NY-ESO-1, a member of the cancer-testis family of tumor antigens, is expressed in ∼ 70% of Synovial Sarcoma (SS) cases. NY-ESO-1c259 SPEAR T-cellsTM recognizing the NY-ESO-1 derived SLLMWITQC peptide complexed with HLA-A*02 have been developed for study in SS.


The primary endpoint of overall response rate [ORR (CR + PR)] will be evaluated in high NY-ESO expressers [2 + , 3+ NY-ESO in ≥50% of tumor cells by IHC (Cohorts 1, 3, and 4)] and low expressers [1+ in >1%, 2 + , 3+ in


Enrollment in cohort 1 is complete (12 pts), ongoing in cohorts 2 and 3 (2 in each). ORR in cohort 1 is 50% (1 CR; 5 PR). Two pts receiving non target doses (


The NY-ESO-1c259 SPEAR T-cellsTM have promising efficacy and acceptable safety profile in pts with SS who highly express NY-ESO. Efficacy and safety data will be further evaluated and presented from subjects enrolled in all cohorts.
