The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Inc Announces the Collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to Launch a New Clinical Trial for Multiple Myeloma (MM) Patients

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation Inc. announced a collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to launch a new clinical trial for multiple myeloma (MM) patients. The trial, Carfilzomib, Lenalidomide, Dexamethasone in Newly-Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma: a Translational MRD Study, will integrate highly effective, modern combination therapy with genetic sequencing, to help define predictors of sustained MRD negativity. MRD is defined as the level of disease still detectable in MM patients after their treatment regimen is completed. Recent work has shown that very low or undetectable levels of MRD after completion of treatment (i.e., a “deep response”) is associated with improved patient outcomes including longer survival. MRD measurement may offer a faster and more accurate assessment of how effective a treatment is in an individual patient; use of this test, pending approval by the US Food and Drug Administration, could allow clinical trials to proceed more rapidly, thereby cutting costs and potentially speeding new treatments to patients more quickly than ever before. The sensitivity of MRD measurement also holds the promise to help doctors determine –in the coming future- if and when treatment may be stopped or re-started based on a patient’s MRD status.

Fate Therapeutics and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Launch Partnership for Development of Off-the-Shelf T-Cell Immunotherapies

Fate Therapeutics, Inc. announced a partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for the development of off-the-shelf T-cell product candidates using engineered pluripotent cell lines. Research and development activities under the multi-year collaboration will be led by Michel Sadelain, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Center for Cell Engineering and the Stephen and Barbara Friedman Chair at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The collaboration unites research, preclinical development and manufacturing work currently being conducted independently at Fate Therapeutics and Memorial Sloan Kettering to accelerate the clinical translation of T-cell product candidates derived from engineered pluripotent cells. Collectively, the groups have amassed significant and complementary expertise necessary to deliver off-the-shelf T-cell immunotherapies, including the engineering, maintenance and expansion of induced pluripotent cell lines and the scalable generation of T cells with enhanced safety profiles and effector functions. In connection with the partnership, Fate Therapeutics has exclusively licensed from Memorial Sloan Kettering foundational intellectual property covering induced pluripotent cell-derived immune cells, including T cells and NK cells derived from pluripotent cells engineered with chimeric antigen receptors, for human therapeutic use. Additionally, Fate Therapeutics maintains an option to exclusively license intellectual property arising from all research and development activities under the collaboration.
