DENVER, Colo., May 20, 2024 (247marketnews.com) – NKGen Biotech, Inc. (Nasdaq:NKGN) reported that its Safety Review Committee cleared the Company’s cryopreserved autologous, expanded and enhanced SNK01 to progress into Phase 2 clinical development and expects to enroll the first patient for Phase 2 expected this quarter.

“We are excited to announce another important clinical milestone in our mission to advance SNK01 as the first potential disease modifying treatment of its kind for patients with more advanced Alzheimer’s disease,” commented NKGen’s Chairman and CEO, Paul Y. Song, MD. “The Phase 2 trial will utilize our cryopreserved SNK01 product given at the highest dose we have ever delivered, and for a full year duration. To date, SNK01 has been found to be well-tolerated with no reported drug-related adverse events. We are also very encouraged with the clinical progress we have made to date in moderate Alzheimer’s disease research and look forward to generating additional significant clinical and biomarker data from our randomized placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial.”

“I am encouraged by the continued promise of NKGen’s SNK01 NK cell therapy in a difficult to treat disease such as Alzheimer’s,” stated Dr. Jesse Carr, MD, Medical Director of Behavioral Research Specialists, LLC in Glendale, CA who is independently overseeing the trial site. “We are seeing remarkable preliminary clinical benefit in all patients without treatment-related adverse events, including apparent improvements in cognitive function, increases in daily living activities and overall quality of life. I look forward to the potential that this novel drug candidate holds as we continue to progress the trial.”
