Glycostem and MolMed collaborate on allogenic CAR-NK therapies


Glycostem and MolMed signed a binding term sheet for the development and manufacturing of new NK cells–based allogeneic CAR (Chimeric Antigen Receptors). The Master Agreement will be finalized by September 30th, 2018.

According to the agreement, Glycostem and MolMed will collaborate on an exclusive base in developing and manufacturing engineered NK cells targeted to three tumor antigens: Glycostem will be responsible for the final product GMP manufacturing and release, while MolMed will have exclusive rights for the exploitation of the resulting products and Glycostem will receive upfront payments, milestones and royalties on the developed products.

Troels Jordansen, Glycostem CEO, commented: “We are very proud to be teaming up with one of the most innovative cellular therapy companies around and jointly develop mold-breaking products for the help of doctors and patients. The synergy between MolMed and Glycostem is tangible and we are confident it could lead to exciting results in the short term. This is also the initiation of Glycostem’s in-house development program in our new state-of-the-art facility in the Netherlands. It is out of the same facility that we expect to have GMP approval for our closed-system production system by the end of 2018. This will allow us to expand our clinical trial program and enter pivotal for oNKord early 2019.”
