Prescient Therapeutics Licenses Technologies from University of Pennsylvania and Oxford University to Create Innovative Universal CAR Platform
Prescient Therapeutics (ASX: PTX) is pleased to announce that it has obtained global, exclusive licence from University of Pennsylvania (“Penn”) for an innovative universal immune receptor platform for the development of innovative cell therapies…
CAR-T is a cell therapy which works by genetically modifying a patient’s own T-cells by adding a new receptor (CAR) to recognise cancer antigens. CAR-T therapy has achieved stunning success in certain blood cancers. However, conventional CAR-T also faces considerable challenges that limit their broader use, including manufacturing, safety and adaptability. The OmniCAR platform seeks to overcome these challenges. OmniCAR is a modular, universal CAR platform using technology exclusively from CAR-T pioneer the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn), as well as Oxford University. It has the potential to dramatically enhance the safety and efficacy of any CAR-T therapy, enabling in-house development of next-generation CAR-T therapies, and by dramatically improving external CAR-T programs it will create opportunities for collaboration and business development in the CAR-T field.

PTX - 200
