Paul W.H.I. Parren, Ph.D., EVP, Head of R&D to share data regarding LAVA bispecific gamma delta T cell engagers derived from proprietary Gammabody™ platform

UTRECHT, The Netherlands and PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LAVA Therapeutics N.V. (Nasdaq: LVTX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing its proprietary Gammabody™ platform of bispecific gamma delta T cell engagers (bsTCEs) to transform the treatment of cancer, today announced that Paul W.H.I. Parren, Ph.D., executive vice president, head of research and development (R&D) at LAVA, will participate in three upcoming scientific conferences in November.

“Gamma delta T cells provide a highly promising effector cell modality,” said Paul W.H.I. Parren, Ph.D., executive vice president, head of R&D at LAVA. “I look forward to sharing data on several bispecific gamma delta T cell engagers derived from our Gammabody™ platform that pair potent and selective tumor cell killing with a low toxicity risk profile, thereby potentially translating into a wider therapeutic window. Our Gammabody™ platform provides a novel immuno-oncology approach to fight cancer.”

About LAVA Therapeutics
LAVA Therapeutics N.V. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company utilizing its proprietary Gammabody™ platform to develop a portfolio of bispecific gamma delta T cell engagers (gamma delta bsTCEs) for the treatment of solid tumors and hematological malignancies. The company’s innovative approach utilizes bispecific antibodies engineered to selectively kill cancer cells via the triggering of Vγ9Vδ2 T cell antitumor effector functions upon cross-linking to tumor associated antigens. A Phase 1/2a clinical study evaluating LAVA-051 in patients with certain hematological malignancies is enrolling patients (NCT04887259). The company currently anticipates data from the Phase 1 dose escalation phase of the study in the first half of 2022 with top line clinical data from the Phase 2a expansion cohorts expected in the second half of 2022. The company plans to initiate a Phase 1/2a clinical study to evaluate LAVA-1207 in patients with prostate cancer in the fourth quarter of 2021.
