Neon Therapeutics, a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company developing neoantigen therapies, today announced the successful completion of an additional $36 million extension to its Series B financing which, combined with $70 million announced in January 2017, brings the total raised during this Series B crossover round to $106 million.
Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have identified another cancer-surface molecule, CD22, and begun trials on B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients using an immuno-oncology approach similar to CAR-T. In the Phase I trial, 15 of the 21 patients who had previously relapsed or did not respond to anti-CD19 CAR-T, were treated with an anti-CD22 CAR-T therapy. Ten of the 15 patients had already received treatment for CD19-targeted treatment.
