Interview Questions

Please tell me the history of how TALON was discovered and came to be core to the Pandion Story.

  • What about the TALON approach that makes it possible for therapies to be more effective than traditional Anti-Cytokines & Kinase Inhibitors?

Why have you chosen UC for the first indication for PT101?

Added By: joe_mccann

There are other companies working on IL-2 Muteins. Can you walk me through what differentiates your molecule? Is there a ceiling on how much Tregs should be boosted, or is the main objective selectivity?

Added By: joe_mccann

What are the key things to look for in the Phase 1a trial reading out early 2021. It is safety focused, so will be able to interpret anything about efficacy from it?

  • Have any of the competitive approaches released data in healthy volunteers like this? What is the relationship between their Preclinical results and their Phase 1a?
  • Is there anything known to be unique about the biology of healthy volunteers that may not translate to patients with auto-immune disorders?

Added By: joe_mccann

What sort of pace for additional indications should investor anticipate if the early proof of concept trials workout? At what point do you view the TALON platform as being derisked meaningfully across auto-immune diseases?

Added By: joe_mccann

Is UC unique as an autoimmune disease or does success there have a high chance of translating to other indications?

Added By: joe_mccann

Does success by competitors in other indications likely push you towards developing drugs in those because of proof of concept, or away due to crowdedness?

Added By: joe_mccann

What are the data readouts associated with your IND enabling work for PT-001 and PT-627 in 2021 we should look out for?

Added By: joe_mccann

Will the Phase 2 and Phase 3 trials for UC look similar to the types of trials ran for approved Anti-Cytokines & Kinase Inhibitors in terms of patient numbers, duration, etc?

Added By: joe_mccann

Does your tether technology present a partnering platform opportunity? Does this ability to hone to a specific tissue present a drug delivery potential, or will you likely keep all indications in house at least through proof of concept?

Added By: joe_mccann

Can you tether for lung and cardiac specific delivery?

Added By: sunshinebiomh

How is PT-627 differentiated from competitors and is there available clinical data supporting the use of PD-1 agonists in autoimmune diseases?
