    Immunocore Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Provides Business Update

    Immunocore Holdings plc (Nasdaq: IMCR), a late-stage biotechnology company pioneering the development of a novel class of T cell receptor (TCR) bispecific immunotherapies designed to treat a broad range of diseases, including cancer, infectious and autoimmune disease, today announced its financial results for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2021 and provides a portfolio update.

    Immunocore’s recent and second quarter highlights include the acceleration of tebentafusp regulatory submissions in the EU and UK; continued dose escalation of MAGE-A4 and PRAME targeting ImmTACs®; and the initiation of a single ascending dose trial for its ImmTAV® bispecific molecule for chronic hepatitis B (HBV).

    Bahija Jallal, Chief Executive Officer of Immunocore, said: “The team at Immunocore is focused on bringing our pioneering science to patients as quickly as possible.  We remain on track to complete the tebentafusp BLA submission in the US in the third quarter and are pleased to have accelerated our submissions in Europe, while also initiating our global early access program to make tebentafusp available to patients who need it now.”

    “With the positive phase 3 results for tebentafusp in metastatic uveal melanoma, we now have demonstrated the first ever overall survival benefit for any TCR therapeutic,” said David Berman, Head of Research and Development. “Our Phase 1 programs targeting MAGE-A4 and PRAME continue to dose escalate, with both now at biologically active doses. The start of our first clinical trial in chronic hepatitis B further highlights our confidence in the potential of our ImmTAX platform across a broad range of indications including cancer and infectious disease.”
