HPN328 is Harpoon’s fourth Tri-specific T cell Activating Construct (TriTAC™) candidate in development. HPN328 targets DLL3, a protein highly expressed in a majority of SCLC tumors with limited expression in normal tissues. This selective expression makes DLL3 an attractive drug target for T cell engagers. Harpoon is currently conducting IND-enabling studies and expects to initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial of HPN328 in 2020.
