Unlocking the Power of Immunotherapy: Elicio Therapeutics’ (NASDAQ: ELTX) Novel AMP Platform

Benzinga

By Jeremy Golden, Benzinga Approximately two million people were diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. in 2023, with breast, prostate, lung and bronchus cancers among the most common. An estimated 609,820 people died of cancer last year. The most common treatments are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, though other options include targeted therapy as well as laser and hormonal therapies. Another treatment option is immunotherapy, which is designed to utilize the immune system to fight cancer. Immune responses are orchestrated by key immune cells in the lymph nodes, but for many therapies, getting to these critical sites is far from certain. Small molecule-based immunomodulators easily pass through the blood vessel walls at the injection site. As a result, they are rapidly flushed away into the systemic circulation, limiting access to the lymph nodes. Often, this results in a failure to realize the full potential of the immune response. Worse yet, it can lead to the development of dangerous toxicities at other sites in the body. Elicio Therapeutics’ Novel Approach Founded in 2011, Elicio Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELTX) is developing treatment options aimed at significantly improving the quality of life for cancer patients through the utilization of precision vaccines, immunomodulators and cell-based therapies to potentially assemble cancer-killing immune responses against solid tumors. The company is optimistic about the potential of lymph node-targeting made possible by applying the natural trafficking pathways of larger molecules. This approach differentiates Elicio from its competitors and could be highly promising for enhancing anti-tumor immune responses and improving therapeutic efficacy. Developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the company’s proprietary Amphiphile or “AMP” platform, which combines expertise in materials science and immunology, is being used to develop novel immunotherapies, including cell therapy activators, immunomodulators, adjuvants and vaccines for an array of aggressive cancers and infectious diseases. Here’s how it works: The AMP platform is designed to deliver therapeutic payloads directly to critical immune cells in the lymph nodes, enhancing the cancer-fighting mechanisms of the immune system. By delivering cancer immunotherapies to the center of the immune response, this approach is intended to optimize the natural ability of the lymph nodes to educate, activate and amplify cancer-specific T cells. Engineered to coordinate immunity in these uniquely potent sites, the AMP platform was built to amplify the magnitude, potency, quality and durability of the immune response to drive antitumor activity. At the injection site, the platform prevents detrimental payload delivery to systemic circulation, instead guiding the payloads into the lymphatics to promote lymph node delivery. Additionally, it preserves the structural integrity and activity of payloads by preventing any degradation prior to uptake by lymph node resident immune cells. Upon reaching the lymph nodes, the platform optimizes retention and directs the delivery of payloads to key immune cells responsible for the coordination of immune responses, specifically the activation and amplification of cancer-specific immune cells in lymph nodes. Overall, Elicio Therapeutics anticipates that the AMP platform could potentially provide a better quality of life to patients during treatment. The strategy is set apart from other treatments by its ability to activate immune mechanisms directly in the lymph nodes. Enhanced T cell infiltration into tumors, improved T cell expansion and persistence, potent anti-tumor T cell function and wide breadth of response are key attributes with the potential to improve efficacy and reduce the risk of resistance to therapy. Moving forward, Elicio Therapeutics is committed to developing its lymph node-targeting approach for deployment across a range of vaccines, immunomodulators and adjuvants — training the immune system to put the best cells forward to fight a broad spectrum of cancers.

PathAI Announces Research Presentations at the 2024 AACR Annual Meeting

PathAI

PathAI, Inc., a leading AI-powered precision pathology company, today announced it will present research from its portfolio of oncology products at the AACR Annual Meeting on April 7-10, 2024, in San Diego, CA. The research demonstrates how machine learning models developed to characterize the tumor microenvironment (TME) from routine hematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained whole slide images (WSIs) can be used to advance biomarker development and precision medicine strategies. The presentations include new research leveraging PathAI’s pan-tumor foundation models and its commercially available product, PathExplore 1, to identify key histologic features associated with molecular signatures and patient response to therapy. Highlights: Researchers deployed PathExplore on HNSCC and NSCLC samples to characterize the cell and tissue composition of the tumor microenvironment, as well as compute immune phenotypes directly from H&E WSI. (Poster #905 ) Researchers from Incendia Therapeutics developed a continuous scoring method for Discoidin Domain Receptor 1 (DDR1), which revealed widespread immune exclusion in tumors based on the spatial distribution of lymphocytes, CD8+ T cells, and CD45+ immune cells from H&E and mIF images. DDR1 is highly expressed in epithelial cancers and has been implicated in tumor growth, invasion, and lack of response to therapy. The immune exclusion score correlates with DDR1 mRNA and protein expression. The study provides additional insight into the role of DDR1 in human cancers and may be useful in selecting indications and stratifying patients for DDR1-targeted therapies. (Poster #2916 ) Using unsupervised learning driven by PathExplore’s features and a novel collagen fiber detection imaging technology, researchers discovered three distinct phenotypes of cancer associated stroma (CAS) that had distinct patterns of association with survival and gene expression signatures. Two of them were enriched in collagen fiber density as well as in density of fibroblasts, while the third phenotype had the highest density of immune cells, providing a categorization of different types of CAS-tumor interaction that may be useful for patient stratification. (Poster #4912 ) Using AI-powered models from PathAI, Foundation Medicine researchers investigated digital pathology TME features of immunotherapy outcomes among NSCLC patients within a real-world dataset from the Flatiron Health-Foundation Medicine Clinico-Genomic Database. These results indicate that the composition of the TME assessed via digital pathology may have utility in identifying NSCLC patients who will respond to first-line immune checkpoint inhibitors beyond the established immunotherapy biomarkers. (Poster #4969 ) In collaboration with EMD Serono, AI-powered TME models from PathAI were used to analyze H&E WSI of NSCLC from a randomized Phase 3 trial directly comparing two immunotherapies. Researchers compared cell abundance features with gene expression data from the same samples and found that immune and stromal cell abundance features were associated with expression of genes in relevant cellular pathways, confirming the biological relevance of our cellular features. In analyzing the features alongside the clinical data from the retrospective study, researchers identified candidate prognostic immunotherapy biomarkers. (Poster #6179 ) Researchers from Incendia Therapeutics illustrated that morphologic features derived from H&E images using PathExplore can be effective predictors of CD8-defined immune exclusion, providing an option for patient stratification by immune phenotype using widely available H&E images. The features and direction of association align with prior knowledge of the mechanism or manifestations of immune exclusion or infiltration in the TME, including the relative density of lymphocytes in tumor and stroma. (Poster #7392 ) PathAI’s pan-tumor foundation models were used to identify tissue regions and cell types on H&E WSI to quantify tumor purity across multiple tumor types. Model-derived tumor purity estimates were compared to three orthogonal molecular methods of purity and found to correlate across disease indications. These results provide evidence of how AI can improve the efficiency of molecular testing and enhance precision diagnostic strategies. (Poster #7402 ) Follow PathAI on LinkedIn and X for more updates from #AACR24 and visit us in person at booth #1549. 1 PathExplore is For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. About PathAI PathAI is the only AI-focused technology company to provide comprehensive precision pathology solutions from wet lab services to algorithm deployment for clinical trials and laboratory use. Rigorously trained and validated with data from more than 15 million annotations, its AI-powered models can be leveraged to optimize the analysis of pathology samples to improve efficiency and accuracy of pathology interpretation, as well as to better gauge therapeutic efficacy and accelerate drug development for complex diseases.
