Celularity Inc. (NASDAQ: CELU) (“Celularity”), a biotechnology company developing placental-derived allogeneic cell therapies and biomaterial products, announced today that it will present in vivo data from its T-cell therapy platform at this year’s AACR Annual Meeting. These data, which highlight the platform’s robust anti-tumor activity against gastric cancer will be presented on April 9th, 2024. Please find the link to the abstract here.

Celularity is developing a platform to combine a broad portfolio of cell therapies with various approved antibodies to address multiple cancers and other conditions. Celularity’s preclinical asset, PT-CD16VS, is initially being developed in combination with trastuzumab, a cancer drug, for treating HER2-positive cancers. The data in this study demonstrates that treatment with PT-CD16VS in combination with trastuzumab resulted in a significant reduction in tumor volume compared to treatment with trastuzumab alone, as well as with Enhertu alone, which is the current standard of care.

“These data demonstrate the promise and potential of combining Celularity’s cell therapy assets with currently available therapies to address difficult-to-treat cancers,” said Dr. Robert Hariri, Celularity’s CEO and Founder. “With this study, we are also advancing our pipeline to address aging-related healthcare challenges, including cancer. This work highlights the deep expertise and capabilities in cell therapy resident at Celularity, employing our platform of placental-derived cell products and our ability to engineer those cells in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.”  

Dr. Adrian Kilcoyne, Chief Medical Officer, added, “As we continue to focus on first-in-class and best-in-class cell therapy assets, Celularity is realizing the broad potential of our extensive cell therapy portfolio across T-cells, natural killer (NK) cells, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), and exosomes.”

The AACR Annual Meeting will be held from April 5 to 10, 2024, in San Diego, CA.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of U.S. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as well as within the meaning of Section 27A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

The forward-looking statements in this press release include statements regarding the ability of placental circulating T cells that are genetically modified to express a proprietary CD16 variant and endogenous T cell receptor (TCR) knockout (PT-CD16VS) in combination with Trastuzumab to significantly reduce in tumor volume compared to Trastuzumab alone and Enhertu alone; the potential of combining Celularity’s cell therapy assets with currently available therapies to address difficult to treat cancers; Celularity’s ability to advance our pipeline to address aging related healthcare challenges, including cancer; the broad potential of Celularity’s cell therapy portfolio, among others. Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements, including but not limited to: the inherent risks in biotechnological development, including with respect to the development of novel cellular therapies, and the clinical trial and regulatory approval process; and risks associated with Celularity’s current liquidity, as well as developments relating to Celularity’s competitors and industry, along with those risk factors set forth under the caption “Risk Factors” in Celularity’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 31, 2023, and other filings with the SEC.
