Aurora is leading in the development of Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T therapy in solid tumors. AU105 is a “living-drug” CAR T agent that has shown safety and efficacy in pre-clinical and human clinical trials. A Phase 1 trial was completed in 16 Glioblastoma patients, AU105 met its endpoints of safety, tumor killing efficacy, and showed promising signals of increased overall survival. Aurora is planning a randomized multi-site Phase II trial of AU105 in Early Diagnosed Glioblastoma, and a Phase I/II trial in Recurrent Glioblastoma with intracranial injection. Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer in Children and Adolescents, even after radical amputation of a limb and chemotherapy, survival is poor. A Phase 1 trial in 19 Sarcoma patients was completed, AU-105 met its endpoints of safety, with strong signs of tumor killing efficacy. Aurora is planning a Phase II trial of its CAR T Cell therapy AU105 in Osteosarcoma.
