- The T cell antigen coupler (TAC) is a novel, proprietary chimeric receptor that facilitates the re‑direction of T cells to tumor cells and activates T cells by co‑opting the endogenous T cell receptor complex, with the goal to elicit a safe and durable anti‑tumor response. In preclinical models of cancer, TAC‑engineered T cells effectively eradicate tumor cells in vitro and in vivo without TAC‑related toxicities.
- TACTIC‑2 (NCT04727151) is an open‑label, multicenter phase I/II study that aims to establish safety, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D), pharmacokinetic profile, and efficacy of TAC01‑HER2 in patients with HER2‑positive solid tumors (i.e. breast, lung, pancreatic, colorectal, gastric, endometrial, ovarian, and others) whom have progressed on prior anti‑cancer therapies.
- We present a clinical update from Cohorts 1 & 2 (8 participants) that highlights safety and efficacy data; the study further elucidates potential therapeutic impact to patients with HER2 overexpressed solid tumors.
