IconOVir Bio to Present Preclinical Data on Lead Candidate ICVB-1042 at SITC 2022

SAN DIEGO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IconOVir Bio, Inc. (IconOVir), a preclinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering the next generation of oncolytic virus (OV) therapy to improve the treatment of patients with cancer, today announced that it will present preclinical data on ICVB-1042 in three poster presentations at the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC 2022), which is being held in Boston, MA and virtually from November 8-12, 2022.

ICVB-1042, IconOVir’s lead product candidate, is a potent, replicative and systemically available OV. In preclinical studies, ICVB-1042 demonstrated superior potency and selectivity compared to wildtype adenovirus (Ad) and other clinical-stage Ad-based oncolytic viruses, with potent lytic replication in cancer cell lines across a broad range of tumor types. IconOVir is developing both intravenous (IV) and intratumoral (IT) formulations of ICVB-1042 and plans to advance into Phase 1 studies evaluating IV-administered ICVB-1042 in solid tumors in the first half of 2023.

Details of the poster presentations are as follows:
