Dr. Daniel Vaena, Director of Experimental Therapeutics Program at West Cancer Center Research Institute, co-presented updated data from Compugen Ltd.’s Phase 1 dose escalation and expansion study of COM701 as a monotherapy, and in a dose escalation combination study with Opdivo® (nivolumab)


Vaena states “Although these results are very preliminary, they suggest that targeting PVRIG may extend the benefit of immunotherapy to patient populations and tumor types which are typically unresponsive to existing immunotherapy agents. Achieving durable responses in patients with progression on immune checkpoint inhibitors is encouraging and speaks to the potential of this novel immune checkpoint inhibitor to improve clinical outcomes for patients with significant unmet medical need.”
