LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2022 — Immix Biopharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMMX) (“ImmixBio”, “Company”, “we” or “us”), a biopharmaceutical company pioneering Tissue-Specific Therapeutics (TSTx)™ targeting oncology and immuno-dysregulated diseases, today announced that it has initiated Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) manufacturing of IMX-120, a biologic for inflammatory bowel disease (“IBD”). ImmixBio anticipates filing an IND for IMX-120 in 2023, representing a significant milestone on ImmixBio’s path to clinical trials for IMX-120 in inflammatory bowel disease. The IBD market is expected to reach $21.4 billion by 2024 from the existing $18.4 billion in 2019.
IMX-120 is a Tissue-Specific Biologic™ built on ImmixBio’s Immune Normalization Technology™ for IBD with proprietary GLUT1 antibody and other proprietary targeting coupled with polyphenol poly-kinase inhibitors. IMX-120 takes advantage of the fact that overexpression and activation of GLUT1 on overactive immune cells has been shown to be widely present in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. IMX-120 is the latest drug candidate to initiate GMP manufacturing produced by ImmixBio’s SMARxT Tissue-Specific Platform.
“Initiating GMP manufacturing of IMX-120 represents a wholly new phase of development for ImmixBio as a biologics innovator,” said Ilya Rachman, MD PhD, CEO of ImmixBio. “We believe this step is the beginning of a path toward a Biologics License Application (“BLA”) for IMX-120 in inflammatory bowel disease, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.”
About Immix Biopharma, Inc.
Immix Biopharma, Inc. (ImmixBio™) (Nasdaq: IMMX) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering a novel class of Tissue-Specific Therapeutics (TSTx)™ targeting oncology and immuno-dysregulated diseases. Our lead asset IMX-110, currently in Phase 1b/2a clinical trials, holds orphan drug designation (ODD) by the FDA for soft tissue sarcoma, and has received Rare Pediatric Disease Designation (RPDD) for the treatment of rhabdomyosarcoma, a life-threatening form of cancer in children. RPDD qualifies ImmixBio to receive fast track review and a priority review voucher (PRV) at the time of marketing approval of IMX-110. Our proprietary SMARxT Tissue-Specific™ Platform produces drug candidates that circulate in the bloodstream, exit through tumor blood vessels and simultaneously attack all 3 components of the tumor micro-environment (TME). We believe ImmixBio’s TME Normalization™ technology severs the lifelines between the tumor and its metabolic and structural support. Learn more at www.immixbio.com .
