“We are very pleased to be signing another collaboration with MSD, supporting the expansion of the clinical trial program of BT-001, the oncolytic virus expressing our proprietary anti-CTLA-4 antibody, jointly developed by Transgene and BioInvent. It marks a further validation of our expanding and promising clinical pipeline of anti-cancer treatments, which currently encompasses three compounds in four ongoing clinical trials” added Martin Welschof, CEO of BioInvent.

Recruitment in the clinical study is ongoing. The trial is a Phase I/IIa of BT-001, which is being co-developed as part of a 50/50 collaboration between Transgene and BioInvent, as a single agent and in combination with KEYTRUDA for the treatment of solid tumors.
