ABOUT ITEOS THERAPEUTICS

iTeos Therapeutics is a publicly-held (NASDAQ: ITOS), clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to extending and improving the lives of cancer patients by designing and developing next generation immunotherapies. 

Based in Gosselies, Belgium and Cambridge, MA, iTeos Therapeutics was founded out of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR) and the de Duve Institute (UCLouvain) in 2011.

In March 2020, the Company completed a $125 million Series B2 financing, and in July 2020, we completed our IPO raising over $200million of  proceeds.

This additional capital will allow us to continue to develop our clinical pipeline and maintain our investments in our discovery research team to leverage its fantastic science to improve the lives of cancer patients.

The innovative pipeline includes two clinical-stage programs targeting novel, validated immuno-oncology pathways. EOS-850, is designed as a highly selective small molecule antagonist of the adenosine A2a receptor, a key driver of immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment across a broad range of tumors. EOS-850 is being investigated in an open-label Phase 1/2a clinical trial in adult patients with advanced solid tumors.

The lead antibody product candidate, EOS-448, is an antagonist of TIGIT, also designed to engage the Fc gamma receptor (FcγR). An open-label Phase 1/2a clinical trial of EOS-448 is currently ongoing in adult patients with advanced solid tumors.
