About Eleven Biotherapeutics
Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. is a late-stage, clinical oncology company
advancing novel product candidates based upon the Company’s targeted
protein therapeutics (TPTs) platform. The Company’s TPTs incorporate a
tumor-targeting antibody fragment and a protein cytotoxic payload into a
single protein molecule in order to achieve focused tumor cell killing.
The Company believes its TPT approach offers significant advantages in
treating cancer over existing antibody drug conjugate technologies. The
Company believes its TPTs provide effective tumor targeting with broader
cancer cell-killing properties than are achievable with small molecule
payloads that require tumor cell proliferation and face multi-drug
resistant mechanisms. Additionally, the Company believes that its TPT’s
cancer cell-killing properties promote an anti-tumor immune response
that will potentially combine well with immune oncology drugs such as
checkpoint inhibitors. For more information, please refer to the
Company’s website at www.elevenbio.com.
