Celyad (Euronext Brussels and Paris, and NASDAQ: CYAD), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of CAR-T cell therapies, today provides an update on its recent operations and reported consolidated financial results for the twelve-month period ended 31 December 2017, prepared in accordance with IFRS.
Christian Homsy, CEO of Celyad:
“2017 has been another milestone year for Celyad. The responses obtained to date in AML, and in solid tumors, we believe validate NKG2D as a target and allow us to move rapidly forward with the development of this product candidate in 2018. Our intellectual property related to the allogeneic technology, another of our core strengths, has been further strengthened: it was upheld by the US Patent and Trademark Office as part of multiple ex-parte re-examination requests and its importance has been recognized through our licensing agreement with Novartis. As far as 2018 is concerned: we believe it will be an exciting year as we expect to – among other things– complete the dose escalation segment of THINK and explore the various conditions that could lead to a potential registrational Phase 2 trial.”
