Gracell gains on recent positive FastCAR data in B cell NHL

At ASCO meeting, the company reported that GCO12F led to a 93% ORR and an 83% complete response rate in 29 Chinese multiple myeloma patients in an investigator-initiated trial. On June 10 at the EHA Congress, it reported that the same rapidly manufactured therapy led to a 100% ORR and a 66.7% six-month CR in nine diffuse large B cell lymphoma patients in China.

Latest Nkarta update on NKX101 disappointed the market

Shares of Nkarta lost more than a third of their value after the company reported the latest data from a Phase 1 trial of NKX101, its allogeneic CAR NK cell therapy. Although the therapy plus lymphodepletion led to complete responses in four of six patients with acute myelogenous leukemia, with two responders showing minimal residual disease and one response deepening with exposure to more cycles, the company also reported data showing that among 13 new patients receiving lymphodepletion and NKX101, only one had a complete response.

2seventy bio announced a Phase 1 study of SC-DARIC33 conducted by Seattle Children’s will be paused after a pediatric patient with acute myelogenous leukemia died following treatment at the trial’s second dose level. The cause is under investigation.

FDA placed a clinical hold on CAR-T therapy from Arcellx following patient death

Arcellx said it believes that limitations on bridging therapy could have contributed to the death of a patient in the company’s iMMagine-1 Phase 2 clinical trial of CART-ddBCMA to treat relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, a study on which FDA has placed a clinical hold. The company added that it was working with the agency to amend the study protocol to expand options for patients that are consistent with current clinical practice, and that FDA had cleared Arcellx to dose patients who have undergone lymphodepletion.
