WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TScan Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: TCRX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of T cell receptor (TCR)-engineered T cell therapies (TCR-T) for the treatment of patients with cancer, today announced the acceptance of a trial in progress abstract related to its lead candidates, TSC-100 and TSC-101, at the upcoming American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, being held from December 10-13, 2022, in New Orleans.
Title: Trial in Progress: A Phase 1 Umbrella Study of TCR-Engineered T Cells That Target HA-1 (TSC-100) and HA-2 (TSC-101) to Treat Residual Leukemia After Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation
Presenter: Ran Reshef, M.D., Columbia University Medical Center
Abstract Number: 3325
Session: Cellular Immunotherapies: Early Phase and Investigational Therapies: Poster II
Date & Time: Sunday, December 11, 2022, from 6:00-8:00pm CT
Location: Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Hall D
About TScan’s Hematologic Malignancies Program
TScan’s two lead TCR-T therapy candidates, TSC-100 and TSC-101, are designed to target HA-1 and HA-2, respectively, to prevent relapse in AML, ALL and MDS patients undergoing allogeneic haploidentical hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) with reduced intensity conditioning (RIC). Up to 40% of patients who receive HCT with RIC relapse within two years after the transplant, at which point there are limited treatment options and poor prognosis. The longer-term objective is to enable more patients to maintain prolonged remission after HCT using RIC, a more tolerable chemotherapy than the myeloablative conditioning, followed by TScan’s TCR-T. The Phase 1 umbrella trial (NCT05473910) for TSC-100 and TSC-101 is open for enrollment.
