22.0189:  A Phase 1/2, open-label study of PD-1 knockout tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (IOV-4001) in participants with unresectable or metastatic melanoma or Stage III or IV non-small-cell lung cancer

Principal Investigator: Jason Chesney, MD, PhD

Phase: I/II

Description:  This study is the first-in-human study of IOV-4001, a genetically modified autologous tumor- infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) product. IOV-4001 is expected to have antitumor activity through its capacity to directly target and kill tumor cells in a manner that is similar to non-genome-edited TIL, but with the potential for enhanced antitumor activity due to disruption of PDCD1, the gene for programmed cell death protein-1 (PD-1).

Principal Investigator: Jason A Chesney, MD, PhD

Phase: II

Description: RPL-001-16 is a Phase 1/2, open label, dose escalation and expansion clinical study of RP1 alone and in combination with nivolumab in adult subjects with advanced and/or refractory solid tumors, to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D), as well as to evaluate preliminary efficacy.


18.0336:  A Phase 2, Multicenter Study of Autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes

(LN-144 or LN-145) in Patients with Solid Tumors    

Principal Investigator:  Jason A Chesney, MD, PhD

Description:  A prospective, open-label, multi-cohort, non-randomized, multicenter Phase 2 study evaluating adoptive cell therapy (ACT) with TIL LN-144 (Lifileucel)/LN-145 in combination with pembrolizumab. TIL as a single-therapy will be evaluated with LN-145 only.    

Phase: II
