About ALPN-101

ALPN-101 is a novel Fc fusion protein of a human inducible T cell costimulator ligand (ICOSL) variant immunoglobulin domain (vIgD™), a first-in-class therapeutic designed to inhibit simultaneously the CD28 and ICOS inflammation pathways. CD28 and ICOS are closely related costimulatory molecules with partially overlapping roles in T cell activation likely playing a role in multiple autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. In preclinical models of graft versus host disease, inflammatory arthritis, connective tissue disease, and multiple sclerosis, ALPN-101 demonstrates efficacy superior to agents blocking the CD28 - CD80/86 and/or ICOS - ICOSL pathways alone. A phase 1b/2 trial of ALPN-101 in acute GVHD (BALANCE, NCT04227938) has been initiated.

About Alpine Immune Sciences, Inc.

Alpine Immune Sciences, Inc. is committed to leading a new wave of immune therapeutics, creating potentially powerful multifunctional immunotherapies to improve patients’ lives via unique protein engineering technologies. Alpine has two programs in clinical development. The first, ALPN-101 for autoimmune/inflammatory diseases, is a selective dual T cell costimulation antagonist engineered to reduce pathogenic T and B cell immune responses by inhibiting ICOS and CD28. ALPN-101 has recently completed enrollment of a phase 1 healthy volunteer study, and BALANCE, a phase 1b/2 study in acute GVHD, has recently been initiated. The second, ALPN-202 for cancer, is a conditional CD28 costimulator and dual checkpoint inhibitor, and enrollment is open in NEON-1, a phase 1 study in advanced malignancies. Alpine is backed by world-class research and development capabilities, a highly productive scientific platform, and a proven management team.
