MONTRÉAL, November 26, 2019 – ExCellThera Inc., an advanced biotechnology company delivering molecules and bioengineering solutions to expand stem and immune cells for therapeutic use, announced today that data from a Phase I/II clinical trial using its lead technology, ECT-001, will be presented at the 61st Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in Orlando, Florida. Details of the presentation are as follows:
Date & Time: Sunday, December 8, 2019; 6:00-8:00 p.m. ET
Title: UM171 Modified Cord Blood Achieves Excellent Survival and Disease Control after 2 Years of Follow-up in High and Very High Risk Malignancies
Abstract Number: 3245
Lead Author: Sandra Cohen, MD, FRCP(C), Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology, Stem Cell Transplant Program, Department of Medicine, University of Montreal and Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, Montreal, QC, Canada
Location: Orange County Convention Center, Hall B
The ECT-001 technology is a combination of a small molecule, UM171, and an optimized culture system. The technology, capable of expanding the number of stem and immune cells exponentially in as little as seven days, is used in novel curative cord blood transplant therapies for patients with blood cancers, allowing rapid engraftment, greatly reduced incidence of transplant-related mortality, low risk of chronic graft-versus-host disease and low risk of relapse, resulting in better outcomes for patients.
