China: CAR-T

China:  CAR-T

In April of 2016, Immune Therapeutics, Inc. entered into a binding letter of intent with Super T-Cell Cancer Company, a newly formed Chinese corporation, for the acquisition of Chinese Chimeric Super Antigen Receptor T cell (CAR-T) cocktail therapy, Immuno-Oncology patents (pending), manufacturing technology, and clinical data.

The CAR-T cell therapy involves engineering cancer patients’ own immune cells to recognize and attack cancer tumors. CAR-T therapy has great potential to improve patient-specific cancer therapy in a profound way. Numerous studies have implicated regulatory T cells as key mediators in the creation of an immunosuppressed microenvironment that enables tumors to escape attack by the host immune system. The Super CAR-T Cocktail therapy has shown promise in early human clinical trials for the treatment of blood cancer, renal, cervical and hepatic cancer.
