Bioengineered Enucleated Stem Cells For Therapeutic Delivery
Sunday, May 15, 2022
9:15 AM – 9:40 AM
Co-founder and CSO, Richard Klemke, PhD. will present Cytonus’ innovative Cargocyte™ platform approach in addressing common challenges many biologic therapeutic agents have namely lack of therapeutic localization within diseased tissues due to inadequate drug-delivery. Dr. Klemke will present progress made on Cytonus’ lead Cargocyte product candidates as part of the “Coming of Age: Stem Cell Therapies- from Bench to Clinic” session.
Cargocyte products are derived from enucleated cell lines and are uniquely engineered with specific disease targeting molecules to safely transport therapeutic payloads intravenously and deep into difficult-to-reach target tissues. Cargocytes can deliver and actively produce the therapeutic agent of choice on-site in a controlled, predictable, and safe manner. The proprietary Cargocyte technology is a first-in-class therapeutic platform with numerous potential medical applications across unmet therapeutic areas. Cytonus is developing a broad and deep pipeline of bioengineered Cargocytes for targeted delivery of a wide range of therapeutic modalities including Protein, Peptides, RNAs, ASOs, small molecule drugs, viruses, and gene editing agents.
Cytonus is reinventing drug-discovery and drug-delivery by challenging the basic principles of pharmacokinetics (the fate of a therapeutic and how it is distributed) that has failed patients since the start of medicine. With a revolutionary platform technology called the Cargocyte, we believe the days of flooding the body with medicines to reach a desirable effect is an antiquated approach that has led to unacceptable drug failure rates (>90%). With a combination of precision drug delivery and in-vivo drug production the Cargocyte platform enables science and medicines to new level of effectiveness without compromising safety for patients. We are headquartered in Carlsbad, California. For additional information, visit cytonus.com, and follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
