About ACR246

ACR246, developed independently by Adcoris, is an ADC targeting 5T4 which is highly expressed in a variety of solid tumors, with a novel TOP1 inhibitor as its payload and a stable and tumor microenvironment (TME) cleavable linker. In vivo efficacy of ACR246 significantly exceeded that of 5T4-Dxd ADC in all of the more than 10 tumor models tested. ACR246 is expected to initiate first in human clinical study in the first quarter of 2024, and is expected to become the best in its class and the world's first commercially available ADC drug against 5T4 targets.
