CPI-444 is an orally administered antagonist of the adenosine A2A receptor. Upon oral administration, CPI-444 binds to adenosine A2A receptors expressed on the surface of immune cells, including T-lymphocytes, natural killer (NK) cells, macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs). This prevents tumor-released adenosine from interacting with the A2A receptors on these key immune surveillance cells, thereby abrogating adenosine-induced immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment.

How to use
CPI-444 is a potent, oral, selective A2AR antagonist. CD8+ T cell depletion abrogates the efficacy of CPI-444 treatment as a single agent as well as in combination with anti-PD-L1, demonstrating a role for CD8+ T cells in mediating primary and secondary immune responses. Anti-tumor efficacy of CPI-444±anti-PD-L1 is associated with increased CD8+ cell infiltration and activation in MC38 tumor tissues, and a corresponding rise in PD-1 expression on CD8+ T cells in the spleen. Additionally, levels of immune checkpoints are modulated by treatment with CPI-444, including GITR, OX40, and LAG3 on tumor infiltrating lymphocytes and circulating T cells, suggesting a broad role for adenosine mediated immunosuppression.
Daily treatment of the syngeneic mouse model MC38 with CPI-444 (1, 10, 100 mg/kg) leads to dose-dependent inhibition of tumor growth, leading to tumor elimination in ~30% of treated mice. Combining CPI-444 (100 mg/kg, qd, 14 days) with anti-PD-L1 (200 μg, 3qw, 4 doses) treatment in MC38 models synergistically inhibits tumor growth and eliminates tumors in 90% of treated mice. When cured mice are later re-challenged with MC38 cells, tumor growth is rejected in 100% of challenged mice, indicating that CPI-444 induces systemic anti-tumor immune memory.
