AIM ImmunoTech Announces First Dose Level is Generally Well-Tolerated in Phase 1b/2 Study of Ampligen and Imfinzi as a Combination Therapy for Late-Stage Pancreatic Cancer

Next safety cohort to begin escalated dosing soon

OCALA, Fla., April 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AIM ImmunoTech Inc. (NYSE American: AIM) (“AIM” or the “Company”) today announced that it has taken an essential step forward in testing the combination of AIM’s Ampligen® (rintatolimod) and AstraZeneca’s anti-PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibitor Imfinzi® (durvalumab) in the treatment of late-stage pancreatic cancer (the “DURIPANC” study). See: NCT05927142.

Investigators at Erasmus Medical Center ("Erasmus MC") in the Netherlands have completed the safety evaluation of patients enrolled in the first dose level of the dose escalation design in the Phase 1b/2 study. The combination of Ampligen and Imfinzi was found to be generally well-tolerated with no severe adverse events (“SAE”) or dose-limiting toxicities (“DLT”).

Based on these positive results, escalation to the next dose will occur according to protocol design and AIM expects the next cohort of patients to begin dosing very soon. Subjects will be in treatment for up to 48 weeks, or until confirmed disease progression or another discontinuation criterion is met. They will be monitored for response according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (“RECIST 1.1”).
