We are hard at work developing personalized T cell therapies for people living with cancer. Explore our latest news and updates.
PACT Pharma, Inc., a privately held biopharmaceutical company developing transformational personalized neoantigen-specific and off-the-shelf T cell receptor (TCR)-T cell therapies for the eradication of solid tumors, today reported data from the first clinical study using CRISPR gene editing technology to substitute a gene in patients’ immune cells to treat cancer. Results from the study, which was conducted with collaborators at nine academic centers using PACT’s proprietary platforms, demonstrated early proof-of-concept that a patient’s immune system can be reprogrammed to recognize their own cancer. The study findings were the focus of a late breaking oral presentation at the 37th Annual Meeting of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC 2022), as well as a peer-reviewed paper in Nature that was published in conjunction with SITC 2022.
