AB-110-001 Phase 1b Trial and Related Activities to Support Clinical Development of AB-110

Therapeutic Candidate or Device AB-110 consists of cord blood derived hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells co-cultured and expanded with E-CEL UVEC cells Indication Hematologic and immune reconstitution in patients who have received myeloablation conditioning Therapeutic Mechanism Stem and progenitor cells (active ingredient) of AB-110 engraft into the bone marrow of patients, rebuilding a new blood […]

Phase I Study of Chimeric Antigen Receptor Engineered Central Memory T cells for the Treatment of Malignant Glioma

Therapeutic Candidate or Device A promising immunotherapy utilizing a patient’s memory T cells engineered to express chimeric antigen receptors for targeted tumor killing. Indication Malignant glioma (WHO III and IV), including glioblastoma (WHO IV), that express the tumor-associated antigen IL-13 receptor alpha 2 (IL13Rα2). Therapeutic Mechanism A promising immunotherapy utilizing a patient’s memory T cells […]

A Phase 1b/2a Study of the ROR1-Targeting Monoclonal Antibody, Cirmtuzumab, and the Bruton Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor, Ibrutinib, in B-Cell Cancers

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Cirmtuzumab (UC-961) is a therapeutic monoclonal antibody that inhibits ROR1, a tumor-specific protein on the surface of many cancer stem cells Indication Cirmtuzumab will be used with the approved drug, ibrutinib, for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia or mantle cell lymphoma Therapeutic Mechanism ROR1 is a cell surface protein which is […]

Phase 1b Trial of Hu5F9-G4 Monotherapy or Hu5F9-G4 in Combination with Azacitidine in Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Hu5F9-G4 is a drug called an antibody that is designed to mobilize the body's immune system to eliminate cancer and cancer stem cells. Indication Patients with relapsed and/or refractory AML or newly diagnosed AML who cannot receive standard high dose chemotherapy. Therapeutic Mechanism This treatment targets cancer stem cells, which are […]

Clinical trial of directly vascularized islet cell replacement therapy for high-risk type 1 diabetes

Therapeutic Candidate or Device pancreatic progenitor cells in a delivery device that allows direct vascularization Indication high-risk type 1 diabetes including "brittle" diabetes and hypoglycemia unawareness Therapeutic Mechanism People with type 1 diabetes have lost their pancreatic cells that make insulin, and therefore have to self-administer insulin. It is very difficult to manage blood sugar […]

A Phase 1b/2 Trial of the Anti-CD47 Antibody Hu5F9-G4 in Combination with Cetuximab in Patients with Solid Tumors and Advanced Colorectal Cancer

Therapeutic Candidate or Device The treatment is two drugs: Hu5F9-G4 and cetuximab. These are antibodies, which are engineered drugs that eliminate cancers using the immune system. Indication Patients with advanced colon cancer that have a genetic mutation in the KRAS gene and those without the KRAS genetic mutation. Therapeutic Mechanism This treatment targets cancer stem […]

Lentiviral Gene Therapy for Infants with X-linked Severe Combined Immunodeficiency using Autologous Bone Marrow Stem Cells and Busulfan Conditioning

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Bone marrow stem cells will be transduced with a lentiviral vector to deliver a normal copy of the gamma-chain gene to treat X-linked SCID. Indication x-linked severe combined immunodeficiency, a severe pediatric disorder in which children have multiple defects in their immune system. Therapeutic Mechanism The gene therapy will correct the […]

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Treated with Cardiosphere-Derived Allogeneic Stem Cells

Therapeutic Candidate or Device CAP-1002 Indication Patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) Therapeutic Mechanism CAP-1002's mechanism of action may result in reduced wall thickening of small blood vessels in the lung that are markedly narrowed/obstructed in PAH. The latter results in high resistance against which the right ventricle (RV) must pump in order to drive […]

Induction of Tolerance to Combined Kidney and Hematopoietic Progenitor Cell Transplants from HLA Haplotype Matched Living Donors

Therapeutic Candidate or Device blood stem cells and T cells from organ transplant donors will be studied under this proposal to prevent rejection of kidney transplants Indication to withdraw immunosuppressant drugs from kidney transplant recipients Therapeutic Mechanism Injection of the donor blood stem cells into recipients will prevent recipient immune cells from rejecting the donor […]

Human Neural Progenitors Secreting Glial Cell Line-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (CNS10-NPC-GDNF) for the Treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Therapeutic Candidate or Device CNS10-NPC-GDNF – a neural progenitor cell secreting GDNF Indication ALS Therapeutic Mechanism This therapy will replace damaged astrocytes. The new astrocytes will release paracrine factors. As the cells have been modified to release GDNF they will also provide this factor to dying motor neurons. Unmet Medical Need There is no treatment […]
