– Company plans to highlight preclinical proof-of-concept data for EO-3021 in an oral presentation at the New Drugs on the Horizon special session
NEW YORK, March 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Elevation Oncology, Inc. (Nasdaq: ELEV), an innovative oncology company focused on the discovery and development of selective cancer therapies to treat patients across a range of solid tumors with significant unmet medical needs, today announced that preclinical proof-of-concept data for EO-3021 will be highlighted in an oral presentation at the New Drugs on the Horizon special session at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2023, being held April 14-19, 2023 in Orlando, Florida. A poster highlighting the preclinical data for EO-3021, a potential best-in-class antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) designed to target Claudin 18.2, will also be presented at the conference.
"The oral presentation at this year’s AACR New Drugs on the Horizon session is an exciting opportunity for Elevation Oncology to showcase preclinical data for EO-3021 as a potential best-in-class ADC targeting solid tumors expressing Claudin 18.2.," said David Dornan, Chief Scientific Officer of Elevation Oncology. "In addition, we look forward to presenting the preclinical data in more detail in a poster session at AACR and remain on track to initiate a U.S. Phase 1 clinical trial evaluating EO-3021 during the second half of 2023."
Elevation Oncology will also present two posters on NRG1 fusions, including updated data from the Phase 2 CRESTONE study evaluating seribantumab in patients with solid tumors harboring NRG1 fusions. Elevation Oncology announced in January 2023 that it has paused enrollment in the Phase 2 CRESTONE study and further investment in seribantumab, pending entering a partnership.

About Elevation Oncology, Inc.
Elevation Oncology is an innovative oncology company focused on the discovery and development of selective cancer therapies to treat patients across a range of solid tumors with significant unmet medical needs. We are rethinking drug development by seeking out innovative, selective cancer therapies that can be matched to a patient’s unique tumor characteristics. Our lead candidate, EO-3021, is a potential best-in-class antibody drug conjugate (ADC) designed to target Claudin 18.2, a clinically validated molecular target. EO-3021 selectively delivers a cytotoxic payload directly to cancer cells expressing Claudin 18.2. We are working to rapidly advance EO-3021 into the clinic in the US across a range of solid tumor indications, as well as exploring other opportunities through new or existing partnerships and business development opportunities to expand our novel oncology pipeline.
