Calidi Biotherapeutics Announces Upcoming Presentations at the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting

Calidi Biotherapeutics Inc. (NYSE American: CLDI) (“Calidi”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing a new generation of targeted immunotherapies, today announced the acceptance of three abstracts that will be presented in a poster session at the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, taking place from May 31-June 4, 2024, in Chicago, Illinois.

The posters will include an update from a City of Hope-led Phase 1 study of Calidi's CLD-101 program, focusing on the treatment of recurrent high-grade glioma, now advancing into its fourth cohort of participants. CLD-101 is a cutting-edge therapeutic candidate in Calidi’s NeuroNova program, comprising tumor-tropic neural stem cells (NSCs) that deliver an oncolytic adenovirus – CRAd-S-pk7 – selectively to tumor sites.

Calidi will also present preclinical data highlighting its RTNova delivery platform, a novel systemic enveloped oncolytic virotherapy program designed to target all tumor sites, and its CLD-201 program, which is expected to dose its first patient in a Phase 1 trial in the second half of 2024 subject to Calidi’s ability to raise additional capital.

Details on the posters and corresponding abstracts are shown below.
