FS222’s tetravalent binding mechanism is the most efficient and effective format for bispecific antibodies. The early onset of activity and T cell proliferation gives us confidence that FS222 will allow for a wide range of treatment options.” FS222 was designed to be a potent human CD137/PD-L1 tetravalent conditional agonist with a unique combination of high affinity PD-L1 binding, and moderate affinity, but with high avidity, binding to CD137 on activated T cells to result in optimal receptor clustering. Previously, FS222 has been shown to exhibit a favorable safety profile in preclinical safety studies. Tetravalent binding by FS222 demonstrated optimal activity in multiple preclinical pharmacology studies, outperforming classic heterodimeric bispecific antibodies. These data showed that there was no evidence of a hook effect, or bell-shaped dose response curve, in vitro, and coupled with FS222’s favorable safety profile, presents a potentially broad and differentiated therapeutic window. A murine surrogate mAb2 for FS222 had peripheral immunopharmacology, as shown by CD8+ T cell proliferation, at high dose levels, mirroring the in vitro data, whereby the tetravalent FS222 surrogate mAb2 outperforms other lower valency formats. In January 2021, F-star announced that the first patient had been dosed in a Phase 1 clinical trial of FS222, a multicenter, open-label, first-in-human trial to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and early signs of efficacy of FS222 in adult patients diagnosed with advanced malignancies. The adaptive study design will allow for the early exploration of clinical activity of FS222 in a range of selected solid tumors that will guide future targeted clinical development.

RADNOR, Pa., April 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP announces that a securities fraud class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX) (“Ebix”) on behalf of those who purchased or acquired Ebix securities between November 9, 2020 and February 19, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who purchased or acquired Ebix securities during the Class Period may, no later than April 23, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class. For additional information or to learn how to participate in this litigation please contact Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP: James Maro, Esq. (484) 270-1453 or Adrienne Bell, Esq. (484) 270-1435; toll free at (844) 887-9500; via e-mail at email@example.com; or click https://www.ktmc.com/ebix-inc-securities-class-action-lawsuit?utm_source=PR&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=ebix Ebix supplies infrastructure exchanges to the insurance, financial, travel, cash remittances, and healthcare industries. The Class Period commences on November 9, 2020, when Ebix filed its quarterly report for the period ended September 30, 2020 on a Form 10-Q with the SEC, stating in relevant part that the “Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our ‘disclosure controls and procedures’ . . . [and] have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures are effective.” On February 19, 2021, after the market closed, Ebix revealed that its independent auditor, RSM US LLP (“RSM”), resigned “as a result of being unable, despite repeated inquiries, to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence that would allow it to evaluate the business purpose of significant unusual transactions that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2020” related to Ebix’s gift card business in India. RSM also stated that there was a material weakness related to Ebix’s failure to design controls “over the gift or prepaid card revenue transaction cycle sufficient to prevent or detect a material misstatement.” Additionally, Ebix and RSM disagreed over the accounting treatment of $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel in December 2020. Following this news, Ebix’s share price fell $20.24, or approximately 40%, to close at $30.50 on February 22, 2021. The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants failed to disclose to investors that: (1) there was insufficient audit evidence to determine the business purpose of certain significant unusual transactions in Ebix’s gift card business in India during the fourth quarter of 2020; (2) there was a material weakness in Ebix’s internal control over the gift or prepaid revenue transaction cycle; (3) Ebix’s independent auditor, RSM, was reasonably likely to resign over disagreements with Ebix regarding $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, the defendants’ positive statements about Ebix’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. Ebix investors may, no later than April 23, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision of whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.

Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP is a driving force behind corporate governance reform, and has recovered billions of dollars on behalf of institutional and individual investors from the United States and around the world.
