GT Biopharma (NASDAQ: GTBP), a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company focused on developing innovative therapeutics based on the company’s proprietary natural killer (“NK”) cell engager, TriKE(TM) protein biologic technology platform, has released fourth-quarter and year-end financial and company results for the period ended Dec. 31, 2020. Company highlights noted in the announcement included entering into a GMP manufacturing partnership with Cytovance; the initiation of manufacturing of additional solid tumor TriKE for lung, breast, ovarian and gastrointestinal cancer programs in preparation for FDA clinical trials; and enhancing and expanding the company’s board of directors. In addition, the company completed a successful listing on NASDAQ and closed on a $28.7 million public offering, which resulted in GT Biopharma having more than $30 million in the bank. “2020 was a year of robust clinical progress and milestone achievements for GT Biopharma, which allowed us to accomplish a major corporate milestone in listing GT Biopharma on NASDAQ at the beginning of 2021,” said GT Biopharma chair and CEO Anthony J. Cataldo in the press release. “The emerging data from our GTB-3550 TriKE program in hematological malignancies, MDS and AML, are encouraging in both safety and efficacy profiles. The ongoing data profile has demonstrated significant differences from all other NK cell therapies and NK engager companies, making TriKE a monotherapy, off-the-shelf platform therapeutic. TriKE exerts its therapeutic effect without the need for outside assistance in the form of combination therapies or the addition of supplemental progenitor-derived or autologous/allogenic NK cells. As a result, TriKE therapy cost to patients will be far superior, significantly more economic than progenitor-derived or autologous/allogenic NK cell therapy companies’ offerings. Additionally, the results generated from the GTB-3550 TriKE clinical trial reinforces its versatility, providing a clear rationale to proceed with additional programs in solid tumor and hematologic cancers.”
