Poseida Therapeutics to Provide Update on Phase 1 Study of P-BCMA-101 at the 2018 American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting
SAN DIEGO, Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Poseida Therapeutics Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on leveraging proprietary next-generation, non-viral gene engineering technologies to create life-saving therapeutics, today announced that an update from the first five cohorts of an ongoing Phase 1 study of P-BCMA-101, Poseida’s lead autologous CAR-T therapeutic candidate for patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, will be presented at the 2018 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting in San Diego on December 3, 2018.
Presentation Title: Efficacy and Safety of P-BCMA-101 CAR-T Cells in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma
Abstract Number: 1012
Date and Time: 6:15 - 7:45 p.m. PT, Monday, December 3, 2018
Location: Ballroom 20D, San Diego Convention Center
P-BCMA-101 is an autologous CAR-T therapeutic candidate being developed to treat patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. P-BCMA-101 targets cells that express B cell maturation antigen, or BCMA, which is expressed on essentially all multiple myeloma cells. P-BCMA-101 is engineered with Poseida’s non-viral piggyBac™ DNA Modification System, resulting in a high percentage of a long-lived, self-renewing type of T cells called T stem cell memory cells (TSCM). Previously reported preliminary results from the company’s ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial suggested that P-BCMA-101 may have improved response rates with a favorable safety profile compared to published results from clinical trials of other CAR-T therapies at similar doses. Low to no levels of cytokine release syndrome or neurotoxicity had been seen as of the date the previous results were reported. The Phase 1 study is funded in part by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
