Endocyte (Nasdaq:ECYT), a biopharmaceutical company developing targeted therapeutics for personalized cancer treatment, today announced in a late-breaking poster session the presentation of new research from Endocyte’s chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR T) adaptor molecule (CAM) platform at the AACR Annual Meeting 2018 in Chicago, IL.

As quoted in the press release:

“We are pleased to present data that support the utility of our unique CAR T platform, which potentially enables us to control cytokine release syndrome (CRS), manage T-cell exhaustion and address heterogeneity in both solid and liquid tumors through the administration of multiple CAMs,” said Chris Leamon, vice president, research and development of Endocyte. “These findings are critical towards identifying the dosing regimen and confirming the anti-tumor activity of EC17/CAR T, our folate-targeted CAM-based therapy, as we look to initiate a phase 1 trial in osteosarcoma later this year.”

Endocyte’s CAM-based therapies consist of a single universal autologous CAR T-cell, designed to bind with high affinity to FITC. This universal CAR T-cell can be specifically directed to cancer cells through the administration of a bi-specific adaptor molecule targeted to both FITC and a tumor target, which acts to bridge the universal CAR T-cell with the cancer cells. This allows for control of the antigen target through the administration of the CAM, in contrast to current CAR T-cell therapies, in which the antigen targets are not controlled.
