TxCell SA (FR0010127662 – TXCL), a developer of cellular immunotherapies based on regulatory T cells (Tregs) for inflammation, autoimmunity and transplantation, today reports its revenues for the third quarter of 2017 and its cash position as of September 30, 2017.

Cash position and revenues as of September 30, 2017

As of September 30, 2017, TxCell’s cash and cash equivalents amounted to €7.0 million1, including €1.0 million for the partial pre-funding of TxCell’s 2017 research tax credit.

The proceeds from the potential exercise of all the warrants which were attached to new shares issued as part of the February 2017 capital increase would enable TxCell to finance its activities through to the IND approval to initiate a first-in-man study with a CAR-Treg candidate. This is expected by the end of 2018. TxCell is also looking at alternative financing options should these warrants not be fully exercised at maturity. The Company expects to communicate shortly regarding these options.

As expected, TxCell did not generate revenues during the third quarter of 2017. TxCell confirms its operating cash burn guidance for the full year 2017 of up to €13 million.

Recent progress with TxCell’s CAR-Treg platform

In September 2017, TxCell and its academic partner, UBC, presented new preclinical proof-ofconcept data as part of their CAR-Treg program targeting the prevention of chronic rejection after organ transplantation2. Additional Treg and CAR-Treg related data were also presented in several international conferences in September and October 20173,4,5,6.

Ongoing in vitro and in vivo studies conducted by TxCell are showing promising preliminary results in relevant models of autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis, confirming TxCell’s CAR-Treg platform strategy. In the next few months, TxCell will present new proof-of-concept data in clinically relevant mouse models with several candidates at appropriate scientific conferences and/or in peer-reviewed journals.

About TxCell –

TxCell is a biotechnology company that develops platforms for innovative, personalized T cell immunotherapies for the treatment of severe inflammatory and autoimmune diseases with high unmet medical need. TxCell is targeting transplant rejection as well as a range of autoimmune diseases (both T-cell and B-cell-mediated), including multiple sclerosis, lupus nephritis and bullous pemphigoid.

TxCell’s cellular immunotherapies are based on regulatory T lymphocytes (Tregs). Tregs are a T cell population discovered in the nineties for which anti-inflammatory properties have been demonstrated. Contrary to conventional approaches based on non-specific polyclonal Tregs, TxCell is exclusively developing engineered antigen-specific Tregs, where the antigen specificity is brought by a Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) (CAR-Treg cells).

Based in Sophia-Antipolis, France, TxCell is listed on Euronext Paris and currently has 46 employees.
