Innovent Biologics, Inc. announced that the first patient has been successfully enrolled and dosed in the randomized, double-blind, phase 2 multi-center clinical trial (NCT04590599) evaluating its IBI310 (anti CTLA-4 monoclonal antibody) in combination with TYVYT® (sintilimab injection) for the treatment of patients with second-line or above advanced cervical cancer.

 Dr. Hui Zhou, Vice President and Head of Medical Sciences and Oncology Strategy of Innovent, stated: "CTLA-4 is an important immunosuppressive receptor. Currently, only one antibody drug targeting CTLA-4 has been approved and marketed globally, though lots of clinical trials on CTLA-4 targeted drugs have been conducted."

"So far there is no CTLA-4 targeted drug approved in China. With the most advanced progress in clinical development in China, IBI310 in combination with TYVYT® (sintilimab injection) has shown promising preliminary anti-tumor potential value. We will evaluate the efficacy of IBI310 combined with TYVYT® (sintilimab injection) in the phase II trial and we hope to provide more effective treatment to benefit patients and their families.”
