GDA-201 is an enhanced and expanded intrinsic NK cell therapy candidate. The study of the cryopreserved formulation of GDA-201 is currently open to enrollment at Henry Ford Cancer Institute (Detroit, MI), the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota, Mayo Clinic Jacksonville (FL), Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center at Loyola University (MD), Dana-Farber/Mass General Brigham Cancer Care (MA) and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (NY). The Phase 1 portion of the study is designed to evaluate the safety of GDA-201 in patients with follicular lymphoma (FL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL)/high grade B-cell lymphoma (HGBCL), marginal zone lymphoma or mantle cell lymphoma. The Phase 2 expansion phase is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of GDA-201 in two patient cohorts, FL and DLBCL/HGBCL. The study will include patients who have relapsed or refractory lymphoma after at least two prior treatments. For more information about the study, please visit www.clinicaltrials.gov (NCT05296525).
GDA-201 has been evaluated in a Phase 1 investigator-led study in patients with refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and multiple myeloma and demonstrated that GDA-201 generally was well tolerated in 35 patients. Of the 19 patients with NHL, 13 complete responses and one partial response were observed (CRR = 68%, ORR = 74%). No dose-limiting toxicities were observed.
In two-year follow up data in the same Phase 1 study, an overall survival rate of 78% at two years with a median duration response of 16 months was observed (Bachanova, et al. ASH 2021. Abstract #3854).
GDA-201 is an investigational therapy and its safety and efficacy have not been established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any other health authority.
