XmAb5871: XmAb5871 is a first-in-class monoclonal antibody that targets CD19 with its variable domain, and uses Xencor's XmAb immune inhibitor Fc domain to target FcγRIIb, a receptor that inhibits B-cell function. XmAb5871 is currently in Phase 2 clinical studies for the treatment of IgG4-Related Disease (IgG4-RD) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Xencor recently completed its subcutaneous (SC) administration Phase 1 study of XmAb5871. Multiple dose SC administration of XmAb5871 was safe and well tolerated at doses of 125 to 375 mg in all 40 subjects administered SC XmAb5871. Treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs) occurring in subjects receiving any dose of SC XmAb5871 were mild in severity. The only drug-related TEAE occurring in more than two subjects who received any dose of SC XmAb5871 was injection site bruising (three subjects, 8%). No subject receiving SC XmAb5871 discontinued the study due to an adverse event and there were no serious adverse events during the study. Pharmacokinetic and bioavailability data from the study support an every other week dosing schedule. Based on these results, Xencor plans to implement SC administration in newly-initiated clinical trials. At the 3rd International Symposium on IgG4-Related Disease and Fibrosis in February 2017, investigators from Xencor's ongoing Phase 2 study of XmAb5871 in IgG4-RD presented an update on IgG4-RD biomarker development, including flow cytometry methods for measuring circulating B cells, plasmablasts and CD4-positive cytotoxic T lymphocytes. The presentation also included preliminary flow cytometry data for patients enrolled in the ongoing Phase 2 study, which showed a partial reduction in B cells, consistent with previous clinical experience, and a rapid reduction of circulating plasmablasts following treatment with XmAb5871. No significant apoptosis of B cells or CD4 T cells was induced by XmAb5871 therapy. XmAb®7195: XmAb7195 is a first-in-class monoclonal antibody that targets IgE with its variable domain and uses Xencor's XmAb Immune Inhibitor Fc domain to target FcγRIIb, resulting in three distinct mechanisms of action for reducing IgE levels. A subcutaneously administered formulation of XmAb7195 is currently in a Phase 1b study for the treatment of allergic disease. Bispecific Oncology Pipeline: Xencor's initial bispecific antibody programs are tumor-targeted antibodies that contain both a tumor antigen binding domain and a cytotoxic T-cell binding domain (CD3). These bispecific antibodies activate T cells for highly potent and targeted killing of malignant cells. Their XmAb Fc domains confer long circulating half-lives, stability and ease of manufacture. XmAb14045 is currently in a Phase 1 study for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and other CD123-expressing hematologic malignancies, and XmAb13676 is currently in a Phase 1 study for the treatment of B-cell malignancies. At the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) 2017 Annual Meeting in April, Xencor presented preclinical data supporting the development of XmAb18087 for the treatment of SSTR2+ cancers, including neuroendocrine tumors and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). In in vitro and mouse models, XmAb18087 eliminated SSTR2+ tumor cells by stimulating redirected T cell-mediated cytotoxicity, and in cynomolgus monkeys, XmAb18087 stimulated SSTR2-dependent T cell activation, T cell margination and cytokine release. Xencor also presented preclinical data on additional bispecific antibodies deploying its XmAb bispecific and half-life extension technology, highlighting a bispecific antibody targeting PD-1 and an undisclosed co-stimulatory receptor (PD1 x costim) and IL15/IL15Rα heterodimeric Fc-fusions. Partnered XmAb Programs: Nine pharmaceutical companies and the National Institutes of Health are advancing novel drug candidates either discovered at Xencor or that rely on Xencor's proprietary XmAb® technology. Seven such programs are currently undergoing clinical testing. Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities totaled $392.7 million as of March 31, 2017, compared to $403.5 million on December 31, 2016. The decrease reflects net spending on operations in the first quarter of 2017. Revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 were $4.3 million, compared to $7.3 million in the same period of 2016. Decreased revenue for the first quarter of 2017 over revenue for the same period in 2016 is primarily the result of revenue earned from our Amgen collaboration in the first quarter of 2016 compared to milestone revenue received from CSL in the first quarter of 2017. Research and development expenditures for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 were $15.0 million, compared to $10.0 million for the same period in 2016. Increased research and development spending in the first quarter of 2017 over the same period in 2016 reflects increased spending on our bispecific pipeline of candidates including our first two clinical candidates, XmAb14045 and XmAb13676 and development spending on the next two candidates, XmAb18087 and XmAb20717. General and administrative expenses in the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 were $4.8 million, compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2016. Increased spending on general and administration in the first quarter of 2017 over the comparable period in 2016 reflects increases in stock based compensation charges in 2017. Non-cash, share based compensation expense for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $3.2 million, compared to $2.0 million for the same period in 2016. Net loss for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $14.6 million, or $(0.31) on a fully diluted per share basis, compared to a net loss of $6.4 million, or ($0.16) on a fully diluted per share basis, for the same period in 2016. The increased loss for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 compared to 2016 is primarily due to lower revenue of $2.9 million and increased spending of $5.9 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the first quarter of 2016. The weighted-average shares outstanding used to compute net loss per share was 46,598,797 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to 40,626,729 for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Based on current operating plans, Xencor expects to have cash to fund research and development programs and operations beyond the end of 2020. Xencor expects to end 2017 with approximately $340 million in cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities. Conference Call and Webcast Xencor will host a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT) to discuss these first quarter 2017 financial results and provide a corporate update. The live call may be accessed by dialing (877) 359-9508 for domestic callers or (224) 357-2393 for international callers, and referencing conference ID number: 10271460. A live webcast of the conference call will be available online from the investor relations section of the company website at www.xencor.com. The webcast will be archived on the company website for 30 days. About Xencor, Inc.

The inhaler comprises an impaction element onto which the air stream can impact together with entrained inhalation formulation for better deagglomeration. Alternatively, the inhaler comprises an oscillating and/or vibrating device for better de-agglomeration of the inhalation formulation. Alternatively or additionally, the inhaler comprises one or two mixing means for generating swirls, preferably with opposite rotation directions.
Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH | Date: 2013-05-17
The invention relates to a system composed of an inhaler and a capsule, preferably intended for single use. The capsule contains a preferably powdered pharmaceutical preparation which, for inhalation, is expelled from the capsule through at least one hole. The capsule comprises as capsule elements a capsule cap and a capsule body, at least one of which comprises at least one prefabricated hole. The prefabricated hole in the capsule is sealed off in the transporting state of the system and is open in the usage state. The hole is exposed by actuation of a pulling mechanism. Prior to this the hole is closed off by a capsule receptacle or a film. In one embodiment the capsule may be present in two different states, for example in different insertion positions of the capsule elements. In the first state the prefabricated hole is closed off and in the second it is exposed. Also shown is an inhaler suitable as a disposable product, which is manufactured from thermoformed parts or from blister film.
