About Nemvaleukin

Nemvaleukin alfa (nemvaleukin) is a novel, engineered cytokine designed to leverage antitumor effects of the IL-2 pathway while mitigating its hallmark toxicities that limit its use. Nemvaleukin selectively binds to the intermediate-affinity IL-2 receptor (IL-2R) and is sterically occluded from binding to the high-affinity IL-2R. Because of this molecular design, nemvaleukin treatment leads to preferential expansion of antitumor CD8+ T cells and natural killer cells, with minimal expansion of immunosuppressive regulatory T cells. Nemvaleukin is currently being evaluated in two potentially registrational trials in platinum resistant ovarian cancer and mucosal melanoma.

A newly recommended phase 2 dose of nemvaleukin (infusions on days 1 and 8 per three-week dosing cycle) will be explored in monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with cutaneous melanoma as part of the ARTISTRY-6 trial.
