ZUG, Switzerland and BOSTON, Dec. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CRISPR Therapeutics (Nasdaq: CRSP), a biopharmaceutical company focused on creating transformative gene-based medicines for serious diseases, today provided an update on its immuno-oncology pipeline of CRISPR/Cas9 gene-edited allogeneic chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell product candidates.

Key Points: 
  • Preliminary data from ongoing clinical trials of its next-generation candidates, CTX112 targeting CD19 and CTX131 targeting CD70, suggest that these candidates may improve upon that clinical profile.
  • In addition, the next-generation candidates exhibit increased manufacturing robustness, with a higher and more consistent number of CAR T cells produced per batch.
  • While we saw benefits from consolidation dosing with CTX110, we believe CTX112 could result in even better outcomes for patients,” said PK Morrow, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of CRISPR Therapeutics.
  • The safety profile of CTX110 in Part B remained consistent with the positively differentiated safety profile observed in Part A.
