About KaloBios

KaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is developing a portfolio of proprietary, patient-targeted, first-in-class monoclonal antibodies designed to treat severe life-threatening or debilitating diseases for which there is an unmet medical need, with a clinical focus on severe respiratory diseases and cancer.

Currently, KaloBios has advanced three programs to clinical development:

  • KB001-A is an anti-PcrV mAb fragment, partnered exclusively with Sanofi Pasteur, and is being developed for the prevention and treatment of Pa infection. KaloBios has retained rights for the CF indication and is conducting a 180 patient Phase 2 study in CF subjects with chronic Pa lung infection. KaloBios has received Orphan Drug designation from both the U.S. FDA and the European Medicines Agency for KB001-A for the treatment of Pa lung infection in CF patients. Sanofi is pursuing a ventilator-associated pneumonia prevention indication in the intensive care setting, an indication which has received U.S. FDA Fast Track Designation.

  • KB004 is an anti-EphA3 mAb with potential in treating hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. KaloBios is conducting an ongoing Phase 1/2 study evaluating KB004 in hematologic malignancies. The Phase 1 dose escalation portion of that study in subjects with hematologic malignancies is ongoing. KaloBios initiated the Phase 2 expansion portion of the study focused on EphA3 positive patients with acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome in early 2014.

  • KB003 is an anti-GM-CSF mAb with potential to treat inflammatory diseases that was being developed for the treatment of severe asthma. A Phase 2 clinical study in 160 patients with severe asthma has been completed in the United States, Europe and Australia, which did not meet its primary endpoint of improvement in FEV1 from baseline as compared to placebo. KaloBios has discontinued development of this compound in severe asthma, and is continuing to analyze the Phase 2 data to review with thought leaders and evaluate other possible indications in order to determine next steps, if any, in the development of KB003.

All of the company's antibodies were generated using its proprietary Humaneered® technology, a method that converts nonhuman antibodies (typically mouse) into recombinant antibodies that have a high binding affinity to their target and are designed for chronic therapeutic use. The company believes that antibodies produced using its Humaneered® technology offer important clinical and economic advantages over antibodies generated by other methods in terms of high binding affinity, high manufacturing yields, and minimal to no immunogenicity (inappropriate immune response) upon repeat administration in humans.

The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
