CYNK-101 is under clinical development by Celularity and currently in Phase II for Adenocarcinoma Of The Gastroesophageal Junction. According to GlobalData, Phase II drugs for Adenocarcinoma Of The Gastroesophageal Junction have a 51% phase transition success rate (PTSR) indication benchmark for progressing into Phase III. GlobalData’s report assesses how CYNK-101’s drug-specific PTSR and Likelihood of Approval (LoA) scores compare to the indication benchmarks. Buy the report here.

GlobalData tracks drug-specific phase transition and likelihood of approval scores, in addition to indication benchmarks based off 18 years of historical drug development data. Attributes of the drug, company and its clinical trials play a fundamental role in drug-specific PTSR and likelihood of approval.

CYNK-101 overview

CYNK-101 is under development for the treatment of lymphoma and locally advanced unresectable or metastatic HER2/neu positive gastric, gastroesophageal junction (G/GEJ) adenocarcinoma and EGFR+ non-small cell lung cancer and head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. It is administered by infusion. The therapeutic candidate comprises of engineered human placental CD34+ derived NK cell product with genetically modified CD16 variant (CD16VP) using lentivirus. The drug candidates are being developed based on immuno-modulatory placenta-derived allogenic stem cell therapy (IMPACT) technology platform.
