Immunome

EXTON, PA — Immunome, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMNM) recently reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021, and provided a corporate update.

“We made strong progress during Q2 in the development of IMM-BCP-01, our antibody cocktail to combat SARS-CoV-2. We finalized the selection of antibodies for the cocktail, secured increased funding for the program from the Department of Defense, and demonstrated IMM-BCP-01’s potent neutralization activity against all SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern, including the Delta variant, in preclinical testing. We believe we are well-positioned for an IND filing for this program in the third quarter,” said Purnanand Sarma, Ph.D., President and CEO of Immunome.

“We have continued to strengthen the company through a number of executive and non-executive appointments, in addition to a successful fundraising. We believe these activities set us up for value-creating events in the near-term, including a planned IND filing for our IL-38 immuno-oncology program in the fourth quarter. I look forward to updating you further on our progress in the coming months.”
