Jasper Therapeutics Announces Development Prioritization of Briquilimab in Chronic Diseases, including Urticaria and Lower-Risk MDS, and Stem Cell Transplant for Sickle Cell Disease and Other Rare Diseases
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., January 10, 2023 - Jasper Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: JSPR) (“Jasper” or the “Company”), a biotechnology company developing novel antibody therapies and stem cell transplant conditioning agents targeting c-Kit, today announced, as part of an overall portfolio prioritization, that the Company will focus on the development of its lead product candidate, briquilimab (formerly known as JSP191), in chronic diseases and stem cell transplant for rare diseases. This portfolio includes a new program on chronic urticaria, along with the Company’s existing programs for lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), sickle cell disease, Fanconi anemia and severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID).
Based on preclinical and clinical studies showing inhibition of c-Kit signaling, depletion of mast cells in skin and lung and extended pharmacokinetics of subcutaneous dosing, the Company has prioritized rapidly starting a clinical study in severe chronic urticaria. In the meantime, while the Company does not have any near-term plans to initiate a Phase 3 study in AML/MDS, the Company will continue to work with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the transplant community and potential partners to explore development pathways and ensure briquilimab remains ready for a pivotal Phase 3 study in AML/MDS stem cell transplant.
“We are ecstatic about the growing body of clinical and scientific evidence that show briquilimab has an attractive tolerability profile in a number of potential indications and may provide clinically meaningful results for a wide range of patients, and are grateful to our team, clinical investigators, patients and external partners for helping us advance this drug into later stage trials so quickly in such a challenging environment over the past two years,” said Ronald Martell, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jasper. “We believe focusing on the most well-characterized opportunities with the clearest and potentially fastest pathway to market is in the best interest of patients and our shareholders. As such, our near-term development program will consist of moving rapidly into a clinical trial in chronic severe urticaria and initiating our chronic lower-risk MDS study, while continuing recruitment in the SCID, Fanconi anemia and sickle cell disease transplant studies.”

Briquilimab’s potential has been consistently validated across five indications: SCID, acute myeloid leukemia, MDS, Fanconi anemia and, most recently, sickle cell disease. The Company expects new supportive data to be presented at the upcoming 2023 Tandem Meetings: Transplantation & Cellular Therapy Meetings of ASTCT and CIBMTR that will further reinforce the broad opportunity for briquilimab.
Clinical studies with briquilimab and investigational agents from other companies suggest that targeting c-Kit has strong therapeutic potential for chronic mast cell diseases such as urticaria and allergic asthma. This therapeutic approach has also shown promise in lower-risk MDS.
“We believe prioritizing these opportunities provides the best path forward to near-term, clinical milestones for patients and value creation for investors,” added Mr. Martell. “We want to show as soon as possible how briquilimab’s differentiated mechanism and therapeutic profile has the potential to overcome challenges encountered by other therapies in development for these indications. We also remain committed to exploring briquilimab’s long-term potential to become a leading antibody targeting c-Kit for use as a standalone therapy and as a conditioning agent to help reduce the toxicity of existing conditioning approaches for cell and gene therapies.”
About Briquilimab (formerly known as JSP191)
Briquilimab is a targeted, monoclonal antibody that inhibits the cell-surface receptor c-Kit, also known as CD117. It is currently being evaluated as a primary therapeutic for mast cell diseases such as chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU), chronic inducible urticaria (CIndU), and allergic asthma, and for lower-risk MDS patients. It is also being studied as a conditioning agent for cell and gene therapies for rare diseases. To date, briquilimab has a demonstrated efficacy and safety profile in 130 dosed subjects and healthy volunteers, with clinical outcomes as a conditioning agent in severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), Fanconi anemia (FA), and sickle cell disease (SCD). In addition, briquilimab is being advanced as a transformational non-genotoxic conditioning agent for gene therapy.
Jasper is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing novel antibody therapies and stem cell transplant conditioning agents targeting c-Kit (CD117), an important receptor found on stem cells and mast cells. The Company’s lead program is briquilimab, a first-in-class monoclonal antibody being developed as a therapeutic for chronic diseases and as a conditioning agent for stem cell transplants for rare diseases.
