NovalGen announces two oral presentations at upcoming conferences

-Updated pre-clinical data for NVG-444, a novel FVIII mimetic bispecific antibody with our proprietary autoregulation platform technology in patients with haemophilia A to be presented at ISTH 2023 Congress-

- Updated pre-clinical data for NVG-222, a first in class half-life extended T Cell engager targeting ROR1-

 London, United Kingdom, 9 June, 2023 – NovalGen Ltd (“NovalGen”), a biopharmaceutical company developing disruptive therapies, based on a proprietary autoregulation (AR) platform, today announces the presentation of preclinical data on this novel technology in two separate indications at the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis Congress (ISTH), 24-28 June, 2023 in Toronto and the Immuno-Oncology Summit Boston 2023, 7-9 August, 2023 in Boston.

“We are delighted to be showcasing our proprietary platform, which has the potential to improve the safety profile and therapeutic index of a range of immunotherapies. Preclinical data with NVG-444 shows a reduction in thrombotic complications with a bispecific Factor VIII mimetic. These data will be presented in an oral presentation at ISTH. The AR platform is target agnostic as illustrated by its application to an extended half-life T cell engager (TCE) targeting ROR1, resulting in a dramatic reduction in toxicity, thus addressing the “Achilles heel” of TCEs allowing more patients to benefit from this off the shelf, T cell activating technology. The AR technology can be applied to a wide range of immunotherapies and heralds a new and exciting class of self-regulating drugs that respond to biological cues to avoid life-threatening toxicities,” said Professor Amit Nathwani, Founder and CEO of NovalGen.

Both abstracts will be delivered as oral presentations at the conferences.
