HIV Program Milestones

August 2020

FDA approves AGT’s Investigational New Drug (IND) application, greenlighting Phase 1 clinical trials for AGT103-T. The Phase 1 will be conducted in selected trial sites in the Baltimore/D.C. metropolitan area.

November 2020

The first trial participant was enrolled in the study and underwent leukapheresis, a procedure for obtaining concentrated white blood cells. Those cells will be used to manufacture the AGT103-T cell product.

May 2021

First Participant Infused with AGT103-T

Manufacturing AGT103-T from the participant's blood takes 11 days, and from there, FDA-mandated safety testing begins. The blood product met the release criteria and the trial participant was infused in May 2021.
