WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InterVenn Biosciences, the leader in glycoproteomics, presented results today on a predictive signature capable of identifying non-small cell lung cancer patients that will benefit most from immune checkpoint inhibitors. This signature was developed using InterVenn’s perspectIV™ platform which combines high-resolution mass-spectrometry-derived glycoprotein profiling with advanced artificial intelligence and neural-networking-based data processing to newly allow glycoproteomic interrogation at clinical scale, opening up a revolutionary, highly powerful new layer of biomarker opportunities.
An oral presentation today at the Conference for the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer outlined the results of a study whereby pre-treatment blood samples from a cohort of patients treated with first-line pembrolizumab (alone or in combination with chemotherapy) were interrogated using the perspectIV™ platform. A panel of glycopeptide markers predictive of response was identified. This glycopeptide-based signature stratified the patient cohort into two groups which showed significant differences in median overall survival of 2.8 years vs. 0.8 years, at a hazard ratio of 7.4, (p=0.007).
“These results are an important step in the development of our Dawn™ assay and were the impetus of our current development and validation activities,” said Aldo Carrascoso, CEO and co-founder of InterVenn. “We look forward to sharing the results of our current development and validation efforts in NSCLC and other indications as we proceed to the launch of Dawn™ in 2022.”
