Clinical-stage immunotherapy company developing T-cell therapies for patients suffering from cancer. The company’s lead TRuC-T cell product, TC-210, targets solid tumors

TC-210 is being studied in Phase 1/2 trials for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), ovarian cancer, malignant pleural/peritoneal mesothelioma, and cholangiocarcinoma

TCR2 Therapeutics is developing a broad line of T-cell Candidates for Solid and Hematologic Cancers

The company has no current revenue or cash-flow and no licensed products

Loss of $1.32 per share in the six months to 30 Jun 2020. Lost $3.91 per share in the same period of 2019

Has research partnerships with Massachusetts General Hospital, the University of Pittsburgh, Freiburg University, and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Bottom Line:

  • TCRR is up +91% in six months and is a darling of institutional investors despite being early in product development
  • The company development of T-cell therapies for cancer patients is encouraging. I have had melanoma and squamous cell skin cancers, so this is of personal interest
