Gamida Cell to Present Full Data from Phase 3 Study of Omidubicel at TCT, the Combined Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Meetings of ASTCT and CIBMTR

gbafNews28

Gamida Cell Ltd. (Nasdaq: GMDA), an advanced cell therapy company committed to cures for blood cancers and serious hematologic diseases, today announced that the full results of the Phase 3 clinical trial of omidubicel will be presented for the first time at the TCT Meetings, the Transplantation & Cellular Therapy Meetings of the American Society of Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (ASTCT) and Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR), which is being held virtually from February 8“12, 2021.

The international, multi-center, randomized Phase 3 study for omidubicel evaluated the safety and efficacy of omidubicel in patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing allogeneic bone marrow transplant compared to a comparator group of patients who received a standard umbilical cord blood transplant.

This will be the first presentation of the full efficacy and safety results of this study. Gamida Cell previously reported in 2020 top-line data for omidubicel, an advanced cell therapy under development as a potentially life-saving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant solution for patients with hematologic malignancies. Last May, Gamida Cell reported that the study achieved its primary endpoint, demonstrating a highly statistically significant reduction in time to neutrophil engraftment, a key milestone in a patients recovery from a bone marrow transplant. Last October, the company reported that the omidubicel phase 3 study achieved its secondary endpoints of platelet engraftment, infections, and hospitalizations.

Details about the presentation are as follows: Title: Improved Clinical Outcomes with Omidubicel Versus Standard Myeloablative Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation: Results of a Phase III Randomized, Multicenter Study Lead Author: Mitchell E. Horwitz, M.D. Time: Tuesday, February 9, 2021, 4:45-5:00 p.m. EST

About Omidubicel

Omidubicel is an advanced cell therapy under development as a potential life-saving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell (bone marrow) transplant solution for patients with hematologic malignancies (blood cancers). In both Phase 1/2 and Phase 3 clinical studies (NCT01816230, NCT02730299), omidubicel demonstrated rapid and durable time to engraftment and was generally well tolerated. The company expects to submit a full biologics licensing application to the U.S. FDA in the second half of 2021.Omidubicel is also being evaluated in a Phase 1/2 clinical study in patients with severe aplastic anemia (NCT03173937). The aplastic anemia investigational new drug application is currently filed with the FDA under the brand name CordIn, which is the same investigational development candidate as omidubicel. For more information on clinical trials of omidubicel, please visit www.clinicaltrials.gov.

Omidubicel is an investigational therapy, and its safety and efficacy have not been established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or any other health authority.

Early US success ignites drive to Latin America, Asia    

TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Planswell,  the Toronto-based startup delivering free financial plans in about three minutes at Planswell.com, is preparing for expansion to Latin America and Asia by filling key executive positions. C-suite hires join Chief Executive Officer Eric Arnold and Chief Operating Officer Scott Wetton to navigate rapid growth for the company.

Planswell entered the US market in October of 2020 with US revenue quickly surpassing business in Canada, the company's home base. To date, over 1000 advisors in North America have partnered with Planswell from virtually every major financial institution— in addition to solo, independent firms—to help consumers action their financial plans. Planswell has delivered over 300,000 free financial plans to households located in every US state and Canadian province.

In preparation for further expansion, Planswell adds Trevor Oseen of Calgary as Chief Financial Officer. Oseen has extensive experience building companies around the world after landing in his first CFO position of a public, internationally traded energy company at 29. He's since worked in eighty countries while finding time to complete  23 marathons and seven Ironman triathlons.

Jennifer Mastrud joins as Chief Marketing Officer after over twenty years of notable marketing leadership experience in diverse sectors ranging from globally syndicated TV to SaaS. She has an impressive track record of turning young startups into industry leaders, building scalable marketing systems, and managing remote teams. Most recently, Mastrud led two-sided national marketing efforts aimed at financial advisors and financial planning clients. Based in the US, Mastrud is a forty-year survivor of Minnesota winters.

Dean Khialani, a Florida-based technology visionary with a Ph.D. in Information Systems, joins as Chief Technology Officer. Specializing in big data, blockchain, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, Khialani has over 20 years of experience turning code into profitable products in C-level roles at startups and large, established corporations alike.

Scott P. Gill, a leading expert on the US financial regulatory environment,  joins as Chief Compliance Officer heading the development of Planswell's US planning engine. Gill brings guru-level knowledge of RIA compliance after advising hundreds of firms throughout fifteen years in the business. Based in North Carolina, Gill is currently completing a doctorate and operates a charitable organization he founded to serve the homeless.

The executive team leads remote staff dispersed across Canada, the United States, the Philippines, Serbia, Turkey, and Nigeria.

“I am so humbled,” said Eric Arnold, Planswell Chief Executive Officer, “This leadership team is much more experienced than me. I'm confident we'll succeed in Latin America and Asia by the end of this year.”
