Nimbus Therapeutics to Present Update on Cbl-b Discovery Program at AACR 2022 Annual Meeting
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nimbus Therapeutics, a clinical-stage company that designs and develops breakthrough medicines through its powerful computational drug discovery engine, today announced that it will present preclinical data from its Casitas B-lineage lymphoma b (Cbl-b) program at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) 2022 Annual Meeting, being held April 8-13, 2022 in New Orleans, LA.
Cbl-b is validated as an immuno-oncology target; the enzyme catalyzes the ubiquitination of substrate proteins to regulate multiple signaling events in a variety of cell types, including immune cells. Nimbus undertook a structure-based drug design approach to identify NTX-801, a Cbl-b inhibitor. In an in vivo PD model, NTX-801 was observed to enhance cytokine responses. In a syngeneic mouse model, NTX-801 demonstrated tumor growth inhibitory activity.
Details of the AACR presentation are as follows:
Abstract Control Number: 4649
Abstract Title: Discovery of NTX-801, a potent Cbl-b inhibitor with antitumor activity in syngeneic models
Session Title: Preclinical Immunotherapy
