The FDA has granted LN-144, an adoptive cell therapy that uses tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) technology developed by Iovance Biotherapeutics, a fast track designation for the treatment of patients with advanced melanoma.

“Leveraging our experience in TIL generation from solid tumors to blood-born cancers is a natural extension of our learnings to date. We are exploring potential collaborations with lymphoma experts to supplement our research efforts. The data to be presented at ESMO is indicative of our efforts in becoming a leader in TIL treatment for a variety of tumor types,” added Fardis.
