Caladrius Biosciences, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops cell based therapeutics in the United States, has signed a material transfer agreement with the University of Southern California and the California Institute of Technology.
It was reported on Friday that the contract has been signed to explore next-generation strategies for the company's core cancer technology. The research collaboration will be based on the company's manufacturing protocol for its lead cancer program, CLBS20 (NBS20).
All the parties will find new techniques to further improve the isolation of cancer initiating cells, with the aim of increasing the number of cancer patients that are likely to benefit from treatment. Presently, the product is being assessed in a Phase III trial (Intus Study) for the treatment of late-stage melanoma.
