Intellia Therapeutics Inc. on Thursday said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has accepted its investigational new drug application for NTLA-5001 in acute myeloid leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

The Cambridge, Mass., clinical-stage genome-editing company said NTLA-5001 would be its first ex-vivo candidate using its proprietary cell-engineering process for the treatment of cancer to enter clinical studies.

Intellia said it plans to begin patient screening by the end of the year for a Phase 1/2a study evaluating NTLA-5001 in adults with persistent or recurrent acute myeloid leukemia who have previously received first-line therapy.
