Leading the Next Advances in Cell Therapy
Adicet is a clinical stage biotechnology company discovering and developing a leading-edge type of cancer treatments called cell therapies.
Cell therapy involves the transfer of intact, live bioengineered cells into a patient to treat or cure a disease. The cells may originate from the patient (autologous) or from a donor (allogeneic).
Adicet selected the gamma delta T cell because it has multiple ways to target and kill cancer cells. We also chose to use cells from donors (allogeneic) to enable our potential therapies to be readily available when needed (taken “off-the-shelf” or available to the patient on demand).
Adicet is discovering and developing allogeneic chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) and adaptor (CAd) gamma delta T cell therapies engineered to enhance selective tumor targeting, facilitate innate and adaptive anti-tumor immune response, and improve persistence for durable activity in patients.
Distinct among immune cell populations, we believe allogeneic, off-the-shelf, gamma delta T cells may have the following combination of attributes:
- Actively cytotoxic to tumor cells;
- Express both T cell and natural killer (NK) cell receptors, facilitating both adaptive and innate anti-tumor immune responses; this may help address treating tumors that are heterogeneic (diverse);
- Can replicate in an appropriate and measured way; reactivity to tumor cells is enhanced by engineering of the cell;
- May functionally persist in patients for clinically meaningful periods of time;
- Have distinct advantage in solid tumors, as gamma delta 1 T cells primarily reside and function in tissues;
- Can be used “off-the-shelf” and potentially manufactured in large numbers to facilitate consistent treatment of many patients, avoiding the cumbersome nature and expense of isolating cells from each patient.
Our Robust Pipeline:
Our lead product candidate, ADI-001, a first-in-class allogeneic gamma delta T cell therapy expressing a CAR targeting CD20, is in an ongoing Phase 1 study for the treatment of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). In addition to showing a favorable safety and tolerability profile, initial clinical studies of ADI-001 have shown promise in providing both complete responses and durability of response.
In addition, our pipeline has six additional internal gamma delta T cell therapy programs in discovery and preclinical development for both hematological malignancies and solid tumors, and we anticipate a new IND every 12-18 months.
We’re not the only ones excited about this. Here’s what others are saying about the promise of Adicet, our science and our teams…
