About Alpine Immune Sciences, Inc.
Alpine Immune Sciences, Inc. is committed to leading a new wave of functional immune therapeutics. Alpine is the first company employing directed evolution to create potentially powerful multifunctional immunotherapies to improve patients’ lives. Supported by promising preclinical data, we aim to have two programs in the clinic in 2019. The first, ALPN-101 for autoimmune/inflammatory diseases, is a dual ICOS/CD28 antagonist, engineered to reverse pathogenic immune responses. The second, ALPN-202 for cancer, is a dual PD-L1/CTLA-4 antagonist and PD-L1-dependent CD28 T cell costimulator intended to combine checkpoint inhibition with a necessary costimulation signal – an approach currently absent from approved checkpoint therapies. Alpine is backed by world-class research capabilities, a highly-productive scientific platform, and a proven management team. For more information, visit www.alpineimmunesciences.com.
