By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

November 17, 2020 -- Precigen said that the first patients in two phase I clinical trials have been treated with UltraCAR-T cells manufactured by its UltraPorator system.

In an ongoing phase I study conducted in collaboration with the University of Washington/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, PRGN-3005 UltraCAR-T cells were inserted in the intraperitoneal arm of patients as part of the study for advanced ovarian cancer patients, Precigen said.

Meanwhile, PRGN-3006 UltraCAR-T cells have also been used in dosing of patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and higher risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) as part of an ongoing phase I/IB study that's being conducted in collaboration with the Moffitt Cancer Center.
