Sorrento Therapeutics Presents Preclinical Data of its Fully Human Antibody Programs Targeting Anti-PD-L1 and Anti-PD-1 at the 8th Annual Next Generation Protein Therapeutics Summit
Date:6/24/2013

SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: SRNE; Sorrento) announced today that preclinical data of its therapeutic fully human anti-PD-L1 and anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) will be presented at the IBC 8th Annual Next Generation Protein Therapeutics Summit, June 26 - 28 in San Diego.

In recent clinical studies,[1] immunomodulatory anti-PD-1 and anti-PD-L1 antibodies have shown great promise for the treatment of solid tumors. By blocking immunosuppressive signals on cancer cells directed against infiltrating T cells, the patients' anti-tumor immune response might be rejuvenated.

"We believe these preclinical data are the first demonstration of potent immunomodulatory anti-PD-L1 and anti-PD-1 antibodies obtained from a fully human antibody library rather than mouse-based technologies," said Henry Ji, Ph.D., Sorrento's President and CEO. "Overall, these data illustrate the potential of Sorrento's G-MAB® library technology for discovery and development of fully human therapeutic antibodies against clinically valuable drug targets,"

The poster presentation titled "Human anti-PD-L1 and anti-PD-1 mAbs Identified from an Antibody Library Exhibit Potent Immune Cell Activation" is authored by J. Dixon Gray, Heyue Zhou, Edwige Gros, Kimberly Johnson, Gunnar F. Kaufmann, and Randy Gastwirt.
