– Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Newman to present initial clinical data that further validates Company’s Pulse-Prime hypothesis

– Dr. Newman also named Chair of the Summit

NEW YORK, June 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Indaptus Therapeutics, Inc, (Nasdaq: INDP), a clinical stage biotechnology company dedicated to pioneering innovative cancer and viral infection treatments, today announced that its founder and Chief Scientific Officer, Michael Newman, Ph.D., will present additional data on the Company’s lead product candidate, Decoy20, at the 5th Annual STING & TLR-Targeted Therapies Summit in San Diego on June 19-20, 2024. Dr. Newman has also been named chair of the Summit.

Dr. Newman’s presentation, titled, Hitting Multiple Immune System Targets with a Passively Targeted, Pulsed, Systemic Approach to Amplify Efficacy & Widen the Therapeutic Index, will be presented at 9:15 a.m. on June 20th. It will highlight how the Company’s pre-clinical data and, in particular, its Pulse-Prime hypothesis, are being further validated by its initial Decoy20 clinical data.

Jeffrey Meckler, Indaptus CEO commented, This is the second year in a row that Dr. Newman has been named chair of the STING & TLR conference. This well-deserved recognition reflects both Michael’s expertise in immuno-oncology, and the Company’s solid progress developing a novel treatment using engineered killed bacteria to broadly stimulate the immune system in patients with advanced solid tumors. Further, we are grateful for the opportunity to share our latest progress on Decoy20 with the scientific community. The 5th Annual STING & TLR-Targeted Therapies Summit provides an excellent forum for companies to present their latest research on Toll-Like Receptor-based therapies.

About Indaptus Therapeutics

Indaptus Therapeutics has evolved from more than a century of immunotherapy advances. The Company’s novel approach is based on the hypothesis that efficient activation of both innate and adaptive immune cells and pathways and associated anti-tumor and anti-viral immune responses will require a multi-targeted package of immune system-activating signals that can be administered safely intravenously (i.v.). Indaptus’ patented technology is composed of single strains of attenuated and killed, non-pathogenic, Gram-negative bacteria producing a multiple Toll-like receptor (TLR), Nucleotide oligomerization domain (NOD)-like receptor (NLR) and Stimulator of interferon genes (STING) agonist Decoy platform. The product candidates are designed to have reduced i.v. toxicity, but largely uncompromised ability to prime or activate many of the cells and pathways of innate and adaptive immunity. Decoy product candidates represent an antigen-agnostic technology that have produced single-agent activity against metastatic pancreatic and orthotopic colorectal carcinomas, single agent eradication of established antigen-expressing breast carcinoma, as well as combination-mediated eradication of established hepatocellular carcinomas, pancreatic and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas in standard pre-clinical models, including syngeneic mouse tumors and human tumor xenografts. In pre-clinical studies tumor eradication was observed with Decoy product candidates in combination with anti-PD-1 checkpoint therapy, low-dose chemotherapy, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, or an approved, targeted antibody. Combination-based tumor eradication in pre-clinical models produced innate and adaptive immunological memory, involved activation of both innate and adaptive immune cells, and was associated with induction of innate and adaptive immune pathways in tumors after only one i.v. dose of Decoy product candidate, with associated cold to hot tumor inflammation signature transition. IND-enabling, nonclinical toxicology studies demonstrated i.v. administration without sustained induction of hallmark biomarkers of cytokine release syndromes, possibly due to passive targeting to liver, spleen, and tumor, followed by rapid elimination of the product candidate. Indaptus’ Decoy product candidates have also produced meaningful single agent activity against chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) and chronic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections in pre-clinical models.
