What happened lately… 

NantKwest, Inc. (NASDAQ: NK), a leading company in cellular medicines, and ImmunityBio, Inc., which is a privately held immunotherapy company revealed that the median survival rates for patients with advanced metastatic pancreatic cancer which is currently untreated have more than doubled compared to historical survival rates.

PD L1 t-haNK protocol data from NantKwest, Inc. (NASDAQ: NK) shows median survival rates more than doubled those of patients with advanced metastatic pancreatic cancer for which no FDA-approved treatment exists. These trials, derived from the original Cancer Moonshot hypothesis and the exploratory QUILT trials in 2017, suggest that survival rates can be improved by orchestrating natural killer and T-cell therapy without high-dose chemotherapy.

Early Cancer Moonshot trials combined cell therapy and immunotherapy from several companies, including ImmunityBio, NantKwest, Celgene, and Pfizer. The problem explored the hypothesis that cancer cells could be eradicated by activating the patient’s immune system rather than high-dose chemotherapy. In multiple QUILT clinical trials investigating the combination of cell therapy, immunostimulating antibodies, adenovirus-based cancer vaccines, and low-dose chemotherapy between 2017 and 2020, preliminary results have proved the median survival rate for patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer can increase threefold. Based on data from these trials, ImmunityBio is conducting a three-cohort pivotal trial (QUILT 88) in metastatic pancreatic cancer.
