Item 8.01 Other Events.
On October 3, 2019, Aptevo announced its decision to discontinue further development of APVO210, a novel investigational bispecific antibody candidate under development for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. The decision followed the review of data from the Phase 1 multiple ascending dose (MAD) clinical study of APVO210 in healthy volunteers that suggests that APVO210 would not meet the desired target product profile for future commercialization. Specifically, the clinical data showed evidence of increasing titers of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) with repeated doses of APVO210, which had varying impact on APVO210 drug levels in subjects blood.
