MARSEILLES, FRANCE -- (Marketwire) -- 12/19/12 -- Innate Pharma SA (the "Company") (EURONEXT PARIS: IPH) (FR0010331421), the innate immunity company developing first-in-class drugs for cancer and inflammatory diseases, today announces that a second Phase I combination trial for IPH2102/BMS-986015 was published on the NIH website ClinicalTrials.gov: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01750580.
This trial follows the Phase I trial of IPH2102/BMS-986015 in combination with anti-PD-1 nivolumab (BMS-936558) announced in October and published on the NIH website ClinicalTrials.gov: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01714739.
Marcel Rozencweig, Chief Medical Officer of Innate Pharma, said: "In this second Phase I trial, IPH2102/BMS-986015 will be tested in a variety of solid tumors, in combination with ipilimumab, the first approved immunomodulating antibody." He added: "With the Phase II trial in Acute Myeloid Leukemia and the Phase I in combination with anti-PD-1 nivolumab previously announced, the anti-KIR approach is undergoing wide early clinical testing".
About the Phase I trial with IPH2102/BMS-986015 in combination with ipilimumab in solid tumors:
The purpose of this Phase I open label study is to determine whether the combination of IPH2102/BMS-986015 and ipilimumab is safe and provide preliminary information on the clinical activity of the combination.
The primary outcome will be safety. Secondary outcomes will include a preliminary assessment of efficacy, as measured by tumor assessment. The study will be conducted in two parts -- dose escalation and cohort expansion -- and is expected to enroll approximately 150 patients. Tumor types will be restricted to the following advanced (metastatic and/or unresectable) tumor types: melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer -- squamous and non-squamous histology, and castrate resistant prostate cancer.
IPH2102/BMS-986015 is a fully human monoclonal antibody blocking interaction between Killer-cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) on NK cells with their ligands. Blocking these receptors facilitates activation of NK cells and, potentially, destruction of tumor cells by the latter.
IPH2102/BMS-986015 is licensed to Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY). As part of the agreement between Innate Pharma and Bristol-Myers Squibb, Bristol-Myers Squibb holds exclusive worldwide rights to develop, manufacture and commercialize IPH2102/BMS-986015 and related compounds blocking KIR receptors, for all indications. Under the agreement, Innate Pharma will conduct the development of IPH2102/BMS-986015 through Phase II in Acute Myeloid Leukemia ("AML").
IPH2102/ BMS-986015 is currently tested in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase II trial in elderly patients with AML in a maintenance setting as well as in two combination Phase I trials in solid tumors, respectively with ipilimumab and with the anti-PD-1 antibody nivolumab (BMS-936558).

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
