Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati advised Arcellx on the deal.
Arcellx, a privately held clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, announced that it raised $115 million in a Series C financing to advance its pipeline of adaptive and controllable cell therapies. The proceeds will support the company’s development of CART-ddBCMA, a BCMA-specific CAR-modified T-cell therapy currently in Phase 1 and anticipated to begin a pivotal trial in 2022. In addition, the funding will support initiation of clinical trials evaluating ACLX-001 and ACLX-002, cell therapies derived from Arcellx’s uniquely controllable ARC-SparX platform, in multiple myeloma (MM) and acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), respectively.
The Wilson Sonsini team includes partner Dan Koeppen (Picture), and associates Meghan Burton and Amanda Creedon.
