Immix Biopharma, Inc. (ImmixBio) (Nasdaq: IMMX) is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering personalized therapies for oncology and immunology with more than 100 patients treated to-date. Our lead cell therapy asset is the CAR-T NXC-201 for relapsed/refractory AL Amyloidosis and relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, for which we have observed overall response rates of 100% and 95%, respectively, in the ongoing Phase 1b/2a NEXICART-1 (NCT04720313) clinical trial (December 10, 2023). NXC-201 has the potential to be the world’s first “Single-Day CRS” CAR-T (median onset day 1, median duration 1 day, range 1-4 days), enabling the potential for a faster return home for patients and supporting potential expansion into autoimmune indications. NXC-201 has been awarded Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) by the FDA in both AL Amyloidosis and multiple myeloma. Our second program, a tissue specific therapeutic (TSTx) asset IMX-110, is being evaluated in Phase 1b/2a clinical trials as a monotherapy and IMMINENT-01 combination clinical trial with BeiGene’s anti-PD-1 antibody tislelizumab in relapsed/refractory solid tumors. IMX-110 has been awarded Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) and Rare Pediatric Disease Designation (RPDD) by the FDA. Learn more at
