AC Immune Reports First Quarter 2023 Financial Results and Provides a Corporate Update
Lausanne, Switzerland, April 28, 2023 – AC Immune SA (NASDAQ: ACIU), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering precision medicine for neurodegenerative diseases, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, and provided a corporate update.
Dr. Andrea Pfeifer, CEO of AC Immune SA, commented: “Recent accomplishments reaffirm our industry-leading position in developing vaccines and diagnostics for neurodegenerative diseases supporting the transition to targeted treatment and disease prevention. Our maturing pipeline’s substantial breadth offers multiple milestones in the near- and mid-term and we have the strong cash position needed to deliver them.”
“We are delighted to see our Tau positron emission tomography (PET) tracer PI-2620 progress into the pivotal Phase 3 ADvance trial, with our partner, LMI. Similarly, we are excited by the initial positive data from the Phase 1b/2 ABATE trial of ACI-24.060 and the expansion as planned, to include individuals with Down syndrome. The trial is now advancing towards additional interim safety and immunogenicity data in both indications this year, as well as PET imaging analyses in H1 2024 that will evaluate ACI-24.060’s impact on amyloid plaques. With amyloid PET increasingly recognized as a surrogate marker of efficacy in AD, these analyses represent a significant potential de-risking event that could rapidly propel our wholly-owned vaccine towards a pivotal program.”
