About GDA-601

GDA-601 is an investigational genetically engineered NAM-NK cell therapy candidate designed to target multiple myeloma (MM) cells. Preclinical data presented in a poster session, titled “GDA-601: NAM-NK Cells With CD38 Knockout Expresses Enhanced CD38 Chimeric Antigen Receptor and Targets Multiple Myeloma Cells With Increased Cytotoxicity,” showed that in vitro killing assays performed six hours after co-culture of GDA-601 with a MM (RPMI) cell line showed increased cytotoxicity compared with control NAM-NK cells. Fratricide attributable to CD38 antigen was effectively eliminated with GDA-601. There was a significant enhancement of potency against CD38-positive MM cells demonstrated by elevation of the degranulation marker CD107a and intracellular proinflammatory cytokines interferon-γ and tumor necrosis factor-α in vitro. These results suggest that GDA-601 displays superior antitumoral responses against MM cells and represent a promising adoptive cell therapeutic strategy against MM.
