Project Objective: Clinical Trial, Phase 1 or Phase 1/2


RPESC-RPE-4W Therapy for dry Age-related Macular Degeneration

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Retina pigment epithelial stem cell (RPESC)-derived RPE progeny at 4 weeks of differentiation (RPESC-RPE-4W) Indication Dry age-related macular degeneration (dry AMD). Therapeutic Mechanism Dry AMD involves loss of the RPE cells that support the overlying retina and vision. We transplant laboratory grown RPESC-RPE-4W cell to replace the RPE cells lost in […]

Phase I Study of Chimeric Antigen Receptor Engineered T Cells targeting CD33 for the Treatment of Relapsed/Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Immune T cells from a patient’s transplant donor engineered to express chimeric antigen receptors for targeted leukemia killing Indication Relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia Therapeutic Mechanism Upon adoptive transfer, patient specific immune T cells that express chimeric antigen receptors will specifically recognize and directly kill leukemia cells expressing CD33. Unmet […]

Phase I Trial of Locoregionally Delivered Autologous B7-H3 CAR T Cells (B7-H3CART) in Adults with Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous T cells genetically engineered to express a Chimeric Antigen Receptor targeting B7-H3 (B7-H3CART) Indication Brain tumors in adults: Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Therapeutic Mechanism Progenitor B7-H3CART cells will recognize GBM cancer cells expressing B7-H3, become activated, divide, and kill the cancer cells Unmet Medical Need Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is the most […]

Personalized antisense oligonucleotide therapy for rare pediatric genetic disease: SCN2A

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Investigational personalized antisense oligonucleotide drug (nL-SCN2A-002) Indication SCN2a-associated genetic disorder Therapeutic Mechanism The study participant has a pathogenic de novo p.R853Q gain-of-function amino acid substitution mutation in the SCN2A gene with both GOF and LOF effects when expressed in cells. nL-SCN2A-002 is designed to specifically bind the pathogenic allele and lower […]

Stem-Derived IL13Ra2 Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cells for Patients with Melanoma and Advanced Solid Tumors

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Adult Stem-Like T cells engineered with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) to target cancers expressing IL13Ra2, including melanoma. Indication Advanced cancers that express IL13Ra2, including melanoma. Therapeutic Mechanism When administered to a patient, the engineered T cells will circulate through the blood and tissues to 􀁹nd, recognize and kill tumor cells that […]

Evaluation of Safety and Feasibility of Cytomegalovirus-Specific, Anti-HIV Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CMV/HIV-CAR) T Cells in People with HIV

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Cytomegalovirus (CMV)-specific T cells that express a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) which targets and eliminates HIV-infected cells Indication Management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) Therapeutic Mechanism Persons with HIV (PWH) lose immunity because of decreased T lymphocyte function. We propose to treat them with CAR T cells which […]

A Phase I Open Label Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of ISP-001 in Patients with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 1

Therapeutic Candidate or Device B cells will be isolated from patients suffering MPSI. These will be transformed with a normal copy of the gene and re-introduced into the patient Indication Mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPSI) is a rare disease that affects predominantly children. Untreated, these patients typically die by the age of 10. Therapeutic Mechanism The therapeutic […]

Autologous ARTEMIS® T Cells to Treat Refractory/Relapsed Pediatric Liver Cancer

Therapeutic Candidate or Device ET140203 T cells: engineered T-cell therapy whereby autologous T cells are modified to specifically target and kill AFP+/ HLA-A2+ cancer cells. Indication Pediatric subjects aged ≥ 1 year to ≤ 21 years who are AFP-positive/HLA-A2-positive and have relapsed/refractory (r/r) HB, HCN-NOS, or HCC. Therapeutic Mechanism ET140203 T-cell therapy is designed to […]

Reduced intensity conditioning with JSP191 prior to TCRαβ+ T-cell/CD19+ B-cell depleted hematopoietic stem cell transplant for Fanconi Anemia patients

Therapeutic Candidate or Device αβdepleted-HSC grafts and a reduced-intensity preparative conditioning regimen containing JSP191 Indication Treatment of patients with all genetic forms of Fanconi Anemia (FA) with evidence of cytopenias Therapeutic Mechanism Fanconi anemia (FA) patients undergoing HCT have heightened sensitivity to current conditioning regimens and short and long-term sensitivity to graft versus host disease […]

A Phase 1b, Randomized, Blinded, Placebo-Controlled Dose-Ranging Study of GNSC-001 Evaluating Safety, Pharmacodynamics, and Biomarkers in Knee OA
