Demonstrates ability to identify patient populations that may benefit from IMM-1-104 treatment
Biomarker discovery and clinical translation supports patient selection in ongoing Phase 1/2a clinical trial with IMM-1-104 in patients with advanced solid tumors harboring RAS mutations
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immuneering Corporation (Nasdaq: IMRX), a clinical-stage oncology company developing medicines for broad populations of cancer patients with an initial aim to develop a universal-RAS therapy, announced today that it will be presenting data on its lead program IMM-1-104 at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) annual meeting, held April 14-19 in Orlando, Florida.
“We look forward to presenting data that highlight a unique pharmacogenomics approach that quantifies MAPK pathway addiction across diverse genetic cancer landscapes. Our overarching goal was to identify patient tumor profiles that support clinical translation of IMM-1-104,” said Brett Hall, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Immuneering. “State-of-the-art humanized 3D tumor models were used in concert with patient-aligned bioinformatics to map IMM-1-104 response profiles in support of our Phase 1/2a clinical trial, which is enrolling patients with advanced solid tumors harboring RAS mutations.”
Details for the poster presentation are as follows:

IMM-1-104 aims to achieve universal-RAS activity that selectively impacts cancer cells to a greater extent than healthy cells, through deep cyclic inhibition of the MAPK pathway with once-daily dosing. IMM-1-104 is currently being evaluated in a Phase 1/2a study in patients with advanced solid tumors harboring RAS mutations (NCT05585320).
