We are highlighting one of the supporters of the Cancer Care campaign, Iovance Biotherapeutics. Iovance Biotherapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biotherapeutics company focused on the development of cancer immunotherapy products for the treatment of various cancers. The company's lead product candidate is an adoptive cell therapy using tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) technology being investigated for the treatment of patients with metastatic melanoma, recurrent and/or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, recurrent, metastatic or persistent cervical cancer, and locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. Iovance's TIL technology has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") and its' safety and efficacy has not been determined.
TIL manufacturing at Iovance starts with isolating tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) from a surgically resected piece of a patient's tumor. The isolated TIL, which may recognize multiple patient-specific antigens expressed by the tumor, is expanded to billions of cells. Prior to infusion of TIL, the patients are treated with non-myeloablative lymphodepletion preconditioning to remove the suppressive tumor micro-environment. Once the TIL is infused, the patients receive up to 6 doses of IL-2 to support expansion and anti-tumor activity of the TIL against the tumor. Iovance is actively recruiting patients for several investigational Phase 2 clinical trials including:
o C-144-01: a multicenter study to assess the efficacy and safety of autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-144) for treatment of patients with metastatic melanoma
o C-145-03: a multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-145) for the treatment of patients with recurrent metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck
o C-145-04: a multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-145) in patients with recurrent, metastatic, or persistent cervical carcinoma
o IOV-LUN-201: a multicenter study to assess the efficacy and safety of autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-145) alone and in combination with anti-PD-L1 inhibitor durvalumab (MEDI4736) in patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
