About SD-101

SD-101, the subject of AACR abstracts CT047, 2322 and 4985, is Dynavax's proprietary, second-generation, CpG-C class oligodeoxynucleotide TLR 9 agonist. SD-101 activates multiple anti-tumor mechanisms of innate immune cells and activates plasmacytoid dendritic cells to stimulate T cells specific for antigens released from dying tumor cells. TLR9 agonists such as SD-101 enhance T and B cell responses and induce high levels of Type I interferons and maturation of plasmacytoid dendritic cells and B cells. SD-101 is being evaluated in several Phase 1/2 oncology studies to assess its preliminary safety and activity.
