Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Announces FDA Grants Therapy Designation to Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) Targeted T-Cells for Treatment of EBV-Associated Lymphoproliferative Disease
Mar 2 15
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has received breakthrough therapy designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Atara's optioned cytotoxic T lymphocytes activated against Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV-CTL) in the treatment of patients with rituximab-refractory, EBV-associated lymphoproliferative disease (EBV-LPD), a type of malignancy occurring after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Allogeneic HCT is also commonly called a bone marrow transplant. EBV-CTL may provide an 'off-the-shelf', allogeneic, cellular therapeutic option for patients with EBV-LPD. EBV-CTL are made from T-cells collected from the blood of third-party donors. Once collected, the T-cells are exposed to certain antigens. The resulting activated T-cells are expanded, characterized and stored for future therapeutic use in an appropriate partially human leukocyte antigen matched patient. In the context of EBV-LPD, the EBV-CTL find the cancer cells expressing EBV and kill them. Breakthrough therapy designation for EBV-CTL was based on data from two separate clinical trials of EBV-CTL conducted by MSK. Data from these studies have been submitted for presentation at an upcoming medical conference in 2015.
Enumeral Biomedical Holdings, Inc. and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to Research Cancer Immunology with Advanced Prototype System for Human Tissue Immuno-Oncology Profiling
Jan 12 15
Enumeral Biomedical Holdings, Inc. announced that the company signed an agreement with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as part of Enumeral’s Phase II Small Business Innovation Research contract with the National Cancer Institute. Enumeral is developing an advanced, automated prototype system for human tissue immuno-oncology profiling, which will be deployed at MSK in the laboratory of Jedd D. Wolchok, M.D., Ph.D., Chief of Melanoma and Immunotherapeutics Service, Lloyd J. Old/Ludwig Chair in Clinical Investigation Department of Medicine and Ludwig Center, at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Wolchok played a critical role in the clinical development of ipilimumab and nivolumab, immunotherapies which represent a transformational advancement in the treatment of cancer. Enumeral’s Phase II program is focused on applying its human-driven immune profiling platform to small volume clinical specimens such as core biopsy or fine needle aspirates, which often contain limited numbers of cells and can be challenging to analyze with conventional technologies. Enumeral’s human-driven immune profiling platform has the ability to determine cellular function in an unbiased fashion, allowing analysis of rare immune cells associated with disease or drug response in even the smallest clinical samples. Studying rare cells obtained directly from human patients for their functional responses can potentially lead to identification of those patients responsive to a therapy, while elucidating the underlying cellular basis for such a response, which may ultimately guide development of more precisely targeted immunotherapies. Enumeral’s collaboration with MSK is supported by a Phase II SBIR contract from the NCI for $999,967 over two years. The NCI is funding the entirety of the program, which complements Enumeral’s other internal research and development efforts. Enumeral demonstrated proof of concept in this area under a Phase I contract in 2012 and 2013.
IBM Research Scientists Investigate Use of Cognitive Computing-Based Visual Analytics for Skin Cancer Image Analysis with Memorial Sloan Kettering
Dec 17 14
IBM announced a collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering to research the application of cognitive computing to analyze dermatological images of skin lesions with the goal of assisting clinicians in the identification of various cancerous disease states. The technology, which learns by identifying specific patterns in medical images, has the potential to increase the number of cases detected and help clinicians make earlier diagnoses. The automated analysis of skin imaging is one area of research that is currently being investigated by IBM Research, in conjunction with a larger international effort being led by Memorial Sloan Kettering.
