Omidubicel is an advanced cell therapy under development as a potential life-saving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell (bone marrow) transplant solution for patients with hematologic malignancies (blood cancers). Omidubicel is the first bone marrow transplant product to receive Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and has also received Orphan Drug Designation in the U.S. and EU.
Omidubicel has been studied in an international, multi-center, randomized Phase 3 clinical study evaluating its the safety and efficacy compared to standard umbilical cord blood transplant.
The Phase 3 data also show that during the first 100 days of treatment, omidubicel-treated patients had significantly shorter durations of hospitalization, intensive care unit time, consultant visits, procedures, and transfusions than the control arm. These data provide further evidence of the clinical benefit associated with the more rapid hematopoietic recovery in patients treated with omidubicel and the corresponding reduction in healthcare resource utilization.
Full safety and efficacy data from this Phase 3 study have been published in Blood.
We expect to initiate the submission of a biologics license application (BLA) filing in the first half of 2022. Omidubicel is also being evaluated in a Phase 1/2 clinical study in patients with severe aplastic anemia, a rare and life-threatening blood disorder.
