EDINBURGH, Scotland, May 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- TC BioPharm (Holdings) PLC ("TC BioPharm" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TCBP) a clinical stage biotechnology company developing platform allogeneic gamma-delta T cell therapies for cancer and other indications, today announced that the company's lead therapeutic TCB008 will be available to patients via a newly launched compassionate use program in the UK.

Compassionate use refers to the prescription of unlicensed medicinal products to treat a patient in instances where their individual clinical needs cannot be met with the available licensed treatments. Patients enrolling in these clinical trials must meet specific entry criteria, both to protect vulnerable patient populations and ensure the validity of study data. These data must be reviewed and approved by regulatory agencies before products can be marketed as licensed medicinal products for patient treatment.

Access to TCB's cell therapy products through the compassionate use program will provide medical practitioners with treatment options for patients who are ineligible to access experimental treatments through ongoing clinical trials.

"TCBP firmly believes in putting patients' needs first, not just extending life but providing a higher quality of life for patients who might otherwise have no other options for treatment. We are immensely appreciative of the support and effort from our physician investigators leading to expanded access to TCB008 to support the treatment of patients with clinical needs that cannot currently be met with licensed treatments," said Mr. Bryan Kobel, CEO of TC BioPharm. "In addition to helping patients, this step will increase our data set and knowledge around TCB-008 and inform a broader use case as a therapeutic in the future. Initiating this program is yet another leap forward for TCBP and another milestone achieved, and concurrently to our ongoing Phase 2b clinical trial, as we remain committed to advancing the availability and potential of cell therapies."
