Published: Thursday, Feb 16, 2017



Hans Hammers, MD, PhD, associate professor, Internal Medicine, UT Southwestern Medical Center, discusses HyperAcute Renal (HAR) immunotherapy in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

In a phase I study of alpha-1, 3-galactosyltransferase-expressing allogeneic RCC immunotherapy, patients with metastatic RCC were given injections of HAR for 4 weeks (150 x106 cells/300 x106 cells intradermally). This was followed by 10 weeks of bi-weekly injections.

HAR was well tolerated in this population, says Hammers, and RCC was deemed an appropriate tumor type to target with combination immunotherapy.
