Translating the Preclinical Pharmacology of the Select TLR8 Agonist VTX-2337, into Clinical Activity using Myriad RBM’s InflammationMAP
VTX-2337 is a selective TLR8 agonist that activates myeloid dendritic cells, monocytes and NK cells to produce both chemokines and Th1 polarizing cytokines. Prior to the conduct of clinical studies in cancer patients, the Myriad RBM InflammationMAP® was used to compare the potency of VTX-2337 on human and non-human primate leukocyte populations, and define pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationship in cynomolgus monkeys. This characterization defined potential clinical biomarkers of VTX-2337 activity and established a Minimal Anticipated Biological Effect Level (MABEL) for the initial clinical trial.
