SYDNEY, March 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — HaemaLogiX Ltd, a clinical stage biotech company developing novel immunotherapies for multiple myeloma, today announced that its anti-KMA CAR-T cell preclinical development has been completed and is the subject of an abstract accepted for poster presentation at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), held 14-19 April in Orange County.
HaemaLogiX’s CAR-T is being developed to target Kappa Myeloma Antigen (KMA) a myeloma-specific antigen not found on normal cells. The completed preclinical data demonstrates strong proof of concept to support the use of anti-KMA CAR-T cell therapy for the treatment of patients with myeloma.
The preclinical development of anti-KMA CAR-T forms part of a research collaboration project with the Centre of Excellence in Cellular Immunotherapy at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
The abstract is available here and the Poster will be made available by AACR and via the HaemaLogiX website shortly after presentation.
