Syndax Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: SNDX) is a biopharmaceutical company developing an innovative pipeline of cancer therapies at various stages of clinical and pre-clinical development. On May 30th, 2018, the Company and Nektar Therapeutics announced a non-exclusive, clinical collaboration to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Nektar's NKTR-214, a CD122-biased agonist, in combination with entinostat, Syndax's oral, small molecule Class 1 specific HDAC inhibitor, in patients with metastatic melanoma who have previously progressed on treatment with an anti-PD-1 (programmed death receptor-1) agent. In preclinical testing, the results of which were recently presented at the 2018 American Association of Cancer Research Annual Meeting, the combination of entinostat and NKTR-214 significantly inhibited tumor growth in tumor models of kidney and colon cancer. The anti-tumor activity of the combination was accompanied by a dramatic increase in the activation and cytotoxic activity of CD8+ T cells in the tumor, along with modulation of immune suppressor cells found in the tumor microenvironment.

Sorrento Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: SRNE) is a clinical stage, antibody-centric, biopharmaceutical company developing new therapies to turn malignant cancers into manageable and possibly curable diseases. Sorrento's multimodal multipronged approach to fighting cancer is made possible by its extensive immuno-oncology platforms, including key assets such as fully human antibodies, clinical stage immuno-cellular therapies ('CAR-T'), intracellular targeting antibodies ('iTAbs'), antibody-drug conjugates ('ADC'), and clinical stage oncolytic virus ('SephrevirŽ'). Recently, the Company and Celularity Inc. announced that they have started screening patients for its leading CD38 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy drug development program, following FDA review allowing clinical trial initiation. The Companies' CD38 CAR-T program is their most advanced program targeting this difficult-to-treat condition. This trial is currently the only active US-based clinical trial targeting CD38 using a CAR-T cell therapy.

Athersys Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHX) is an international biotechnology company engaged in the development of therapeutic products designed to extend and enhance the quality of human life. The Company is developing its MultiStemŽ cell therapy product, a patented, adult-derived 'off-the-shelf' stem cell product, initially for disease indications in the neurological, cardiovascular, and inflammatory and immune disease areas, and has several ongoing clinical trials evaluating this potential regenerative medicine product. Recently, the Company announced that the first patient has been enrolled its Phase 3 study entitled, MultiStem Administration for Stroke Treatment and Enhanced Recovery Study-2 ('MASTERS-2') to evaluate MultiStemŽ cell therapy treatment of patients who have suffered an ischemic stroke. The MASTERS-2 clinical trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial designed to enroll 300 patients in North America and Europe who have suffered moderate to moderate-severe ischemic stroke. The enrolled subjects will receive either a single intravenous dose of MultiStem cell therapy or placebo, administered within 18 to 36 hours of the occurrence of the stroke, in addition to the standard of care.

(NASDAQ: ZIOP) is a Boston-based biotechnology company focused on the development of next-generation immunotherapies utilizing gene- and cell-based therapies to treat patients with cancer. Recently, the Company announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) placed on clinical hold a Phase 1 trial to evaluate CD19-specific CAR-T therapies manufactured under point-of-care and requested additional information in support of the investigational new drug (IND) application for the trial. Ziopharm, Precigen Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intrexon Corporation and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the IND sponsor, are seeking to conduct a clinical trial to evaluate CAR+ T cells manufactured with Sleeping Beauty technology as an investigational treatment for patients with relapsed or refractory, CD19+ leukemias and lymphomas. CAR+ T cells very-rapidly manufactured with the Sleeping Beauty platform for this third-generation trial are designed to co-express CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR, membrane-bound interleukin 15 and a safety switch. The FDA has requested additional information relative to Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls. Ziopharm and its partners will address the FDA's requests, and the initiation of this trial may be delayed.
