AUSTIN, Texas and HAMILTON, ON and SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Triumvira Immunologics, a clinical-stage company developing novel, targeted autologous and allogeneic T cell therapeutics that co-opt the natural biology of T cells to treat patients with solid tumors, today announced that positive data from its Phase I/II trial investigating the safety and efficacy of autologous TAC01-HER2 in refractory solid tumors (TACTIC-2/NCT04727151), will be presented at the 2023 American Society Of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, held June 2-6 in Chicago. Benjamin L. Schlechter, MD, from Harvard Medical School, and a Senior Physician in Gastrointestinal Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, will highlight updated clinical data demonstrating the potential of TAC01-HER2 as a targeted therapy for patients who are refractory to existing HER2-targeted therapies.
“We are encouraged by the promising results from the TACTIC-2 trial, which demonstrate the safety and compelling clinical activity of autologous TAC01-HER2 in refractory solid tumors,” said Deyaa Adib, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Triumvira Immunologics. “These findings suggest that TAC technology has the potential to transform the treatment landscape for patients with HER2-positive gastric and esophageal cancers, offering a novel approach that harnesses the natural biology of T cells. We look forward to further exploring the therapeutic benefits of TAC01-HER2 in the phase 2 component of the trial and advancing its development towards improving patient outcomes in this population that have been deprived of significant therapeutic progress over the last 40 years.”
