ECT-001 Commercialization Strategy

  • Complete phase I/II clinical trials and document safety and efficacy (2018-2019)
  • Pivotal phase III clinical trial (begins in 2019)
  • Regulatory approval (2022)
  • Potential for accelerated time to market for orphan diseases (2020-2021)

ExCellThera’s game-changing solution integrates easily into the current treatment paradigm and demonstrates obvious clinical benefit and reduced patient morbidity in patients with malignant hematological disorders, including potential enhanced graft vs. tumor (GVT) and anti-viral effects related to the massive production of innate immune cell precursors.

ECT-001 opens new avenues for immuno-oncology indications and is expected to provide major benefits to patients, healthcare providers, and reimbursement authorities.
