Fate Therapeutics, Inc.

Clinical Presentations to Include Initial Clinical Data of FT576 BCMA-targeted CAR NK Cell Product Candidate for Multiple Myeloma and FT819 CD19-targeted CAR T-cell Product Candidate for B-cell Lymphoma

Preclinical Data of FT555 GPRC5D-targeted CAR NK Cell Collaboration Candidate for Multiple Myeloma to be Jointly Presented with Janssen

Novel Approaches to Eliminate Patient Conditioning and Promote Functional Persistence of Off-the-shelf, iPSC-derived Cell Therapies to be Highlighted

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fate Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: FATE), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of programmed cellular immunotherapies for patients with cancer, today announced that fourteen presentations for the Company’s induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) product platform were accepted for presentation at the 64th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition being held in New Orleans, Louisiana, or virtually, December 10-13, 2022.

The presentations include initial Phase 1 clinical data for FT576, the Company’s multiplexed-engineered, iPSC-derived CAR NK cell product candidate targeting BCMA for multiple myeloma, and for FT819, the Company’s iPSC-derived CAR T-cell product candidate targeting CD19 for B-cell lymphoma. In addition, the Company will jointly present with its collaboration partner Janssen preclinical data for FT555, a multiplexed-engineered, iPSC-derived CAR NK cell product candidate targeting GPRC5D, a tumor-associated orphan G-protein-coupled receptor found to be highly expressed on myeloma cells. In May, Janssen exercised its commercial option to FT555, and the companies are conducting IND-enabling activities to support first-in-human clinical investigation of FT555 for the treatment of multiple myeloma as monotherapy and in combination with the CD38-targeted monoclonal antibody daratumumab.

The Company will also highlight multiple novel strategies to eliminate the need for patient conditioning for off-the-shelf cell therapy. These strategies include arming iPSC-derived effector cells with an alloimmune defense receptor (ADR), which targets 41BB-expressing alloreactive host immune cells to promote expansion, persistence, and anti-tumor activity; the combined genetic ablation of the adhesion molecules CD54 and CD58, which reduces immune synapse formation resulting in host immune cell evasion; and the genetic ablation of CD38 in combination with CD38-targeted monoclonal antibody therapy, which uniquely targets and depletes CD38-expressing activated host immune cells. Details of the ASH presentations are as follows:

About Fate Therapeutics’ iPSC Product Platform
The Company’s proprietary induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) product platform enables mass production of off-the-shelf, engineered, homogeneous cell products that are designed to be administered with multiple doses to deliver more effective pharmacologic activity, including in combination with other cancer treatments. Human iPSCs possess the unique dual properties of unlimited self-renewal and differentiation potential into all cell types of the body. The Company’s first-of-kind approach involves engineering human iPSCs in a one-time genetic modification event and selecting a single engineered iPSC for maintenance as a clonal master iPSC line. Analogous to master cell lines used to manufacture biopharmaceutical drug products such as monoclonal antibodies, clonal master iPSC lines are a renewable source for manufacturing cell therapy products which are well-defined and uniform in composition, can be mass produced at significant scale in a cost-effective manner, and can be delivered off-the-shelf for patient treatment. As a result, the Company’s platform is uniquely designed to overcome numerous limitations associated with the production of cell therapies using patient- or donor-sourced cells, which is logistically complex and expensive and is subject to batch-to-batch and cell-to-cell variability that can affect clinical safety and efficacy. Fate Therapeutics’ iPSC product platform is supported by an intellectual property portfolio of over 350 issued patents and 150 pending patent applications.

About Fate Therapeutics, Inc.
Fate Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of first-in-class cellular immunotherapies for patients with cancer. The Company has established a leadership position in the clinical development and manufacture of universal, off-the-shelf cell products using its proprietary induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) product platform. The Company’s immuno-oncology pipeline includes off-the-shelf, iPSC-derived natural killer (NK) cell and T-cell product candidates, which are designed to synergize with well-established cancer therapies, including immune checkpoint inhibitors and monoclonal antibodies, and to target tumor-associated antigens using chimeric antigen receptors (CARs). Fate Therapeutics is headquartered in San Diego, CA. For more information, please visit www.fatetherapeutics.com.
