Jasper Therapeutics to Host In-Person Key Opinion Leader Webinar on Transforming Hematopoietic Stem Cell Therapies
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jasper Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: JSPR), a biotechnology company focused on hematopoietic cell transplant therapies, today announced that it will host an in-person key opinion leader (KOL) webinar on transforming the field of hematopoietic stem cell therapies on April 28, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. ET.
The webinar will feature presentations from KOLs Lori Muffly, M.D., M.S. of Stanford University and David Sallman, M.D. of Moffitt Cancer Center. During the presentation, Dr. Muffly and Dr. Sallman will provide an overview of the current landscape and unmet medical need in hematopoietic stem cell transplant conditioning as well as myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) treatment.
Members of the Jasper Therapeutics management team will discuss how JSP191, a targeted, monoclonal antibody currently in clinical development as a conditioning agent, may address the limitations of transplant conditioning. Additionally, management will demonstrate the potential new therapeutic approach for JSP191 in disease modification for lower-risk MDS patients.
“We are excited about the progress of JSP191 in our severe combined immunodeficiency and acute myeloid leukemia/ MDS transplant studies as well as our new efforts in JSP191 as a therapeutic for lower risk MDS patients,” said Ronald Martell, President and CEO of Jasper Therapeutics. “We are looking forward to having these clinicians provide insight on our recent clinical data presented at the Tandem Transplant and Cellular Therapy Meeting (TCT) and the unmet need for lower-risk MDS patients.”
Following the formal presentation, Dr. Muffly, Dr. Sallman, and members of company management will be available for a live question and answer session.

About Jasper Therapeutics
Jasper Therapeutics is a biotechnology company focused on the development of novel curative therapies based on the biology of the hematopoietic stem cell. The company is advancing two potentially groundbreaking programs. JSP191, an anti-CD117 monoclonal antibody, is in clinical development as a conditioning agent that clears hematopoietic stem cells from bone marrow in patients undergoing hematopoietic cell transplantation. It is designed to enable safer and more effective curative allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplants and gene therapies. In parallel, Jasper Therapeutics is advancing its preclinical mRNA engineered hematopoietic stem cell (eHSC) platform, which is designed to overcome key limitations of allogeneic and autologous gene-edited stem cell grafts. Both innovative programs have the potential to transform the field and expand hematopoietic stem cell therapy cures to a greater number of patients with life-threatening cancers, genetic diseases and autoimmune diseases than is possible today.
