Jasper Therapeutics Announces Oral Presentation of Positive Final Results from Phase 1 Study of Briquilimab in Patients with AML or MDS Undergoing Hematopoietic Cell Transplant at ASH 2023
The study being presented demonstrated that a regimen of briquilimab plus Flu/TBI leads to successful engraftment of donor blood stem cell without the associated short and long-term toxicities that accompany busulfan-based regimens commonly used in transplant of donor or gene-corrected cells. Based on its mechanism of action, briquilimab is known to potently synergize with radiation, leading to stem cell depletion without increasing off-target toxicity.
“We are pleased to be able to present positive final results from this study in an oral presentation at the ASH Annual Meeting, which support a favorable safety profile for briquilimab as well as its clinical potential in a variety of indications and patient types,” said
Details of the presentation are as follows:
Abstract Title: Final Results from Phase 1 Study of Briquilimab, an Anti-CD117 Monoclonal Antibody, in Combination with Low Dose Irradiation and Fludarabine Conditioning, Shows Durable Remissions in Older Adults with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in Complete Remission and Myelodysplastic Syndrome Undergoing Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

Briquilimab (formerly JSP191) is a targeted aglycosylated monoclonal antibody that blocks stem cell factor from binding to the cell-surface receptor c-Kit, also known as CD117, thereby inhibiting signaling through the receptor. This inhibition disrupts the critical survival signal, leading to the depletion of the mast cells via apoptosis which removes the underlying source of the inflammatory response in mast cell driven disease such as chronic urticaria. Jasper intends to start clinical studies of briquilimab as a primary treatment in Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria as well as in Chronic Inducible Urticaria. Briquilimab is also currently in clinical studies as a treatment for patients with Low to Intermediate Risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and as a conditioning agent for cell and gene therapies for rare diseases. To date, briquilimab has a demonstrated efficacy and safety profile in more than 145 dosed participants and healthy volunteers, with clinical outcomes as a conditioning agent in severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), AML, MDS, Fanconi anemia (FA), and sickle cell disease (SCD).
Jasper is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing briquilimab, a monoclonal antibody targeting c-Kit (CD117) as a therapeutic for chronic mast and stem cell diseases such as chronic urticaria and lower to intermediate risk MDS and as a conditioning agent for stem cell transplants for rare diseases such as SCD, FA and SCID. To date, briquilimab has a demonstrated efficacy and safety profile in more than 145 dosed participants and healthy volunteers, with clinical outcomes as a conditioning agent in SCID, AML, MDS, FA, and SCD.

These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding briquilimab’s potential, including its ability to potently synergize with radiation, leading to stem cell depletion without increasing off-target toxicity, its promising safety profile and its clinical potential in a variety of indications and patient types, the development of briquilimab for CSU, CIndU, LR-MDS and novel stem cell transplant conditioning regimens, and Jasper’s expectations regarding its Phase 1 trial evaluating briquilimab as a second-line therapy in subjects with LR-MDS, including the expected timing for presenting data for the trial. These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this press release, and on the current expectations of Jasper and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by an investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability.
