Adrian Rawcliffe, Adaptimmune’s CEO stated,
Their SPEAR T-cells are unquestionably effective against a variety of MAGE-A4-expressing tumors. Their priority now is to transform them into FDA-approved treatments. This starts with the continuing SURPASS trial for persons with lung, bladder, gastroesophageal, head and neck, and now ovarian cancer, and continues with the newly launched SURPASS 2 trial for esophageal and EGJ malignancies. These findings help them narrow down which additional indications they should pursue in late-stage development and also confirm their competence and efficacy in developing and improving cell therapies.

After seeing positive results with afami-cel, this next-generation cell therapy appears to be safe and has proven anticancer effectiveness in a large number of patients with a variety of cancers.
