On January 2, 2020, Gamida Cell Ltd. (the “Company”) issued a press release, a copy of which is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 6-K, announcing the completion of patient enrollment in the Company’s ongoing Phase 3 clinical study of omidubicel. Omidubicel, the Company’s lead clinical program, is an advanced cell therapy under development as a potential life-saving bone marrow transplant solution for patients with hematologic malignancies.

The international, multi-center, randomized Phase 3 study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of omidubicel compared to standard umbilical cord blood in patients with high-risk hematologic malignancies who need a bone marrow transplant and do not have an available matched donor. The primary endpoint is time to neutrophil engraftment. The study includes approximately 120 patients aged 12-65 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome or lymphoma. The study is taking place at over 50 clinical centers in the U.S., Latin America, Europe and Asia. Topline data from the study are expected in the first half of 2020. 

This report on Form 6-K is hereby incorporated by reference into the Company’s Registration Statement on Form F-3 (File No. 333-234701).
