Abstract 2661

Background

Tumor stroma represents 20-60% of solid tumor mass and plays a key role in promotion, invasiveness and metastasis. FAP-expressing CAFs, the predominant stroma cell type, are involved in tumor immune response. A novel antibody-drug conjugate, OMTX705, was generated through CYS-based conjugation of a new anti-FAP humanized antibody to a novel cytolysin using an optimized vcPABA linker.

Methods

In vivo studies were performed in patient-derived xenograft models for NSCL cancer in humanized mice. Tumor volume and animal weight were monitored over 4-week treatment with OMTX705 administered intravenously at different doses, alone or combined with Pembrolizumab. FACS and IHC analysis of markers for immune cells, CAFs, and cell proliferation or apoptosis, were performed on tumor samples to study OMTX705 effect on tumor stroma and elucidate its mechanism of action. In vitro assays were performed to support in vivo data. OMTX705 stability in blood was determined after i.v administration in CD1 mice.

Results

OMTX705 showed 100% tumor growth inhibition and higher activity than Pembrolizumab in the humanized PDX model for NSCL cancer without weight loss. Full tumor regression was found in 10% of mice treated with OMTX705 alone and 20% in combination with Pembrolizumab. A significant delay in tumor recurrence was observed. OMTX705 was 100% stable in bloodstream after 7 days. FACS analysis evidenced a significant increase in CD8(+) T cell tumor infiltration. Results from in vitro studies and IHC analysis of tumors identified CAFs as highly specific reservoir cells for OMTX705 from which the high potent cytolysin payload is released to induce apoptosis of adjacent tumor cells and CD8(+) T cell immunomodulation.

Conclusions

OMTX705 alone induces tumor shrinkage, and full regression with Pembrolizumab, through highly specific, CAF-dependent and long-lasting modulation of tumor stroma. This novel mechanism of action makes OMTX705 a potent and innovative strategy for NSCL cancer treatment. Considering FAP is expressed in a wide array of carcinomas, OMTX705 represents a highly promising and well-tolerated candidate to treat solid tumors with low response to anti-PD1 immunotherapies.
