Affini-T Therapeutics’ KRAS TCR T Cell Therapy Program to be Presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy

05.03.2022

BOSTON, Mass., and SEATTLE, Wash. – May 3, 2022 – Affini-T Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company unlocking the power of T cells against oncogenic driver mutations, today announced that data from its KRAS program will be presented in an oral presentation at the 25th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT). The data from Affini-T Therapeutics will be delivered by Tijana Martinov, Ph.D. from the Greenberg Lab at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.

“KRAS mutations are the most prevalent oncogenic drivers in solid tumor cancers with G12V and G12D variants representing the most common substitutions within this oncogene,” said Loïc Vincent, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, Affini-T Therapeutics. “We are excited that our TCR-engineered T cell therapies, designed to orchestrate a coordinated CD4 and CD8 T cell response while targeting these common mutant variants of KRAS, show promising preclinical safety and efficacy profiles that support clinical development for solid tumor patients with KRAS mutations who have high unmet medical needs.”

Presentation details are as follows:

Title: Preclinical Development of Safe and Effective T Cell Receptors Specific for Mutant KRAS G12V and G12D Peptides
Presenting Author: Tijana Martinov, Ph.D.
Abstract Number: 103
Session Title: Cell-Based Cancer Immunotherapies I
Date & Time: Monday, May 16, 2022 at 4:45pm – 5:00pm ET
