Trubion Presents Preclinical Data on Its SCORPION(TM) Multispecific Therapeutics at the 2009 American Association of Cancer Research Annual Meeting
Date:4/22/2009

SEATTLE, April 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trubion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRBN) announced today presentation of preclinical data regarding its SCORPION(TM) multispecific therapeutic technology at the 100th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) in Denver. The data presented demonstrated the selectivity and high potency of the bispecific CD79BxDR SCORPION molecule, its differentiation from monospecific approaches, and its potential as a therapeutic for B-cell depletion, particularly in diseases refractory to CD20-targeted therapies.

CD79BxDR SCORPION molecule: a single-chain, bispecific immunotherapeutic with potent in vitro activity against B-cell lymphoma

B-cell depletion with agents such as Rituxan(R) has proven successful in the treatment of hematological malignancies in the clinic, but patients still relapse and become refractory. Strategies to improve efficacy of B-cell directed therapies include boosting the cytotoxicity of agents and expanding to targets beyond CD20.

The objective of this preclinical model was to evaluate Trubion's SCORPION multispecific therapeutic as a next-generation candidate for oncology. An optimal bispecific molecule was identified that demonstrated highly potent activities against B-cell lymphoma cells in vitro.

The CD79BxDR SCORPION can bind to two different targets: CD79B, a lineage-restricted component of the B-cell antigen receptor, and HLA-DR, an HLA Class II molecule. Target binding by the SCORPION molecule has an affinity similar to Trubion's Small Modular Immunopharmaceutical (SMIP(TM)) proteins or monoclonal antibodies against th
