Medigene AG: Medigene AG reports on Annual General Meeting 2019
Martinsried/Munich (pta/22.05.2019/18:00) Medigene AG (FSE: MDG1, Prime Standard), a clinical stage immuno-oncology company focusing on the development of T cell immunotherapies, reports on the Company's Annual General Meeting which was held in Munich today.
The Executive Management Board of the Company informed the Medigene shareholders about the progress and results of the 2018 fiscal year and about major events in the first months of 2019, including the start of patient treatment in the Phase I/II clinical trial of Medigene's TCR-T therapy MDG1011, progress in the TCR partnership with bluebird bio, the completion of an additional cell therapy partnership with Roivant/Cytovant as well as positive interim results from the ongoing Phase I/II clinical trial with Medigene's DC vaccine.
Medigene also announced today that the Company has selected its HA-1-specific TCR as Medigene's next clinical TCR-T therapy candidate, MDG1021, scheduled to start clinical development in cooperation with the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) in 2020.
In addition, Medigene announced today regulatory approval of an amendment to the trial design of its ongoing Phase I/II trial with its TCR-T therapy MDG1011, which is expected to further accelerate patient recruitment together with the increase in clinical trial sites. This amendment broadens the AML patient population potentially eligible for the trial by allowing patients with relapse after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation to participate in the trial. In addition, an earlier leukapheresis procedure will be allowed, if patients are positive for the HLA and PRAME criteria and might become trial candidates in the near future.
