Clinical trial assessing allogeneic, HLA-matched, donor-derived allogeneic CAR-T therapy
GC007g is Gracell's allogeneic, human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched, donor-derived, CD19-directed CAR-T cell therapy candidate under development for the treatment of a subset of B-ALL patients who relapsed after allogeneic human stem cell transplant (allo-HSCT). This donor-derived CAR-T approach has been designed for r/r B-ALL patients who may not be eligible for autologous CAR-T therapy due to poor cell fitness, infections, and other unsuitable conditions.
Data from the Phase 1 trial showed encouraging efficacy and a favorable safety profile. The registrational Phase 2 trial is being conducted in
"B-ALL patients that relapse after allo-HSCT therapy often face poor prognoses, and remain a patient population with a clear unmet medical need. Donor-derived CAR-T therapy could provide a new option to some of these patients who might be ineligible for other treatments including autologous CAR-T therapy," said Dr.
GC007g is an allogeneic CD19-targeted CAR-T cell therapy, derived from HLA-matched donors, under development for the treatment of r/r B-ALL patients who failed transplant and may not be eligible for autologous CAR-T therapy.
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a type of blood cancer characterized by proliferation of immature lymphocytes in the bone marrow, which can involve either T lymphocytes (T-ALL), or B lymphocytes (B-ALL). Globally, approximately 64,000 patients are diagnosed with ALL every year with an estimated 6,660 new cases to be diagnosed in
