Key takeaways include: 1) three partial responses (PRs) achieved by the NY- ESO TCR among four patients with myxoid/ round cell liposarcoma (MRCLS); 2) a slew of additional data readouts expected throughout 2018, including the first efficacy results from the MAGE-A10 and MAGE-A4 studies anticipated in 2H18; and 3) a cash runway through early 2020. With growing evidence from the NY-ESO TCR, multiple clinical data readouts expected from the wholly owned assets in 2018, a marquee partner like GlaxoSmithKline to move the NY-ESO program into pivotal studies, and a strong cash position of $188 million (pro forma), we continue to recommend shares of Adaptimmune to long-term, risk tolerant investors."
