Kiadis Pharma has applied for marketing authorization from the EMA for its T cell immune therapy, which could halt graft-versus-host disease (GVHD).
Kiadis‘ MAA with the EMA doesn’t come as a surprise. After the EMA recently accepted the Biotech’s Pediatric Investigation Plan for its lead product ATIR101, the MAA was just a matter of time. Based in Amsterdam, the company is developing T cell therapies to make bone marrow transplantations safer and more effective.
The Biotech’s lead candidate, ATIR101 is a T-cell immunotherapy that eliminates alloreactive cells from the donor to minimize the risk of GVHD after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), currently the most effective treatment for most blood cancers. The therapy has completed a pivotal Phase II study and is currently being investigated in Phase III for blood cancers in adults. With its innovative therapy, Kiadis is pioneering the field by going for a major issue in HSCT.
