In three posters at the SITC conference, Curis will present evidence supporting the presence of high VISTA expression on tumor cells, preclinical data supporting VISTA's ability to independently suppress T cell responses, and Phase 1 clinical trial data of CA-170 in patients with advanced tumors and lymphomas. In addition, Curis collaborator Aurigene will present a poster detailing key findings from its ongoing Phase 2 trial of CA-170 in patients with advanced solid tumors and Hodgkin lymphoma who are immunotherapy treatment-naïve.
