Medigene AG has announced its pipeline expansion into neoantigens with KRAS as the first target in its MDG-10xx program, a T-cell receptor engineered T cell (TCR-T) therapy being developed in combination with the company's PD1-41BB switch receptor technology.
The targeted delivery of optimized stem cells directly into injured tissues has been used to maximize efficacy and minimize systemic exposure. Still, despite hundreds of clinical trials evaluating mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy as a treatment, clinical efficacy remains highly variable. Investigators at Case Western Reserve University have developed an optimized combination of cytokines and growth factors applied to MSCs (HXB-319).
Researchers from Healios K.K. presented preclinical data for HLCN-061, a novel gene-engineered human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived NK cell product being developed for the treatment of solid tumors.
