15th December, 2020 – Glycostem today announced that the first patient has been dosed in its pivotal phase I/IIa trial of oNKord® for the treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). The WiNK trial will enroll 33 AML patients at eight clinical sites based in five European countries. oNKord® is the company’s first-generation off-the-shelf allogeneic NK cellular immunotherapy product. Glycostem is furthermore developing a range of second (CAR-NK) and third generation (TCR-NK) NK products in-house.
“We are thrilled about the first patient being dosed in this pivotal trial. This important milestone potentially paves the way for a positive impact on the lives of patients with AML who are at high risk of relapse. The preliminary efficacy data obtained with oNKord® is very promising and we are looking forward to the data from this study, which will allow us to draw conclusions regarding oNKord® safety and tolerability and most importantly its efficacy for treatment of AML patients,” tells Troels Jordansen, CEO at Glycostem.
