IN8bio entered the clinic in 2020 with two Phase 1 clinical trials which are currently enrolling patients. In February 2020, IN8bio initiated enrollment in a Phase 1 clinical trial of gamma-delta T cell immunotherapy in leukemia patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. It is the first clinical trial of an expanded and activated allogeneic gamma-delta T cell immunotherapy and is being conducted with IN8bio’s partners at the University of Kansas Cancer Center. Additionally, in February 2020, IN8bio initiated enrollment in a Phase 1 clinical trial of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma, which is a difficult to treat brain tumor that progresses rapidly. This trial is being conducted at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. IN8bio’s proprietary Drug Resistant Immunotherapy, which is being used in the glioblastoma trial, is the first genetically engineered gamma-delta T cell therapy to be administered to patients.
