About Apeiron (as of September 2011):

Apeiron is a privately financed biotech based in Vienna, Austria. Apeiron focuses on biological and immunological treatments against cancer and related conditions. Including the recently closed licence agreement for the phase III project Mab ch14.18/CHO (APN311), Apeiron's project portfolio consists of five projects under clinical evaluation, and four preclinical projects. Clinical projects include the immunocytokine hu14.18-IL2 (APN301) that is about to enter a phase II (for certain neuroblastoma patients) shortly and is also being clinically tested against melanoma. Also in clinical stage is a liposomal formulation of recombinant human Superoxide Dismutase (APN201) to prevent or treat skin damage due to radiation treatment in cancer. A further clinical project, recombinant human Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2 (APN01), was licensed to GlaxoSmithKline early 2010. It is expected to commence a phase II study for the treatment of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in the near future and has considerable potential in other disease areas. Apeiron is operational since 2006 and employs approx. 25 people.

About APN301:

APN301 (hu14.18-IL2) is a recombinant fusion protein that consists of the humanized 14.18 monoclonal antibody, which recognizes the GD2 disialoganglioside, strongly expressed on virtually all cases of human neuroblastoma, as well as on several other human cancer types (including melanoma, small cell lung carcinoma, osteosarcoma, and soft-tissue sarcoma), linked genetically to human recombinant interleukin-2 (IL2) lymphokine. IL2 has been tested extensively in clinical cancer trials and is approved as an immune activator with documented anti-tumor effects in certain cancers (melanoma and renal cell cancer).

In patients, hu14.18-IL2 localizes to GD2-po
