A first-in-class anti-KIR3DL2 humanised cytotoxicity-inducing antibody called lacutamab (IPH4102) is undergoing clinical trials for the treatment of the rare diseases cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) and peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL). Rare T lymphocyte-related cutaneous lymphomas have a dismal prognosis and few effective and secure treatment choices at advanced stages.

Approximately 65% of individuals with all CTCL subtypes express the inhibitory KIR3DL2 receptor, and up to 90% of patients with some aggressive CTCL subtypes, particularly Sézary syndrome. Up to 50% of those with peripheral T-cell lymphoma and mycosis fungoides express it (PTCL). On healthy tissues, it only occasionally expresses itself.


ANKET (Antibody-based NK cell Engager Therapeutics) is Innate’s proprietary platform for developing next-generation, multi-specific natural killer (NK) cell engagers to treat certain types of cancer.

This versatile, fit-for-purpose technology is creating an entirely new class of molecules to induce synthetic immunity against cancer. It leverages the advantages of harnessing NK cell effector functions against cancer cells and also provides proliferation and activation signals targeted to NK cells.

Our latest innovation, the tetra-specific ANKET molecule, is the first NK cell engager technology to engage activating receptors (NKp46 and CD16), a tumor antigen and an interleukin-2 receptor (via an IL-2 variant, IL-2v) via a single molecule.


The ongoing development for monalizumab is concentrated on investigating monalizumab in a variety of combination strategies in various malignancies, such as early lung cancer. This includes the Phase 3 PACIFIC-9 study in adults with locally advanced (Stage III), unresectable NSCLC who have not progressed after platinum-based concurrent chemoradiotherapy and the Phase 2 NeoCOAST-2 study in the neoadjuvant early-stage setting of NSCLC.

For Americans of all ages, healthcare costs are an inescapable expense. And if it isn’t a significant expense for you right now, it probably will be in the future. For this reason, funding an HSA, or health savings account, makes sense. A hybrid savings and investment account is an HSA. […]
