Zai Lab Presentations at AACR 2024 Annual Meeting to Showcase Ongoing Clinical Studies in Key Global Oncology Programs

Poster sessions to highlight Phase 1 trials of internal oncology candidates ZL-1310, a next-generation antibody-drug conjugate for small cell lung cancer and other DLL3+ solid tumors, and ZL-1218, an anti-CCR8 antibody for advanced solid tumors

These internally discovered programs underscore the Company’s focus on extending oncology R&D innovation to people with cancer worldwide

Zai Lab Limited (NASDAQ: ZLAB; HKEX: 9688) today announced that two poster presentations highlighting ongoing global clinical studies in its oncology pipeline will be presented at the upcoming American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2024 taking place April 5-10, 2024, in San Diego, California.

The global oncology programs to be showcased at AACR 2024 include a Phase 1a/1b study of ZL-1310 (NCT06179069), a novel antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) within the Zai Lab pipeline that targets the Delta-like ligand 3 (DLL3), a validated therapeutic target for the treatment of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). ZL-1310 is designed with a novel linker-payload platform TMALIN® which leverages the tumor microenvironment to overcome challenges associated with first-generation ADC therapies.

Also featured at AACR 2024 will be Zai Lab’s Phase 1 study (NCT05859464) of ZL-1218, an anti-CCR8 antibody that blocks regulatory T cells (Treg) which suppress antitumor immunity in tumor tissue and is designed to deplete Treg cells selectively in tumors and minimally in other tissue.

“These ongoing global clinical studies underscore Zai Lab’s continued commitment to pursue both novel and validated cancer biology targets and advance innovative oncology therapies that can potentially reach patients around the world,” said Rafael G. Amado, M.D., President, Head of Global Oncology Research and Development, Zai Lab. “We are dedicated to advancing the pipeline through both drug discovery and partnerships to address therapeutic challenges and unmet patient needs. As we extend the impact of our R&D innovation on a global scale, we look forward to highlighting these programs from our differentiated oncology pipeline at AACR 2024.”
