Two presentations will highlight Actym’s novel IV administered, tumor-infiltrating therapies that express immuno-modulatory factors
BERKELEY, CA – Apr 02, 2019 – PRNewswire
Actym Therapeutics, a privately held biotechnology company focused on therapeutic targeting of intractable immune pathways in the tumor microenvironment, announced today that it will be presenting preclinical data at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgiaon April 3, 2019. The two presentations are entitled “STACT: A Novel Tumor-Targeting, Systemically-Administered Delivery Platform Capable of Targeting Intractable Pathways and Precise Immuno-Modulation of the Tumor Microenvironment” and “STACT-TREX1: A Systemically-Administered STING Pathway Agonist Targets Tumor-Resident Myeloid Cells and Induces Adaptive Anti-Tumor Immunity in Multiple Preclinical Models.”
“We look forward to sharing data demonstrating the broad potential and scientific basis of our therapeutic platform. The data will show that after intravenous administration, STACT is able to infiltrate and enrich in solid tumors. Upon consumption by tumor resident myeloid cells, STACT delivers a genetic payload-encoding plasmid, which allows for expression of heterologous proteins in a tumor-specific manner. This technology allows for the direct and persistent expression of a wide range of therapeutic immuno-modulatory factors in the tumor microenvironment that would otherwise be too toxic if systemically administered,” said Dr. Christopher Thanos, President and CEO of Actym Therapeutics.
Details of the presentations are as follows:
Title: STACT: A Novel Tumor-Targeting, Systemically-Administered Delivery Platform Capable of Targeting Intractable Pathways and Precise Immuno-Modulation of the Tumor Microenvironment
Title: STACT-TREX1: A Systemically-Administered STING Pathway Agonist Targets Tumor-Resident Myeloid Cells and Induces Adaptive Anti-Tumor Immunity in Multiple Preclinical Models
Location: Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia
