CytoAgents has initiated recruitment in a Phase Ib/IIa clinical trial of CTO1681 to treat cytokine release syndrome (CRS) in lymphoma patients receiving CAR T-cell Therapy.

The study will be carried out at several US sites, with UPMC Hillman Cancer Center being the first site for enrolment.

It will assess the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of different doses of CTO1681.

The study’s first phase will be an open-label and dose escalation phase. Patients will be given CTO1681 10μg before receiving their CAR T-cell therapy.

They will continue to receive the drug three times daily for a total of 15 days.

Throughout the study, patients will provide blood samples at specified points and will undergo urine samples, ECGs, scans, and other medical evaluations.
