Exscientia outlines positive financials 

Occupier Exscientia, a full stack AI drug discovery company, has shared its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2023, showcasing a positive outlook to move forward in its work. 

Dr David Hallett, interim CEO and CSO at Exscientia, said: “In 2023, we significantly expanded our technological capabilities with the opening of our automation facility, concentrated our internal research on high value oncology targets and steadily progressed multiple new and existing programmes with our large pharma partners.

Promising data for Summit Therapeutics 

Summit Therapeutics, based at Milton Park, has announced promising results for its novel, potential first-in-class investigational bispecific antibody, ivonescimab. 

Whether used with chemotherapy or alone, both cohorts of patients experienced an intracranial response rate of 34%, with 23% experiencing a complete response by RANO criteria.  

All patients who did not achieve a response demonstrated stable disease or non-progression. 

Dr H. Jack West, Vice President of Clinical Development for Summit Therapeutics, commented: “We are pleased to see ivonescimab’s favourable intracranial response rates and median intracranial progression-free survival, as well as promising anti-tumour activity and safety profile in the subgroup of patients with brain metastases from NSCLC.  

“We are grateful for the patients and clinical investigators supporting these trials, and our ongoing collaboration with our partners at Akeso.”
