Therapeutic/Technology: Therapeutic Approach


A Phase I Study of Multiple doses of NSC-Based Oncolytic Virotherapy Administered Intracerebrally to Patients with Recurrent High-Grade Gliomas

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Neural stem cells that are genetically engineered to express a cancer-killing virus that specifically targets brain tumor cells Indication Recurrent brain tumors in adults: high grade gliomas (HGG), such as glioblastoma (GBM) Therapeutic Mechanism The neural stem cells will act as carriers to deliver a cancer-killing virus to brain tumors (at […]

A Double-Blind Randomized Placebo-Controlled Investigation of Autologous Muscle Derived Progenitor Cells for the Treatment of Dysphagia

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous Muscle Derived Progenitor Cells (AMDC) isolated from skeletal muscle biopsy Indication Subjects with dysphagia (swallowing difficulties) that develops following treatment for head and neck cancer Therapeutic Mechanism Autologous Muscle Derived Progenitor Cells differentiate to form new muscle fibers, engraft into existing myofibers, and have been shown to increase muscle diameter […]

A Phase I, Pilot Study of Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Cardiomyocytes in PaTients with ChrOnic Ischemic Left VentRicular Dysfunction (HECTOR)

Therapeutic Candidate or Device The therapeutic candidate is human embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hESC-CMs) as a new therapy for chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy patients Indication hESC-CMs will be indicated for treatment of heart failure (HF) and for preventing progression to HF in patients with chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy. Therapeutic Mechanism There are two commonly accepted mechanisms by […]

PHASE 1, OPEN LABEL, DOSE-ESCALATION STUDY OF CRX100 IN PATIENTS WITH ADVANCED SOLID TUMORS

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Immune cells loaded with a cancer-killing virus that targets cancer tissue, not healthy tissue. Indication Advanced, refractory solid tumors: CRC, HCC, Osteosarcoma, NNN Breast, Ovarian, Gastric Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed therapy pairs activated immune cells with an adapted oncolytic virus that selectively infects and kills malignant cells. The result of this […]

Phase 1 Clinical Trial of Autologous GD2 Chimeric Antigen Receptor T Cells for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas and Spinal Diffuse Midline Glioma

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous T cells genetically engineered to express a Chimeric Antigen Receptor targeting GD2 (GD2-CART) Indication Brain tumors in children and young adults: Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPG) and Spinal Diffuse Midline Glioma (DMG) Therapeutic Mechanism Progenitor GD2-CART cells will recognize DIPG/DMG cancer cells expressing GD2, become activated, divide, and kill the […]

Phase 1/1b study of T-allo10 infusion after HLA-partially matched abdepleted-HSCT in children and young adults with hematologic malignancies.

Therapeutic Candidate or Device An immunotherapy cell product, T-allo10, that is enriched for specialized immune cells called type I regulatory T (Tr1) cells Indication Children and young adults with relapse/refractory acute leukemia receiving a specialized stem cell transplant, αβdepleted-HSCT Therapeutic Mechanism αβdepleted-HSCT has increased the number of patients who can safely receive transplants, however this […]

Safety and Tolerability Study of Neural Stem Cells (NR1) in Subjects with Chronic Ischemic Subcortical Stroke

Therapeutic Candidate or Device A human embryonic derived, non-genetically modified neural stem cell (NR1), originally derived from the Wi-Cell H-9 line Indication Patients with chronic motor deficits, from 6 to 60 months after stroke. NR1 cells will be injected into the brain near the site of the stroke. Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed therapeutic mechanism of […]

CNS10-NPC-GDNF delivered into the motor cortex for the treatment of ALS

Therapeutic Candidate or Device CNS10-NPC-GDNF – a neural progenitor cell secreting GDNF Indication Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (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 neuroprotective factor to dying motor neurons in the motor […]

Phase I Study of IL13Rα2-Targeting CAR T Cells After Lymphodepletion for Children with Refractory or Recurrent Malignant Brain Tumors

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Autologous chimeric antigen receptor T cells derived from naive/memory T cells and engineered to target IL13Rα2 on pediatric malignant brain tumors. Indication Recurrent/refractory malignant pediatric brain tumors that express the tumor-associated antigen IL13Rα2. Therapeutic Mechanism Naive and memory T cells are harvested from patients and reprogrammed to express chimeric antigen receptors […]

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.
