Kiadis Pharma hosted a Key Opinion Leader meeting on the topic of ‘Addressing the Risks of Haploidentical HSCT in Blood Cancer’ on Wednesday, May 31 from 12:00pm – 1:30pm Eastern Time in New York City.
The meeting featured presentations by key opinion leaders Steven Devine, MD (Ohio State University) and Denis-Claude Roy, MD (University of Montréal), who discussed the risks of haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in blood cancer, specifically Graft-versus-Host-Disease (GVHD) and cancer relapse, with the PTCy/Baltimore protocol and T-cell depleted transplantations.
Kiadis Pharma’s management team, led by Arthur Lahr, CEO, provided an update on their lead asset ATIR101, currently in EMA registration and Phase III clinical development for patients with acute leukemia. Orphan drug ATIR101, administered as an adjunctive immunotherapy after a haploidentical HSCT, contains potent, allo-depleted, mature immune cells from a haploidentical donor, that provide immediate protection against relapse, with minimal risk of causing GVHD.
