P-BCMA-101 is an autologous, principally Tscm, CAR-T cell product (also called called a CARTyrin T cell product) targeting the myeloma selective protein BCMA. P-BCMA-101 cells are produced using a non-viral vector carrying the gene for an anti-BCMA Centyrin-based (small, fully human binding domain, designed to increase T cell persistence and decrease exhaustion) chimeric antigen receptor (CAR). Secondary to the large carrying capacity of the non-viral vector, P-BCMA-101 cells carry two additional genes, a selection gene used to manufacture a purified product and a "safety switch" gene to allow the cells to be eliminated if desired.

According to results presented at the 2018 ASH Annual Meeting, 23 patients received treatment with P-BCMA-101 in 1 of 5 dose cohorts and no dose-limiting toxicities were observed at any dose.
All 3 patients who received P-BCMA at a mean dose of 857 x 106 achieved a response, with 2 achieving a very good partial response. The third patient achieved a partial response and minimal residual disease negativity. Seven patients received a mean dose of 456 x 106 and the objective response rate was 43% in these patients. In the 7 patients who received a mean dose of 152 x 106, the objective response rate was 71%. A minor response or better was seen in 13 of 19 evaluable patients by IMWG criteria.
