About CID-103 (Anti-CD38 Mab)
CID-103 is a fully human IgG1 anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody recognizing a unique epitope. Preclinical data demonstrate CID-103 to have enhanced activity against a broad array of malignancies which express CD38, and potentially better preclinical efficacy and safety profile when compared to other CD38 monoclonal antibodies. CASI has exclusive global rights to CID-103 and expects to initiate Phase 1 trials in early 2021.
