Unum Therapeutics reports Q2 EPS (34c), consensus (40c)
Reports Q2 revenue $3.14M, consensus $3.2M."During the quarter, we advanced our preclinical and clinical pipeline programs that are designed to improve the targeting and functionality of T cells to expand their use in hematologic and solid tumor cancers," said Chuck Wilson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Unum. "Today, we reported preliminary results from Cohort 3 of the Phase 1 trial with ACTR707 in patients with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We are very encouraged by the results from this trial that support our progress towards developing a competitive program with complete responses achieved in five of the 14 patients treated and no reported adverse events of cytokine release syndrome or severe neurotoxicity. Patient enrollment in Cohort 4 is now complete and we anticipate providing results from this cohort later this year. Our ACTR and BOXR platform initiatives in solid tumors also continued during the quarter, with Phase 1 trial enrollment activities progressing on our ACTR707 program in patients with HER2+ solid tumors. Our BOXR platform is designed to improve the functionality of engineered T cells by incorporating a "bolt-on" transgene to overcome resistance of the solid tumor microenvironment to T cell attack, and we are pleased to advance our first candidate from this platform, BOXR1030, towards clinical trials."
