BOSTON, March 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Elevation Oncology, Inc. (Nasdaq: ELEV), an innovative oncology company focused on the discovery and development of selective cancer therapies to treat patients across a range of solid tumors with significant unmet medical need, today announced that it will present preclinical proof-of-concept data for its differentiated HER3-targeting antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) program in a poster session at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2024, being held April 5-10 in San Diego, California.

"We are excited to share preclinical proof-of-concept data for our HER3-ADC program. HER3 is a clinically validated oncology and ADC target, which is overexpressed across a range of solid tumors, and is often associated with a poor clinical outcome," said David Dornan, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Elevation Oncology. "At AACR, we plan to share preclinical proof-of-concept data highlighting our progress towards the development of a differentiated HER3-ADC. We look forward to nominating a development candidate this year and to the advancement of our HER3-ADC program toward the clinic, with the goal of improving patient outcomes."

Details of the poster presentation at AACR 2024 are as follows:

Title: Therapeutic potential of a HER3 antibody-drug conjugate for the treatment of HER3-expressing cancers

  • Abstract: #3121

  • Session Date and Time: Monday, April 8, from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. PT

About Elevation Oncology, Inc.
Elevation Oncology is an innovative oncology company focused on the discovery and development of selective cancer therapies to treat patients across a range of solid tumors with significant unmet medical needs. We are rethinking drug development by seeking out innovative, selective cancer therapies that can be matched to a patient's unique tumor characteristics. Our lead candidate, EO-3021, is a potential best-in-class antibody drug conjugate (ADC) designed to target Claudin 18.2, a clinically validated oncology target. EO-3021 selectively delivers a cytotoxic payload directly to cancer cells expressing Claudin 18.2. We are evaluating EO-3021 in a Phase 1 study in patients with advanced, unresectable or metastatic solid tumors likely to express Claudin 18.2 including gastric, gastroesophageal junction, pancreatic or esophageal cancers. We are also exploring other opportunities through new or existing partnerships and business development opportunities to expand our oncology pipeline.
