Therapeutic/Technology: Therapeutic Approach


Treatment of sickle cell disease by induction of mixed chimerism and immune tolerance using CD4+ T-depleted haploidentical blood stem cell transplant

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Haploidentical (half-match) T cell depleted blood stem cell transplant with a low-toxic conditioning regimen Indication Adult patients with severe sickle cell disease who are excluded from the potentially curative current standard stem cell transplant. Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed therapy is intended to achieve mixed chimerism and immune tolerance. Mixed chimerism is […]

Phase 1 Study of CD19/CD22 Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T Cells in Adults with Recurrent or Refractory B Cell Malignancies

Therapeutic Candidate or Device T cells genetically engineered to express as bispecific Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) targeting CD19 and/or CD22 Indication Patients with relapsed and refractory B cell malignancies Therapeutic Mechanism T cells expressing the bispecific CAR will recognize cancer cells expressing one of both of the target antigens. Upon recognition, the T cells will […]

A phase I trial of intratumoral administration of CCL21-gene modified dendritic cell (DC) combined with intravenous pembrolizumab for advanced NSCLC

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Combination therapy with adenoviral CCL21 gene-modified DC and pembrolizumab Indication Patients with confirmed and measurable stage IV NSCLC expressing PD-L1 in less than 50% of cells who are na├»ve to systemic treatment for NSCLC. Therapeutic Mechanism The central rationale this approach is to utilize in situ vaccination with intratumoral injection of […]

Gene Transfer for Artemis-Deficient Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Using a Lentiviral Vector to Transduce Autologous CD34 Hematopoietic Stem Cells

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Bone marrow stem cells that have been treated by inserting a normal Artemis gene into the DNA using a modified virus called a lentivirus. Indication Children with severe combined immunodeficiency or "bubble baby disease" due to a defective gene that makes a protein called Artemis Therapeutic Mechanism Stem cells from the […]

Cellular Immunotherapy for Induction of Immune Tolerance in HLA Matched Living Donor Kidney Transplant Recipients

Therapeutic Candidate or Device MDR-101 is cellular therapy consisting of kidney donor-derived CD34+ HSCs and CD3+ T-cells. Indication Maintenance of kidney allograft function after withdrawal of post-transplant immunosuppressant (IS) drugs in HLA matched kidney transplants recipients Therapeutic Mechanism Following infusion and engraftment of MDR-101, the progeny cells establish a state of mixed lympo-hematopoetic chimerism. This […]

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Genetically engineered, Centyrin-based, stem cell memory CAR-T cells (CARTyrin T cells) Indication Multiple Myeloma Therapeutic Mechanism The Centyrin-based chimeric antigen receptor (CARTyrin) cells are cells that are removed from a myeloma patient's body and genetically engineered to express a receptor that binds to BCMA that is selectively found on myeloma cells, […]

Antiviral Cellular Therapy for Enhancing T-cell Reconstitution Before or After Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (ACES)

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Partially HLA-matched virus-specific T-cell therapy targeting cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and adenovirus. Indication This study will treat persistent viral infections with CMV, EBV, and/or adenovirus in patients with immunodeficiency. Therapeutic Mechanism The goal of this study is to use banked virus-specific T-cell therapy in A) patients who have persistent viral infections after […]

Evaluation of the Safety and Tolerability of KA34 in a Phase 1, Double-Blind, Dose Escalation Trial in Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis

Therapeutic Candidate or Device KA34 is an intra-articularly delivered small molecule therapeutic candidate which directs the differentiation of endogenous stem and progenitor cells Indication Osteoarthritis Therapeutic Mechanism KA34 promotes the differentiation of cartilage endogenous stem cells through increased chondrogenic gene expression to generate healthy chondrocytes. KA34 will potentially limit the progression of and / or […]

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 […]
