Phio Presents Data on INTASYL as an Alternative to Genetic Modification to Improve Cell-based Immunotherapy at ASGCT 2020
Data from the poster details how INTASYL compares favorably to other technologies for improving cells used in adoptive cell therapy (ACT) for the treatment of solid tumors, especially in cases where permanent gene modification is not required or is undesirable. The poster will be presented by Dr.
"We have shown that our INTASYL technology is able to reprogram immune cells, such as T cells or NK cells, and thereby significantly improve their cell killing activity. Alternative approaches to enhancing ACT for solid tumors, such as genetic modification with CRISPR / Cas9, have their merit but also are confronted by significant shortcomings. These data presented today, and also impressive new animal data scheduled to be presented at the upcoming AACR and ASCO meetings in the coming weeks, show that the INTASYL platform has great promise for the improvement of ACT therapies without the need for gene editing."
