TSLP antibodies have recently gained significant attention in the medical and pharmaceutical communities. These antibodies have shown potential in addressing various inflammatory and allergic conditions, driven by their promising efficacy data and the unmet medical needs they aim to fulfill.

Several companies and research groups are actively exploring TSLP antibodies, with notable developments including:

  • AstraZeneca and Amgen have developed Tezepelumab, the first-in-class anti-TSLP monoclonal antibody approved for severe asthma treatment.
  • Johnson & Johnson acquired Proteologix to access its bispecific antibody targeting TSLP and IL-13.
  • Blackstone has launched Uniquity to advance Merck’s Phase 2 high potency TSLP antibody.
  • Innovent Biologics is conducting a Phase I study on IBI3002, a dual-function antibody targeting both IL-4Rα and TSLP.
  • Sanofi and Regeneron are developing SAR443765, a novel biologic targeting both TSLP and IL-13 for asthma.
  • Teva Pharmaceuticals and Biolojic Design have entered into an exclusive license agreement to develop bispecific antibodies targeting TSLP and IL-13.
  • GSK recently acquired Aiolos Bio for $1 billion upfront to enhance its respiratory biologics portfolio with AIO-001, a Phase 2 long-acting anti-TSLP monoclonal antibody.

These strategic moves underscore the growing interest in TSLP antibodies for treating a wide range of inflammatory and allergic conditions. Perseus Therapeutics is poised to contribute to this dynamic field with its innovative approach to preventing hair loss in cancer patients, a common and distressing side effect of cancer treatments, and addressing other inflammatory diseases.

“Perseus Therapeutics is committed to advancing the science of TSLP antibodies to meet critical unmet medical needs,” said Joseph Hernandez, Chairman and Founder of Perseus Therapeutics. “Our work aims not only to improve the quality of life for cancer patients by preventing hair loss but also to provide effective treatments for various inflammatory conditions.”
