Aura Biosciences to Present Preclinical Data Demonstrating Applicability of AU-011 in Bladder Cancer at the 2022 ASCO Genitourinary Cancer Symposium
Company on Track to Initiate Phase 1 Clinical Trial in 2H 2022
“Non-muscle invasive bladder cancer remains an area of high unmet need with high levels of recurrence and progression and no approved targeted therapies. We believe that AU-011’s mechanism of action supports its potential use as a front-line treatment following initial diagnosis and/or for Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) refractory disease,” said Dr.
Demonstration of AU-011 Applicability in Urothelial Cancer
Using a panel of human bladder cancer cell lines that represent different stages of the disease, AU-011 demonstrated consistent tumor cell binding and cytotoxicity in vitro. These data support that AU-011’s targeting of bladder cancer cells through HSPGs is tumor grade agnostic. Tumor binding and distribution of AU-011 was evident in both ex vivo human bladder cancer tissues and in an in vivo murine bladder cancer model. Collectively, these results support further investigation of the use of AU-011 in patients with urothelial neoplasia.
