Under the Phase I clinical study, the tolerance, safety and primary efficacy of the company's IBI101, either as monotherapy or in combination with Tyvyt (sintilimab injection), an anti-programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) antibody, will be evaluated.

The company added that the Phase I clinical trial comprises two parts: a Phase Ia study with IBI101 as monotherapy and a Phase Ib study with IBI101 in combination with Tyvyt. The patients with advanced solid tumors who have failed standard treatments will be enrolled in the study.

The IND application of IBI101 was approved by the US FDA in 2018.
