Phase 1 / 2 Trial of Gavo-cel (TC-210) in Patients With Advanced Mesothelin-Expressing Cancer

Trial Status: Active

Gavocabtagene autoleucel (gavo-cel; TC-210) is a novel cell therapy that consists of autologous genetically engineered T cells expressing a single-domain antibody that recognizes human Mesothelin, fused to the CD3-epsilon subunit which, upon expression, is incorporated into the endogenous T cell receptor (TCR) complex. This Phase 1 / 2 study aims to establish the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) and subsequently determine an overall response rate in patients with advanced mesothelin-expressing cancers.
