Two preclinical poster presentations will be made at the SITC 2022 Annual Meeting being held in Boston, November 8-12. These will include preclinical data on the JTX-1484 program, which targets LILRB4, and a characterization of the expression and function of LILRB receptors on human immune cells in tumor and blood samples across different cancer types. Two clinical poster presentations will be made at the ESMO-IO 2022 Annual Congress being held in Geneva, December 7-9. The submitted abstract for the JTX-8064 INNATE trial contains Phase 1 data, including safety, PK, and tumor response data. Jounce continues to expect to report preliminary clinical data on at least 80 Phase 2 patients from the INNATE trial by end of year 2022.

About Jounce Therapeutics: 
Jounce Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage immunotherapy company dedicated to transforming the treatment of cancer by developing therapies that enable the immune system to attack tumors and may provide long-lasting benefits to patients through a biomarker-driven approach. Jounce currently has multiple development stage programs ongoing while simultaneously advancing additional early-stage assets from its robust discovery engine based on its Translational Science Platform. Jounce’s highest priority program, JTX-8064, is a LILRB2 (ILT4) receptor antagonist shown to reprogram immune-suppressive tumor associated macrophages to an anti-tumor state in preclinical studies. JTX-8064 is currently being investigated alone and in combination with pimivalimab (formerly JTX-4014), Jounce’s internal PD-1 inhibitor, in one monotherapy and seven indication-specific combination therapy cohorts in the Phase 1/2 INNATE trial and is currently enrolling patients with advanced solid tumors in the Phase 2 portion of the study. Jounce’s most advanced product candidate, vopratelimab, is a monoclonal antibody that binds to and activates ICOS, and is currently being studied in the SELECT Phase 2 trial. Pimivalimab is a PD-1 inhibitor intended for combination use in the INNATE and SELECT trials and with Jounce’s broader pipeline. Additionally, Jounce exclusively licensed worldwide rights to GS-1811 (formerly JTX-1811), a monoclonal antibody targeting CCR8 and designed to selectively deplete T regulatory cells in the tumor microenvironment, to Gilead Sciences, Inc.
