Alpha Cancer Technologies (ACT) Publishes Pre-Clinical Study Results in Cancer Cell International Demonstrating Excellent Safety and Significant Anti-Tumor Activity from the Company’s Next Generation ADC, ACT-903

April 6, 2023
Press Release

ACT-903 conjugate demonstrated significant anti-tumor activity, with tumors becoming undetectable in 9 of 10 mice, and all 10 mice surviving through Day 60 with no obvious signs of toxicity

ACT’s technology highlights the potential to use the natural function of AFP as a carrier protein to deliver a payload uniquely targeted to cancer cells, while reducing risk of immune reactions or anti-drug antibody accumulation

Alpha fetoprotein conjugates had a very low percentage of free toxin detectable in blood after administration, and did not show any bone marrow accumulation of cytotoxic payload, suggesting limited off-target toxicity

Toronto, Canada, April 6, 2023 a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing targeted immuno-oncology and immunomodulation therapies based on its proprietary recombinant human Alpha Fetoprotein (AFP) platform, today announced the publication of pre-clinical study results in Cancer Cell International highlighting the company’s recombinant human AFP (ACT-101) conjugate with maytansine in mouse xenograft models of colorectal cancer. Results from the study demonstrate the exceptional safety profile and potent anti-tumor activity of multiple ACT-101 conjugates through the successful targeting of the alpha fetoprotein receptor uniquely located on cancerous cells and myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs).
