Abstract: First-generation CD137 agonists reached limited clinical outcomes due to hepatotoxicity and/or poor efficacy. With a “fit-for-purpose” design, NovaRock developed a CD137 bispecific platform to activate the co-stimulatory pathway through TAA-mediated receptor clustering. These bispecific antibodies reprogram the tumor microenvironment to elicit potent anti-tumor effects without detectable toxicity and long-lasting immunological memory. Additionally, these antibodies have been optimized to facilitate development and manufacturing. The lead antibody NBL-028 is currently in the IND-enabling stage.
