 TST001 is a recombinant humanized IgG1 antibody specifically against human Claudin18.2 (CLDN18.2) with high affinity and enhanced FcR engaging of NK cell.

 In vivo pharmacology of TST001 in gastric PDX tumor model with CLDN18.2 medium expression: TST001 dose dependently inhibits tumor growth, TST001 exhibits more potent antitumor activity than IMAB362-analog at the same dose (10mg/kg), and more mice reached tumor complete regression.

 TST001 monotherapy dose-escalation study has been completed in China and promising anti-tumor activities were observed in patients with advanced G/GEJC with CLDN18.2 expression who had failed multiple lines of prior therapies.

Conclusion and Future Directions for Research:

 TST001 in combination with CAPOX as the first line treatment of patients with advanced and metastatic G/GEJ cancer is well tolerated and encouraging preliminary anti-tumor activities have been observed.

 The recruitment for the current cohort is ongoing and the safety and efficacy of the combination of TST001+CAPOX as first line treatment for patients with advanced and metastatic G/GEJ cancer will be further evaluated.
