Title: Preclinical potency assessment of SynKIR-110, a mesothelin-specific KIR-CAR T cell therapy for mesotheliomaAbstract Number: 321Date and time: Friday, November 3: 12:00-1:30 p.m. and 5:10-6:40 p.m.Authors: Drs. Jun Xu, PhD
About the KIR-CAR Platform The KIR-CAR platform is a dual-chain CAR T cell therapy and has been shown in preclinical animal models to be able to maintain antitumor T cell activity even in difficult solid tumor environments. DAP12 acts as a novel T cell costimulatory molecule that utilizes additional T cell stimulation pathways, further maintaining chimeric receptor expression and improving functional persistence of KIR-CAR T cells. This continued T cell function and persistence may lead to continued regression of solid tumors in preclinical models, including those resistant to traditional CAR T cell therapies. The KIR-CAR platform is being investigated in combination with other emerging technologies.
About Verismo TherapeuticsVerismo Therapeutics is a pioneer in dual-chain KIR-CAR technology, and its lead asset, SynKIR™-110, is in its first-in-human clinical trial. Verismo is the only company developing the KIR-CAR platform, a modified NK-like receptor designed to improve persistence and efficacy against aggressive solid tumors. The KIR-CAR platform technology was developed specifically for advanced solid tumors, an area of high unmet medical need. For more information, visit: www.verismotherapeutics.com
