On April 2, 2019, we presented initial safety data from two patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), liver cancer, from the first dose cohort of the ADP-A2AFP clinical trial at the annual AACR meeting. We did not observe clinically significant liver toxicity in the two patients treated at a dose of 100 million transduced cells, and these data supported dose escalation to the second cohort. Even though data are preliminary, we are encouraged by the evidence of tumor necrosis we saw in one of the two patients.
