The ROCK® (Redirected Optimized Cell Killing) platform allows for a modular approach to generating customizable ICE® (innate cell engager) molecules. High-affinity ICE® (innate cell engager) molecules, which are created using the ROCK® platform, are capable of bivalent NK-cell binding via CD16A without inducing nonspecific NK-cell activation or cell fratricide. The bivalent interaction of our ICE® (innate cell engager) molecules with CD16A increases NK-cell activation and antitumor activity. ICE® (innate cell engager) molecules with a tetravalent, bispecific structure may stimulate increased tumor-cell killing in vitro relative to Fc-enhanced IgG antibodies.

*Based on AFM13 clinical studies.
