IND-Enabling Programs for Adoptive Cell Therapies, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

By: via PRWeb

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will discuss in vitro verification of product function and animal model selection in preclinical studies. Attendees will learn about pharmacology and toxicity studies to guide determination of biologically relevant and clinically safe dose levels, as well as the biological disposition of product including tumor cell infiltration, persistence and viral shedding.

TORONTO (PRWEB) June 02, 2020

Adoptive cell therapies have ushered in a paradigm shift in the treatment of cancers with the watershed FDA approvals of two Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell (CAR-T) therapies in 2017. In addition to CAR-Ts, other cell-based immunotherapies in development have emerged including modified T-cell receptor T-cells (TCR-Ts), Natural Killer (NKs) cells and Dendritic Cells (DCs).

In this webinar, presenters will discuss aspects of an adoptive cell therapy preclinical program that are central to an IND/IMPD submission – namely, in vitro and in vivo pharmacology, toxicology and pharmacokinetics (PK) assessments using the appropriate models & test systems. Together, these studies help to guide determination of clinically safe and biologically relevant dose levels, establish safety endpoints for clinical study monitoring and elucidate the biological disposition of administered cell product.

Join Maryland Franklin, PhD, Executive Director of Scientific Development, Preclinical Oncology, Covance and Brian E. McIntosh, PhD, Study Director and Scientific Lead Cell, Gene and Regenerative Therapies, Covance in a live webinar on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 10am EDT (3pm BST/UK).
