  2. WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mustang Bio, Inc. ("Mustang") (NASDAQ:MBIO), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on translating today's medical breakthroughs in cell and gene therapies into potential cures for hematologic cancers, solid tumors and rare genetic diseases, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") has granted Orphan Drug Designation to MB-107, Mustang's lentiviral gene therapy for the treatment of X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency ("XSCID"), also known as bubble boy disease, in newly diagnosed infants under the age of two.

    WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mustang Bio, Inc. ("Mustang") (NASDAQ:MBIO), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on translating today's medical breakthroughs in cell and gene therapies into potential cures for hematologic cancers, solid tumors and rare genetic diseases, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") has granted Orphan Drug Designation to MB-107, Mustang's lentiviral gene therapy for the treatment of X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency ("XSCID"), also known as bubble boy disease, in newly diagnosed infants under the age of two. The FDA previously granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation in August 2020 and Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy designation in August 2019 to MB-107 for the treatment of XSCID in newly diagnosed patients. Additionally, the European Medicines Agency granted Advanced Therapy Medicinal Product classification to MB-107 in April 2020.

    The FDA grants Orphan Drug Designation to drugs and biologics that are intended for the safe and effective treatment, diagnosis or prevention of rare diseases or disorders that affect fewer than 200,000 people in the U.S. Orphan Drug Designation provides certain incentives, such as tax credits toward the cost of clinical trials and prescription drug user fee waivers. If a product holding Orphan Drug Designation receives the first FDA approval for the disease in which it has such designation, the product is entitled to seven years of market exclusivity, which is independent from intellectual property protection.

    Manuel Litchman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Mustang, said, "Mustang has had a productive quarter on the regulatory front. We are very pleased to achieve another significant milestone and receive Orphan Drug Designation for MB-107 for the treatment of XSCID in newly diagnosed patients. This designation for MB-107, in addition to its Rare Pediatric Disease Designation, Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy designation and Advanced Therapy Medicinal Product classification, continues to enhance our regulatory pathway for a much-needed treatment option to address this devastating rare disease that affects children. We look forward to initiating our pivotal clinical programs for MB-107 in newly diagnosed infants with XSCID and MB-207 in previously transplanted patients with XSCID very soon."

    MB-107 is currently being assessed in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial for XSCID in newly diagnosed infants under the age of two at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital ("St. Jude"), UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in San Francisco and Seattle Children's Hospital. In May 2020, Mustang submitted an investigational new drug application ("IND") to the FDA to initiate a multi-center Phase 2 clinical trial of MB-107 in newly diagnosed infants with XSCID who are between two months to two years of age. The trial is expected to enroll 10 patients who, together with 15 patients enrolled in the current multi-center trial led by St. Jude, will be compared with 25 matched historical control patients who have undergone hematopoietic stem cell transplantation ("HSCT"). The primary efficacy endpoint will be event-free survival. The initiation of this trial is expected early in the fourth quarter of 2020. Mustang is targeting topline data from this trial in the second half of 2022.

    Another Phase 1/2 clinical trial for XSCID in patients over the age of two years, who have received prior HSCT, is underway at the National Institutes of Health, and Mustang expects to file an IND to the FDA to initiate a multi-center Phase 2 clinical trial in this population in the fourth quarter of 2020. This product candidate for XSCID in patients over the age of two years, who have received prior HSCT, is designated MB-207. The FDA granted a Rare Pediatric Disease Designation to MB-207 in August 2020.

    About X-linked Severe Combined Immunodeficiency ("XSCID")

    X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency is a rare genetic disorder that occurs in approximately 1 per 225,000 births. It is characterized by the absence or lack of function of key immune cells, resulting in a severely compromised immune system and death by one year of age if untreated. Patients with XSCID have no T-cells or natural killer cells. Although their B-cells are normal in number, they are not functional. As a result, XSCID patients are usually affected by severe bacterial, viral or fungal infections early in life and often present with interstitial lung disease, chronic diarrhea and failure to thrive.

    The specific genetic disorder that causes XSCID is a mutation in the gene coding for the common gamma chain ("γc"), a protein that is shared by the receptors for at least six interleukins. These interleukins and their receptors are critical for the development and differentiation of immune cells. The gene coding for γc is known as IL-2 receptor gamma, or IL2RG. Because IL2RG is located on the X-chromosome, XSCID is inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern, resulting in almost all patients being male.

    WORCESTER, Mass., Aug. 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mustang Bio, Inc. ("Mustang") (NASDAQ:MBIO), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on translating today's medical breakthroughs in cell and gene therapies into potential cures for hematologic cancers, solid tumors and rare genetic diseases, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") has granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation to MB-207, Mustang's lentiviral gene therapy for the treatment of patients with X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency ("XSCID"), also known as bubble boy disease, who were previously treated with a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation ("HSCT") and for whom re-treatment is indicated.

    The FDA grants Rare Pediatric Disease Designation for serious and life-threatening diseases that primarily affect children ages 18 years or younger and fewer than 200,000 people in the United States. If Mustang's Biologics License Application is approved, the company may be eligible to receive a priority review voucher, which can be redeemed to obtain priority review for any subsequent marketing application or may be sold or transferred. This program is intended to encourage development of new drugs and biologics for the prevention and treatment of rare pediatric diseases.

    Manuel Litchman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Mustang, said, "XSCID is a life-threatening and rare genetic disorder with limited treatment options. We are pleased with our ongoing progress with the FDA to advance potential treatments for this devastating disease, including the recent Rare Pediatric Disease Designation for MB-107 in newly diagnosed XSCID patients and now for MB-207 for patients with XSCID who have previously received HSCT and require re-treatment. We look forward to continuing to work efficiently to expedite the development of critically needed treatment options for children with XSCID."

    MB-207 is currently being assessed in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial for XSCID in patients over the age of two, who have received prior HSCT, at the National Institutes of Health. Mustang expects to file an investigational new drug application ("IND") with the FDA to initiate a multi-center Phase 2 clinical trial of MB-207 in this patient population in the fourth quarter of 2020.

As a result, XSCID patients are usually affected by severe bacterial, viral or fungal infections early in life and often present with interstitial lung disease, chronic diarrhea and failure to thrive.  Among patients who receive HSCT, many are unable to establish adequate T-cell immunity or lose T-cell immunity over time. Further, approximately two-thirds of patients who receive HSCT lack sufficient B-cell immunity and need lifelong immunoglobulin replacement therapy.

    The specific genetic disorder that causes XSCID is a mutation in the gene coding for the common gamma chain (γc), a protein that is shared by the receptors for at least six interleukins.
