Exacis Biotherapeutics Develops mRNA-Engineered iPSC-Derived NK Cells For Difficult-To-Treat Tumors

Excerpt from the Press Release:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Exacis Biotherapeutics Inc., a development-stage immuno-oncology company working to democratize access to the most advanced and effective cancer treatments, today announced several important steps in the preclinical development of its ExaNK™ engineered NK cell-therapy candidates.

ExaNK™ cells are generated from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) that are made using mRNA-based cell-reprogramming and gene-editing technologies. ExaNK™ cells are designed to resist rejection when administered to patients, with the goal of reducing or eliminating the need for costly and dangerous lymphodepletion, a procedure normally performed using cytotoxic chemotherapy, which carries risks of neurotoxicity and infection. These engineered iPSCs will form the basis for Exacis’ tumor-targeted ExaCAR-NK™ cells as well as non-CAR-bearing ExaNK™ cells designed to improve the effect of monoclonal antibodies against both liquid and solid tumors.
