About Candel Therapeutics

Candel is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing off-the-shelf multimodal biological immunotherapies that elicit an individualized, systemic anti-tumor immune response to help patients fight cancer. Candel has established two clinical stage multimodal biological immunotherapy platforms based on novel, genetically, modified adenovirus and herpes simplex virus (HSV) gene constructs, respectively.

CAN-2409 is the lead product candidate from the adenovirus platform and is currently in ongoing clinical trials in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (phase 2), borderline resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (phase 2), and localized, non-metastatic prostate cancer (phase 2 and phase 3). The Company recently announced encouraging overall survival data for CAN-2409 in both pancreatic cancer and NSCLC. CAN-2409 received Fast Track Designation from the FDA for prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, and NSCLC as well as Orphan Drug Designation in pancreatic cancer. Topline data are expected for both the phase 2b (active surveillance population) and the phase 3 (intermediate-to-high-risk prostate cancer) randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials in localized prostate cancer in Q4 2024.

CAN-3110 is the lead product candidate from the HSV platform and is currently in an ongoing phase 1b clinical trial in recurrent high-grade glioma (rHGG). Clinical activity and biomarker data were published in Nature in October 2023. CAN-3110 received Fast Track Designation as well as Orphan Drug Designation from the FDA for recurrent high-grade glioma. The Company expects sharing further clinical updates in the second half of 2024.

Finally, Candel’s enLIGHTEN™ Discovery Platform is a systematic, HSV-based discovery platform leveraging human biology and advanced analytics to create new viral immunotherapies for solid tumors. During the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 2023 Annual Meeting, the Company presented encouraging data on the first immunotherapy candidate from this platform, Alpha 201-macro-1, which was designed to interfere with the CD47/SIRP1α pathway, in mouse models of breast cancer and lung cancer. During the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in April 2024, the Company presented preclinical data on its immunotherapy candidate for induction of tertiary lymphoid structures (TLS), being developed as a novel therapeutic strategy for solid tumors, its second candidate from the enLIGHTEN™ Discovery Platform.
