Celularity Presents Data of The Effect of Its T-Cell Platform on Multiple Hematological And Solid Tumors at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting

Company presents results from in vivo studies of PT-CD16VS, a genetically modified allogeneic cell therapy derived from human placental circulating T (P-T) cells, in combination with various monoclonal antibodies

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., June 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Celularity Inc. (NASDAQ: CELU) (“Celularity”), a regenerative and cellular medicine company developing placental-derived allogeneic cell therapies and advanced biomaterial products, announced today that it presented in vivo data from its T-cell therapy platform at this year’s ASCO Annual Meeting in Chicago. These data show that PT-CD16VS, Celularity’s T-Cell preclinical asset, has potent in vitro and in vivo activity and has the potential to be combined with various monoclonal antibodies to target multiple cancers. Please find the link to the abstract here.

Celularity has adopted a “universal receptor” approach to develop a platform of genetically modified T-cells expressing a proprietary CD16 to be combined with various approved antibodies to address multiple cancers and other conditions.

Data demonstrating PT-CD16VSs activity in combination with trastuzumab against HER2-positive cancers has already been presented at AACR in April. These data further build on this to demonstrate much broader potential across multiple hematological and solid tumors.

“These important data further demonstrate the potential of combining Celularity’s placental-derived cell therapy platform with currently available antibody therapies to address difficult-to-treat cancers and avoid some of the challenges of traditional cell therapy, including antigen escape and tolerability,” said Dr. Robert Hariri, Celularity’s CEO and Founder. “We are also continuing to advance our pipeline to address aging-related healthcare challenges beyond cancer including cellular senescence. This work highlights the deep expertise and capabilities in cell therapy resident at Celularity and our ability to modify and engineer those cells in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.”

About Celularity
Celularity Inc. (NASDAQ: CELU) is an innovative regenerative and cellular medicine company. It is developing and commercializing advanced biomaterial products and allogeneic, cryopreserved, placental-derived cell therapies, all derived from the postpartum placenta. What sets Celularity apart is its therapeutic programs that target aging-related diseases, including degenerative diseases, cancer, and immune disorders, using mesenchymal-like adherent stromal cells (MLASCs), T-cells engineered with CAR (CAR T-cells), and genetically modified and unmodified natural killer (NK) cells. Celularity’s unique approach, harnessing the placenta’s biology and ready availability, is paving the way for therapeutic solutions that address significant unmet global needs for effective, accessible, and affordable therapies.
