In a Phase I/II study with ATIR™, safety and proof of concept were confirmed in terms of absence of grade III/IV GvHD, reduced rates of infection, reduced Transplant Related Mortality and high Overall Survival.
ATIR™ is currently in Phase II clinical development and has been granted Orphan Drug Designation both in the EU and the USA. In these regions, 20,000 to 25,000 patients a year are unable to find a suitable standard of care matched donor. Together, both regions represent a combined primary market potential of more than EUR 1 billion per year.
