The abstract will be available for viewing on November 7 at 8:00 am EST at the Journal for Immunotherapy of Cancer (JITC) website (JITC link to be provided on the SITC Annual Meeting website at https://www.sitcancer.org/2022/home). The poster will also be available for viewing on November 10 at 9:00 am EST at https://www.sitcancer.org/2022/home.

The poster will present data on the universal use of an ADCC-enhancer NK cell, AB-101, in combination with ADCC-mechanistic therapeutic antibodies and will describe a broader set of antibody combinations beyond rituximab. Artiva is conducting a Phase 1/2 clinical trial (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04673617) to assess the safety and clinical activity of AB-101 alone and in combination with the anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody, rituximab, in patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell-non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) who have progressed beyond two or more prior lines of therapy.
