About Autolus Therapeutics plc

Autolus is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing next-generation, programmed T cell therapies for the treatment of cancer. Using a broad suite of proprietary and modular T cell programming technologies, the company is engineering precisely targeted, controlled and highly active T cell therapies that are designed to better recognize cancer cells, break down their defense mechanisms and eliminate these cells. Autolus has a pipeline of product candidates in development for the treatment of hematological malignancies and solid tumors. For more information please visit www.autolus.com.

About AUTO5

AUTO5 is a programmed T cell product candidate in pre-clinical development for T cell lymphoma, a setting where there are currently no approved programmed T cell therapies.  AUTO5 is specifically designed to target TRBC2 derived cancers, which account for approximately 60% of T cell lymphomas, and is a complement to the AUTO4 T cell product candidate currently in clinical development.

About AUTO6NG

AUTO6NG is a next generation programmed T cell product candidate in pre-clinical development.  AUTO6NG builds on preliminary proof of concept data from AUTO6, a CAR targeting GD2-expression cancer cell currently in clinical development for the treatment of Neuroblastoma. AUTO6NG incorporates additional cell programming modules to overcome immune suppressive defense mechanisms in the tumor microenvironment, in addition to endowing the CAR-T cells with extended persistence capacity. AUTO6NG is currently in preclinical development for the potential treatment of other GD2-expressing solid tumors than Neuroblastoma, including Osteosarcoma, Soft Tissue Sarcoma, Small Cell Lung Cancer, and Melanoma.

About AUTO7

AUTO7 is a next generation programmed T cell product candidate in pre-clinical development for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer. It encodes a CAR harboring a highly sensitive and stable binder to the prostate ligand PSMA. In addition, AUTO7 incorporates four novel cell programming modules:  a truncated SHP2 (dSHP2) protein to shield checkpoint inhibition; a dominant negative TGFβRII (dnTGFβRII) protein to protect from inhibition induced by TGFβ; a IL7 chimeric cytokine receptor (IL7_CCR) to support CAR T cell survival; and an engineered IL-12 (SS-IL12) module to activate immune cell response at the tumor site.
