PIPELINE

Antapodia Therapeutics uses next-generation lipid nanoparticles (nLNPs) to deliver Master Invadopodial Regulator (MIR)-targeted small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) or base editors to invasive cancer cells to inhibit their invadopodia formation (Figure 1). The company's first-in-class anti-invadopodia cancer gene therapy, AP-01, specifically targets MIR-01 to inhibit invadopodial biogenesis, thereby halting cancer spreading and metastasis. Antapodia Therapeutics also developed a first-in-class invadopodia-targeted monoclonal antibody AP-03, which specifically blocks the invadopodia-surface protein MIR-03. The company has completed a series of POM and POC studies to demonstrate the remarkable anti-tumor and anti-metastasis efficacy of these novel and powerful invadopodia-targeted anti-cancer therapeutics.

AP-01 is fabricated by formulating MIR-01-targeted siRNAs using next-generation lipid nanoparticles (LNPs). When delivered to tumors through intravenous (IV) or intratumoral (IT) injections, the loaded LNP diffuses into tumors through the enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect, which is then internalized by cancer cells followed by the release of the siRNAs, thereby inhibiting the expression of MIR-01 and crippling invadopodial biogenesis and cancer cell invasiveness. The combined administration of liver-blocking liposomes can “mask” Kupffer cells in the liver, enhancing the bioavailability of these LNP gene-therapeutics in non-liver and metastatic cancers
