MIF is a pleiotropic cytokine involved in tumor proliferation, invasiveness, angiogenesis, and proinflammation of the microenvironment. oxMIF is the pathogenic form mainly found in tumor and its surrounding stroma. Imalumab (Bax69) is a novel recombinant, fully human, monoclonal antibody targeting oxMIF. Preclinical data demonstrated imalumab has antitumor activity and acceptable toxicity. Here we present the results of the Phase I study in patients with advanced solid tumors (mCRC subset), which completed accrual and the preliminary results of the ongoing phase IIa study of imalumab in patients with mCRC (data cut-off, 19 Feb 2016).
