Interim Data from Ambrx’s Study of ARX788 selected for Spotlight Poster Discussion at the 2022 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ​Ambrx Biopharma Inc., or Ambrx, (NYSE: AMAM), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company using its proprietary Engineered Precision Biologics (EPBs) platform to create antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), today announced that interim data from its safety and efficacy study of ARX788 have been selected for a Spotlight Poster Discussion at the 2022 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) being held December 6th to 10th, 2022, in San Antonio, TX. ACE-Breast-03 (NCT04829604) is a Phase 2, single-arm clinical study evaluating ARX788 in patients with HER2+ metastatic breast cancer (mBC) whose disease progressed following T-DM1, T-DXd and/or tucatinib-containing regimens. Ambrx’s abstract was selected as a Spotlight Poster Discussion session, which features oncology experts discussing the most prominent topics and latest findings in breast cancer research. Each Spotlight session will include a live 15-minute Q&A session with Spotlight discussants and poster presenters. The Spotlight Poster Discussion will provide efficacy and safety data in the post T-DM1 patient population treated with ARX788.

ARX788 is an anti-HER2 antibody drug conjugate currently being studied in several registrational trials in breast cancer and gastric/GEJ cancer by Ambrx’s partner, NovoCodex Biopharmaceuticals, in China. Pursuant to its recently announced strategic reprioritization, Ambrx has paused the internal development of ARX788 and is seeking to partner ARX788 outside of China.

Details for the Spotlight Poster Discussion poster presentation are shown below:
