    Immutep Operational Update

    AIPAC reaches ~72% of events and TACTI-002 recruitment is progressing wellNew data from TACTI-002 and INSIGHT-004 to be reported at ASCO in June 2021TACTI-003 clinical trial design enables evaluation of efti in 1st line recurrent or metastatic HNSCC patients to better understand its effect in combination with pembrolizumabRobust financial position with cash runway into calendar year 2023, beyond several significant data read-outs Sydney, AUSTRALIA, May 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immutep Limited (ASX: IMM; NASDAQ: IMMP) ("Immutep” or “the Company”), a biotechnology company developing novel LAG-3 related immunotherapy treatments for cancer and autoimmune disease, provides an update on its clinical and preclinical programs. Eftilagimod alpha (“efti”) Update AIPAC - Phase IIb clinical trialThe Company is on track to report final overall survival (OS) data from this metastatic breast cancer trial in H2 of calendar year 2021. Currently the trial has reached approximately 72% of events, indicating 72% of total patients with this late-stage cancer had been followed through until death. Immutep previously reported an improving OS trend from initial data from approximately 60% of events at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Conference in December 2020. TACTI-002 (also designated KEYNOTE-798) - Phase II clinical trialThe study is continuing to enroll 1st line non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients (Part A), with 54 patients out of up to 110 patients now enrolled and having received at least the first treatment. Immutep and its collaboration partner, Merck & Co. Inc, Kenilworth, NJ, USA (“MSD”) expanded Part A of the TACTI-002 study to up to 110 patients following the encouraging results presented at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer's (SITC) Congress in November 2020. Recruitment is also ongoing for patients with 2nd line NSCLC (Part B) which was expanded under the study’s Simon’s two-stage clinical trial design. Currently, 27 patients of a total of 36 patients have received the first treatment. In 2nd line head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC, Part C) the recruitment of patients is complete. Currently the recruitment of TACTI-002 is tracking well and new clinical data from TACTI-002 is planned to be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting (ASCO) 2021 (4-8 June). TACTI-003 – a Phase IIb Clinical Trial in 1st line Head and Neck CancerSubject to approval by relevant competent authorities, ethics committees and institutional review boards (IRBs), TACTI-003 will evaluate efti in combination with MSD’s KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) as a first line therapy in unresectable recurrent or metastatic HNSCC patients with PD-L1 negative and PD-L1 positive (CPS ≥1) tumors. It will be a randomized, controlled clinical study in approximately 154 first line HNSCC patients and will take place across Australia, Europe and the United States of America in up to 35 clinical sites. The study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of efti in combination with pembrolizumab, compared to pembrolizumab alone in 1st line metastatic or recurrent HNSCC patients with PD-L1 positive (CPS ≥1) tumors (cohort A), and determine the efficacy and safety of efti plus pembrolizumab in patients with PD-L1 negative tumors (CPS <1) (cohort B). According to the current plans about 130 patients in cohort A will be randomized 1:1 to receive either efti plus pembrolizumab or pembrolizumab alone. Subjects in cohort B (up to 24 patients) will receive a combination of efti and pembrolizumab. The primary endpoint of the study is the Overall Response Rate (ORR) according to RECIST 1.1. and iRECIST will be used for treatment decisions. Secondary endpoints include OS and Progression Free Survival (PFS). Following the grant of Fast Track designation for efti to treat 1st line HNSCC patients by the US FDA in early April 2021 and the appointment of a Contract Research Organisation (CRO), Immutep is on track to start the study in mid-2021. INSIGHT-004 - Phase I clinical trialThe INSIGHT-004 study is expected to deliver final data at ASCO 2021 in a poster discussion. INSIGHT-004 is the fourth arm of the INSIGHT trial (INSIGHT-004 is also known as Stratum D of INSIGHT) which is being conducted in collaboration with Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany and Pfizer Inc. IMP761 Update The Company has completed the selection of a high-producing CHO cell line for its IMP761 IgG4 mAb and is in the process of selecting a contract manufacturing organization (CMO) for GMP manufacturing of its preclinical candidate IMP761. Financial Update Immutep continues to be in a robust financial position with a cash runway into calendar year 2023, beyond the expected timing for several significant data read-outs from its trials.

    Immutep Quarterly Activities Report

    Highlights Safely dosed the last HNSCC patient for Stage 2 of Part C of the TACTI-002 Phase II study (also designated KEYNOTE-798)Initiated enrolment of first line NSCLC patients for the expansion arm of Part A of TACTI-002Commenced recruitment of second line NSCLC patients for Stage 2 of Part B of TACTI-002Advancement of the Phase II EAT COVID trial into the randomised portion of the studyRobust operational and financial position, with $51.7 million in cash as of 31 March 2021, providing cash runway beyond the end of calendar year 2022 Sydney, AUSTRALIA, April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immutep Limited (ASX: IMM; NASDAQ: IMMP) ("Immutep” or “the Company”), a biotechnology company developing novel immunotherapy treatments for cancer and autoimmune disease, provides an update on the ongoing development of its product candidates, eftilagimod alpha (“efti” or “IMP321”) and IMP761, and the activities of its partners for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. “We continue to lead the world in the development of different LAG-3 related therapies, with a robust pipeline of exciting clinical stage programs and promising data. Throughout the quarter ended 31 March 2021, we have been extremely active advancing and expanding upon these clinical programs, building upon our data generated last year” said Marc Voigt, CEO of Immutep. “We are well-positioned for long-term success, as we have a steady stream of positive data advancing our clinical studies, and decades of experience across our clinical team, which includes the discoverer of the LAG-3 immune control mechanism, as well as a strengthened balance sheet.” “There has recently been broad industry coverage of positive Phase II/III data from another company’s LAG-3 program to treat melanoma, which we’re pleased to say further validates targeting the LAG-3 pathway to enhance the immune response. While they have additional data to announce, what has been discussed to-date further supports our knowledge of the LAG-3 mechanism and is in line with our MSD collaboration to develop a combination of KEYTRUDA® with efti. This year is shaping up to be an exciting period for the clinical development of LAG-3 therapies,” added Dr. Frederic Triebel, CSO/CMO of Immutep. Efti Development Program Updates Intellectual PropertyImmutep recently further strengthened its IP profile for lead active immunotherapy candidate efti, which is a soluble LAG-3 fusion protein (LAG-3Ig). In particular, in March 2021, the United States Patent & Trademark Office granted a new patent number 10,940,181, which is entitled “Combined Preparations for the Treatment of Cancer or Infection”. The patent was filed as a divisional application and follows the grant of the parent patent announced on 30 December 2020. The claims of this new patent build on the protection provided by the parent patent and are patent protecting Immutep’s methods of treating cancer by administering efti and a PD-1 pathway inhibitor: either pembrolizumab (KEYTRUDA®) or nivolumab. The expiry date of the patent is 20 January 2036 (including a patent term adjustment of 12 days). TACTI-002 (Two Active Immunotherapies, also designated KEYNOTE-798) - Phase II clinical trial The TACTI-002 study is evaluating the combination of efti with KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab), the anti-PD-1 therapy from Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, NJ, USA (known as “MSD” outside the United States and Canada), in first and second line non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and second line head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). This study is being conducted in collaboration with MSD, which refers to the study as “Keynote-798”. Patients participate in one of three parts: Part A - First Line NSCLC, PD-X naiveRecruitment of an additional 74 first line NSCLC patients was initiated in accordance with Part A of the TACTI-002 collaboration trial expansion plans announced on 19 November 2020, adding to the 36 patients already enrolled prior to the expansion. Immutep and MSD expanded Part A of the TACTI-002 study following the encouraging results presented at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer's (SITC) Congress in November 2020. Part B - Second Line NSCLC, PD-X refractoryImmutep decided to expand Part B of TACTI-002, under the study’s Simon’s two-stage clinical trial design. The Company recently commenced recruitment of an additional 13 second line NSCLC patients, forming Stage 2 of Part B. The decision follows a preliminary safety and efficacy review by the Data Monitoring Committee and its recommendation, based on the patients recruited in Stage 1 of Part B. Part C - Second Line HNSCCThe last patient was safely dosed for Stage 2 of Part C of TACTI-002. This completes recruitment for Part C of the study. The Company continues to be excited by this study, as it recently announced encouraging interim data from TACTI-002 at the SITC 2020 Congress. Specifically, the data from second line HNSCC patients was very robust and forms an excellent basis for additional clinical development in this cancer type. Additional data from TACTI-002 is expected in H1 2021. TACTI-003 (Two Active Immunotherapies) - Phase IIb clinical trial - First Line HNSCCImmutep will also conduct a new randomised, controlled Phase IIb clinical study in approximately 160 first line HNSCC patients, which is a more commercially relevant indication than second line HNSCC. This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of efti when given in combination with MSD’s KEYTRUDA®, compared to KEYTRUDA® alone. TACTI-003 will be executed in 20+ clinical sites in the United States, Australia and Europe, and study is expected to start in mid-2021. This is Immutep’s second collaboration with MSD for a combination of KEYTRUDA® and efti. EAT COVID - Phase II clinical trialThe investigator-initiated Phase II clinical trial being conducted by the University Hospital Pilsen in the Czech Republic advanced from the safety run and into the randomised portion of the study, which is evaluating efti in up to 110 hospitalised patients with COVID-19. In January 2021 Immutep reported that the independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) had completed a safety run-in data review of the first six patients from the Phase II clinical trial of Eftilagimod Alpha Treatment by immune modulation in COVID-19 disease (EAT COVID). Following this data review, the DSMB recommended that the study advance with enrolment for the randomised portion of the study. All six patients (age range, 50-83 years; 2 women and 4 men) received the three planned 10 mg efti injections and were since discharged from hospital with no adverse events reported. Partner Updates GlaxoSmithKline As announced in January 2021, GSK stopped its Phase II clinical trial evaluating GSK2831781 (derived from Immutep’s IMP731 antibody) in ulcerative colitis based on the assessment of clinical data as part of a planned interim analysis conducted in consultation with the trial’s Data Review Committee. Immutep’s collaboration with GSK remains in place and GSK2831781 continues to be under an exclusive license with GSK. Other PartnersSelected for its in-depth LAG-3 expertise and knowledge, Immutep entered into a Licence and Collaboration Agreement with Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings, known as LabCorp, to support its development of immuno-oncology products or services in October 2020. LabCorp co-authored with Bristol Myers Squibb an abstract released in March 2021 on the distribution and prevalence of LAG-3 expression in samples of melanoma and gastric/gastroesophageal junction cancer for the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2021. Immutep’s other licensing partnerships with Novartis, EOC Pharma and CYTLIMIC continue to progress well. Financial Summary - Q3 FY21 Cash receipts from customers for the quarter was $59k, compared to $336k in Q2 (i.e. the quarter ended 31 December 2020). The net cash used in G&A activities in the quarter was $242k compared to $1.82 million in Q2. The significant decrease compared with last quarter is mainly due to the prepayment of certain annual expenses in Q2. G&A costs for the quarter includes $125k in payment of Non-Executive Director’s fees and Executive Director’s remuneration. The net cash used in Research and Development activities in the quarter was $1.74 million, compared to $3.18 million in Q2. Year to date cash flow used in R&D activities for the 9 months from July 2020 to March 2021 was $7.0 million compared to $16.1 million for the 9 months from July 2019 to March 2020. The decline is mainly due to the declining AIPAC expenses since patients in the AIPAC Phase IIb clinical trial have completed the treatment and moved into the follow-up phase. The cash used in R&D activities is expected to increase with the commencement of the new Phase IIb TACTI-003 clinical trial. Total net cash outflows used in operating activities in the quarter was $3.05 million. In comparison, total net cash outflows from operating activities in Q2 was $5.58 million. The cash and cash equivalent balance as at 31 March 2021 was $51.7 million compared to a balance of $54.9 million as at 31 December 2020. Immutep is in an excellent financial position with a cash runway into calendar year 2023 and beyond several significant data read-outs.
