About Aurora BioPharma

Aurora is leading in the development of Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T therapy, Cancer Vaccines, and combinations with Checkpoint Inhibitors. AU105 is a "living-drug" CAR T agent that has shown safety and efficacy in pre-clinical and human clinical trials. A Phase 1 clinical trial was completed in 16 Glioblastoma patients, AU105 met its endpoints of safety, tumor killing efficacy, and showed promising signals of double the median historic overall survival. Aurora is planning a randomized multi-site Phase II trial of AU105 in Early Diagnosed Glioblastoma, and a Phase I/II trial in Recurrent Glioblastoma with intracranial injection. Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer in Children and Adolescents, even after radical amputation of a limb and chemotherapy, survival is poor.
