World News: . []

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Jounce Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNCE), a clinical-stage company focused on the discovery and development of novel cancer immunotherapies and predictive biomarkers, today announced that data from its ongoing Phase 1/2 ICONIC trial, an adaptive design, open label trial evaluating JTX-2011 monotherapy and in combination with nivolumab, will be the subject of an oral presentation at the upcoming 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL on June 1-5, 2018. The abstract published today online reflects data as of January 27, 2018 and updated results will be presented on June 2, 2018.

Jounce has met its target enrollment for the Phase 1/2 ICONIC trial in its combination cohorts across four solid tumor types: gastric cancer, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with most patients completing at least one efficacy assessment. Updated results, including preliminary efficacy data on all evaluable patients in the trial, will be presented at ASCO.

“The preliminary data from patients across multiple solid tumor types enrolled in the ICONIC trial show that JTX-2011 is well-tolerated alone and in combination with nivolumab and has demonstrated evidence of biologic activity and tumor reductions in heavily pre-treated patients who have failed all available therapies. In addition, a potential surrogate biomarker of response has been identified that may help to guide JTX-2011 development,” said Elizabeth Trehu, M.D., chief medical officer of Jounce Therapeutics. “We look forward to continuing clinical development of JTX-2011.”

Full session details and data presentation at the 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting can be found at .

At the presentation, Jounce will provide longer-term follow-up from patients included in the abstract as well as preliminary efficacy data on all evaluable patients in the trial as of an April 4, 2018 cut-off date. This includes data from tumor specific cohorts in gastric cancer, TNBC, HNSCC, NSCLC and other solid tumors. Phase 1 and 2 monotherapy and combination safety data in all patients will be presented, as well as biomarker information on ICOS expression including the emergence of an ICOS high peripheral blood T cell population. Initial Phase 1 safety, PK and PD were previously reported at the 2017 ASCO Annual Meeting.
