Phase 1 Clinical Development of IO-202, A First-in-Class Antibody Targeting LILRB4, for the Treatment of AML with Monocytic Differentiation and CMML

Therapeutic Candidate or Device IO-202, a first-in-class antibody targeting leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor B4 (LILRB4), an immune inhibitory receptor Indication Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with monocytic differentiation and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) Therapeutic Mechanism IO-202 is the first T-cell activator for AML. Preclinical studies showed that IO-202 can convert a “don’t kill me” to “kill me” […]

The CuRe Trial: Cellular Therapy for In Utero Myelomeningocele Repair

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Allogeneic Placenta-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Seeded on Cook Biodesign® Dural Graft Extracellular Matrix (PMSC-ECM) Indication Myelomeningocele (MMC) -or Spina Bifida -diagnosed prenatally Therapeutic Mechanism Placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells (PMSCs) act by a paracrine mechanism, secreting a variety of growth factors, cytokines, and extracellular vesicles. This secretory profile is unique to PMSCs […]

A Phase I Clinical Trial for a Lentiviral Gene Therapy Targeting the TCIRG1 Gene for Infantile Malignant Osteopetrosis (IMO)

Therapeutic Candidate or Device The therapeutic candidate is an ex-vivo autologous gene therapy approach for Infantile Malignant Osteopetrosis (IMO). Indication The target clinical indication is Infantile Malignant Osteopetrosis (IMO), a pediatric, autosomal recessive rare disease. Therapeutic Mechanism The therapeutic mechanism is based on an ex-vivo, lentiviral-based, patient-specific approach by genetically engineering the patient's own CD34+ […]

Anti-HIV duoCAR-T cell therapy for HIV infection

Therapeutic Candidate or Device HIV-specific CAR-T cells Indication Management of HIV infection Therapeutic Mechanism We will modify T cells such that they are able to directly control HIV in the absence of therapy. Should this work, these cells will result in long-term control of HIV in absence of any ongoing treatment, a version of a […]

A Phase 1b Safety Study for MRI guided delivery of AAV2-GDNF for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease

Therapeutic Candidate or Device AAV2-GDNF is a gene therapy product encoding Glial cell line-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF) Indication Parkinson's disease Therapeutic Mechanism AAV2-GDNF will be delivered into the putamen. GDNF is a growth factor expected to act by stimulating regeneration of the terminals of dopamine producing neurons that are progressively lost in PD. This is […]

Safety and Feasibility of Cultivated Autologous Limbal Stem Cells for Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous cultivated limbal stem cells (cLSC) Indication Limbal stem cell deficiency Therapeutic Mechanism Restoration of a normal corneal surface using cLSC might be achieved by replenishing the LSC population and/or providing trophic factors to stimulate residual LSCs. Unmet Medical Need Therapy using cultivated LSC, which achieves the best clinical outcomes is […]

A Phase I Study of Chimeric Antigen Receptor Engineered Stem/Memory T Cells for the Treatment of HER2-Positive Brain Metastases

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous naïve-stem/memory T cells engineered with a chimeric antigen receptor targeting the HER2 antigen (HER2BBζ-Tn/mem) Indication HER2-positive brain and/or leptomeningeal metastases, primarily from breast cancer Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed therapy aims to provide a safe and effective treatment option for patients with HER2-positive cancers that have metastasized to the central nervous […]

Clinical Study to Assess Safety and Efficacy of Subretinal Injection of Human Neural Progenitor Cells for Treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa

Therapeutic Candidate or Device CNS10-NPC – a human neural progenitor cell line Indication Retinitis Pigmentosa Therapeutic Mechanism 1. Phagocytosis of photoreceptor outer segment debris. 2. The release of pro-survival factors that have localized diffusion to inhibit retinal photoreceptor cell death. 3. Immunomodulation resulting in markedly fewer host inflammatory cells at the site of CNS10-NPC engraftment […]

LADICell

Therapeutic Candidate or Device The therapeutic candidate is an ex-vivo autologous gene therapy approach for Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-I (LAD-I). Indication The target clinical indication is Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-I (LAD-I), a pediatric hematological rare disease. Therapeutic Mechanism The therapeutic is based in an ex-vivo, lentiviral-based, patient-specific approach by genetically engineering the patient's own CD34 positively selected […]

Phase 1/2 study for autologous human CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells ex vivo transduced with pCCL-CTNS lentiviral vector for treatment of Cystinosis.

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous Human CD34+ HSC from Mobilized PBSC of Patients with Cystinosis Modified by Ex Vivo Transduction using the pCCL-CTNS Lentiviral Vector Indication Cystinosis – An autosomal metabolic disease that belongs to the family of the lysosomal storage disorders. Gene involved is CTNS (encodes cystinosin). Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed therapy intervention is […]
