CIPN Study (SB211) Preliminary Update
In the SB211 study, patients are being randomized to one of three treatment groups that receive 20 µg SON-080, 60 µg SON-080, or a matching placebo in a blinded fashion, three times a week for 12 weeks. As of June 22, 2023, seven patients have been enrolled. While the groups remain blinded, doses have been tolerated well with some mild-to-moderate transient injection site reactions. As the protocol requires a total of nine patients to be dosed for at least two weeks before a safety review by the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), we expect the DSMB to meet during the third quarter of 2023. Following the completion of the DSMB review, we anticipate announcing the initial safety data.

About Sonnet BioTherapeutics Holdings, Inc.
Sonnet BioTherapeutics is an oncology-focused biotechnology company with a proprietary platform for innovating biologic drugs of single or bispecific action. Known as FHAB (Fully Human Albumin Binding), the technology utilizes a fully human single chain antibody fragment (scFv) that binds to and "hitch-hikes" on human serum albumin (HSA) for transport to target tissues. Sonnet's FHAB was designed to specifically target tumor and lymphatic tissue, with an improved therapeutic window for optimizing the safety and efficacy of immune modulating biologic drugs. FHAB is the foundation of a modular, plug-and-play construct for potentiating a range of large molecule therapeutic classes, including cytokines, peptides, antibodies, and vaccines.
