BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gamida Cell Ltd. (Nasdaq: GMDA), the leader in the development of NAM-enabled cell therapies for patients with hematologic and solid cancers and other serious diseases, today announced the presentation of new long term follow-up data and health-related quality of life scores of patients treated with omidubicel at the Tenth Annual Meeting of the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO), being held in Houston, Texas.
“These data reinforce our commitment to advance transformational cell therapy research and underscore the potential of our NAM technology platform. Our lead stem cell therapy candidate, omidubicel, addresses the unmet need for patients with hematologic malignancies, demonstrated by the robust and growing body of encouraging clinical evidence, including the long-term follow up data and quality of life improvement,” said Ronit Simantov, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Gamida Cell. “As we approach the PDUFA date of January 30, 2023, and upon potential FDA approval, we are prepared to execute our plan that ensures access to those patients who can benefit from omidubicel as quickly as possible.”
The long-term, durable clinical benefit of omidubicel was observed at three years across a patient population that typically has a poor prognosis. A study titled, “Multicenter Long-Term Follow Up of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation with Omidubicel: A Pooled Analysis of Five Prospective Clinical Trials,” highlighted long-term follow-up of 105 patients transplanted with omidubicel between 2006-2020 (median follow-up of 22 months). The data demonstrated an overall survival and disease-free survival of 63% (95% CI, 53%-73%) and 56% (95% CI, 47%-67%) at three years, respectively, as well as durable long-term hematopoiesis and immune competence.

Overall well-being health-related quality of life scores for patients treated with omidubicel demonstrated clinical benefit compared to standard of care. A study titled, “Health-Related Quality of Life Following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation with Omidubicel Versus Standard Umbilical Cord Blood” featured an analysis of 108 patients that completed validated health-related quality of life (HRQL) surveys on screening and days 42, 100, 180, and 365 post-transplant. Measures of physical and functional well-being and other HRQL scores were more favorable with omidubicel. These data suggest clinically meaningful and sustained improvements in physical, functional, and overall well-being compared to umbilical cord blood transplantation.
