About Severe Regimen-Related Toxicities
High-dose therapy and autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation is considered a standard-of-care method to cure aggressive systemic lymphoma. High dose therapy effectively eradicates cancer cells but also damages healthy tissue, which can lead to severe toxicities. Severe toxicities can involve multiple organs (oral-alimentary tract, bone marrow, lung, kidney, heart liver and brain). Most affected is the lining of the oral-gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The oral GI tract continually renews its mucosal lining on a daily basis. Because of the collateral damage from high dose chemotherapy, the oral GI tract loses its ability to renew its lining, leading to inflammation (mucositis) and breakdown, causing nausea, vomiting and diarrhea that are refractory to available medications and require prolonged hospitalization. Severe oral GI toxicities can occur as frequently as 50% and cause profound misery to patients. The rates and severity increase with age and, thus, many older patients are turned away from the curative high dose therapy due to the risks of severe toxicities. 

About AB-205
AB-205 represents a new and unique advanced cell-and-gene therapy product. AB-205 consists of allogeneic (off-the shelf) 'universal' E-CEL® (human engineered cord endothelial) cells.  Intravenous AB-205 is given after chemotherapy/radiation (high-dose therapy) conditioning and on the same day as autologous (patient's own) hematopoietic (blood stem) cell transplant. AB-205 was recently granted both the Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) Designation and Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Angiocrine is actively planning to advance AB-205 into a multi-center single registration Phase 3 trial based on the results of the Phase 1b/2 study.
