Activated Natural Killer Cells Complexed with Bispecific Antibody May Provide New Treatment Option for Patients with Advanced Lymphoma; Study Presented at AACR Annual Meeting

Natural killer (NK) cells derived from cord blood that were activated and complexed with a CD30/CD16A bispecific antibody elicited an 89 percent overall response rate in patients with relapsed or refractory CD30+ lymphoma, according to results from a phase I/II clinical trial presented at the AACR Annual Meeting 2022, held April 8-13 in New Orleans. “We were favorably surprised by the quality of tumor responses in patients who had resistant lymphomas, some of whom were in a very poor condition at enrollment,” said Yago Nieto, MD, PhD, a Professor of Medicine in the Department of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, who presented the study.
