Gamida Cell Announces Data to Be Presented at 63rd ASH Annual Meeting
New data on omidubicel, a potentially life-saving treatment for patients with blood cancers in need of stem cell transplant, will be presented during an oral presentation showing that hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with omidubicel is associated with robust immune constitution and lower rates of severe infection compared to standard umbilical cord blood transplantation. Additionally, there will be three poster presentations and one e-publication highlighting additional clinical data from omidubicel and GDA-201, the company’s natural killer (NK) cell immunotherapy in development for the treatment of hematologic and solid tumors with standard of care antibody therapies. Together the data that will be presented at ASH reflect the progress across Gamida Cell’s NAM-enabled pipeline of cell therapies being developed as potentially curative approaches for cancer patients in need of new and better therapeutic options.

Lead Author: Dima Yackoubov,
Omidubicel is an advanced cell therapy under development as a potential life-saving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell (bone marrow) transplant for patients with hematologic malignancies (blood cancers), for which it has been granted Breakthrough Status by the FDA. Omidubicel is also being evaluated in a Phase 1/2 clinical study in patients with severe aplastic anemia (NCT03173937). The aplastic anemia investigational new drug application is currently filed with the FDA under the brand name CordIn®, which is the same investigational development candidate as omidubicel. For more information on clinical trials of omidubicel, please visit www.clinicaltrials.gov.
Omidubicel is an investigational therapy, and its safety and efficacy have not been established by the FDA or any other health authority.
GDA-201 is an investigational therapy, and its safety and efficacy have not been established by the FDA or any other health authority.
