Aurora is a biotechnology company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts commercializing cutting-edge cancer immunotherapy in FDA human clinical trials. The Company has completed two Phase 1 trials in genetically reprogrammed CAR T cell therapy in solid tumor, Glioblastoma and Sarcoma. The National Cancer Institute estimates about 25,000 people are diagnosed annually with Glioblastoma brain cancer. Most notably, that included Vice President Joe Biden's son, Beau Biden, and Senator Ted Kennedy. A Phase 1 trial in Glioblastoma with Aurora's CAR T agent AU-105 met its endpoints of safety and anti-Tumor Efficacy, in addition to achieving a very promising signal of double median overall survival. Aurora is planning a randomized multi-site Phase II trial its CAR T Cell therapy AU105 in Early Diagnosed Glioblastoma, and a Phase I/II trial of Recurrent Glioblastoma with the world's first CAR T cell therapy delivered via 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 Sarcoma and Osteosarcoma with Aurora's CAR T agent 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. The Company also has an equity interest in MedVax Technologies, Inc., its p53 DC cancer vaccine MX-225 has completed two FDA Phase II clinical trials, in Small Cell Lung Cancer, and the company is planning a combination trial with a PD-1 antibody in lung cancer with a major pharmaceutical company; and MX-225 is also in a Phase II combination trial in breast cancer with Indoximod, an IDO inhibitor from NewLink Genetics.
