Mustang Bio Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial Results and Recent Corporate Highlights
WORCESTER, Mass., May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mustang Bio, Inc. (“Mustang”) (NASDAQ: MBIO), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on translating today’s medical breakthroughs in cell and gene therapies into potential cures for hematologic cancers, solid tumors and rare genetic diseases, today announced financial results and recent corporate highlights for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Manuel Litchman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Mustang, said, “Mustang started strong in 2022, with multiple data announcements and key clinical milestones achieved across our robust pipeline of CAR T cell and gene therapies. In the first quarter, data were presented on three of our CAR T cell therapies and our oncolytic virus clinical candidate at prestigious medical conferences by our academic collaborators at City of Hope and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (“Fred Hutch”). City of Hope’s Dr. Tanya Dorff presented Phase 1 clinical trial data on MB-105, our prostate stem cell antigen (“PSCA”) chimeric antigen receptor (“CAR”) T-cell therapy for treatment of PSCA-positive metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (“mCRPC”) at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (“ASCO”) Genitourinary (“GU”) Cancers Symposium that demonstrated its potential as a PSCA-targeted CAR T-cell therapy for prostate cancer and other solid tumors that express PSCA. Fred Hutch’s Dr. Mazyar Shadman presented updated interim Phase 1/2 clinical trial data on MB-106, our CD20-targeted, autologous CAR T cell therapy for treatment of relapsed or refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (“NHL”) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (“CLL”), at the 2022 Tandem Meetings I Transplantation & Cellular Therapy Meetings of the American Society of Transplantation and Cellular Therapy and Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research (“2022 Tandem Meetings”) and at the 4th International Workshop on CAR-T and Immunotherapies (“iwCAR-T”). The data demonstrated high efficacy and a favorable safety profile, with an overall response rate (“ORR”) of 96% and complete response (“CR”) rate of 72% observed in all patients across all dose levels. The data included two patients previously treated with CD19-directed CAR T therapy who relapsed and responded to MB-106, demonstrating its potential as an immunotherapy option for these patients. Additionally, City of Hope’s Dr. Christine Brown presented Phase 1 clinical trial data from a late-breaking poster regarding MB-108 (C134 oncolytic virus licensed from Nationwide Children’s Hospital) and MB-101 (IL13Ra2-targeted CAR T cell therapy licensed from City of Hope) for the treatment of recurrent glioblastoma (“rGBM”), at the American Association for Cancer Research (“AACR”) Annual Meeting 2022 that support the safety of administering these two therapies sequentially to optimize treatment in a regimen designated as MB-109.”
“Looking ahead, we have additional upcoming data presentations for MB-106 at the European Hematology Association 2022 (“EHA2022”) Hybrid Congress and for our MB-107 gene therapy for the treatment of X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (“XSCID”) in newly diagnosed infants under the age of two at the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (“ASGCT”) 25th Annual Meeting. We plan to dose the first patient under Mustang’s IND in a multicenter Phase 1/2 clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of MB-106 for relapsed or refractory B-NHL and CLL at the end of this quarter. In the second half of 2022, we plan to file an IND to initiate a Phase 1 clinical trial for MB-109 for the treatment of rGBM and enroll the first patient in a pivotal multicenter Phase 2 clinical trial under Mustang’s IND to evaluate MB-107. It’s an incredibly exciting time for our team and we look forward to continuing to advance our cell and gene therapies to help meet the needs of patients with hard-to-treat diseases.”
