THIO Is A First-In-Class Cancer Therapeutic With A Dual Mechanism Of Action. MAIA Biotechnology is in Phase 2 development with THIO, a drug directed at the telomeres of cancer cell chromosomes. These are structures at the distal tips of the chromosomes that protect the coding DNA regions and have functions needed for DNA replication. THIO is a modified nucleoside analogue that targets the chromosome’s telomeres, leading to cell death, and stimulates the immune system to attack remaining cancer cells.
THIO Is Phase 2 With A Checkpoint Inhibitor. The direct killing and stimulation of an immune response increases the number of immune killing cells in the tumor that can attack remaining cancer cells. Preclinical studies testing THIO in combination with checkpoint inhibitors showed complete killing and long-term durability of its effects. The current Phase 2 clinical trial program is testing THIO in combination with Libtayo, a PD-1 inhibitor from Regeneron, in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
