Caladrius Biosciences, Inc. Announces Research Collaboration with the University of Southern California and California Institute of Technology
Jun 18 15
Caladrius Biosciences, Inc. announced that it has entered into a material transfer agreement with the University of Southern California and the California Institute of Technology, concerning next-generation strategies for its core cancer technology. This research collaboration will build on Caladrius' highly successful manufacturing protocol for its lead cancer program, CLBS20 (aka NBS20), by exploring techniques to further enhance the isolation of cancer initiating cells with the goal of increasing the number of cancer patients that might benefit from treatment. CLBS20 is the subject of a Phase 3 clinical trial investigating its efficacy in the treatment of late-stage melanoma, the Intus Study. The trial has been granted a Special Protocol Assessment by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the CLBS20 development program has been granted Orphan Drug and Fast Track designations by FDA. Randomization of the first patient in the Intus trial occurred in April 2015. Advanced melanoma is exceedingly difficult to treat, with a five-year survival rate of approximately 15%. There are 20,000 estimated new cases, and an estimated 10,000 deaths, from metastatic melanoma each year in the United States. The US melanoma market is approximately $1 billion per year, which is predominantly spent to treat metastatic melanoma. The platform on which CLBS20 is based is potentially applicable across multiple solid tumor types, including lung, colon and ovarian cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma and glioblastoma multiforme. CLBS20 uses the patient's own immune cells and tumor-initiating cells to create an immunotherapy therapeutic vaccine. It is unique in targeting these cancer- or tumor-initiating cells; other therapies, which target different tumor cells, may treat existing cancer but may not be as likely to prevent tumor recurrence.
