OLIGONUCLEOTIDE DELIVERY – Dectin-1 Receptor-Mediated Delivery of Oligonucleotide Drugs Complexed With Schizophyllan Dendritic Cells & Macrophages
Kenji Arima, PhD, and Akihiko Watanabe, PhD, introduce NapaJen Pharma’s technology with a specific focus on solving some of the current challenges of oligonucleotide therapeutics.
Cheryl L. Barton, PhD, and Bianca Piachaud-Moustakis, PhD, believe the role of TIL therapy as an anticancer therapy in melanoma and possibly other solid tumors holds great promise and could become a viable course of treatment in the future.
For each participating company, this section presents a detailed summary highlighting their core technologies, capabilities, technologies, and services.
Daniel de Boer, Chief Executive Officer of ProQR, discusses the use of RNA technology to directly target the underlying cause of genetic diseases.
Daniel J. O’Connor believes a trigger mechanism that can turn cold tumors hot can help researchers set their focus on delivering potentially life-saving drugs directly to core of a cancerous tumor.
Fabrice Navarro, PhD, summarizes recent disappointing clinical trial results for HIV vaccines and reports on CEA-Leti’s new approach based on engineered lipid nanoparticles that deliver p24 (a viral protein that optimizes the CpG adjuvant’s effect) with pinpoint accuracy.
Bob Ward, Chairman and CEO at Eloxx Pharmaceuticals, discusses nonsense mutations and how his company’s goal is to bring safe and effective therapies to children and adults suffering from genetic diseases as quickly as possible.
DRUG DELIVERY – ENHANZE (®): An Efficient Way to Optimize Biologic Therapies for Subcutaneous Administration
Michael J. LaBarre, PhD, discusses how the ENHANZE drug delivery technology has the potential to improve the pharmacokinetic profiles of co-administered drugs through increased dispersion, absorption, and bioavailability.
Laurie L. Sullivan and Cheryl L. Barton, PhD, say as manufacturers expand the clinical utility and healthcare professionals become more familiar with their efficacy and safety profiles, the checkpoint inhibitor market will continue to expand, becoming the cornerstone of many cancer treatment regimens.
THERAPEUTIC FOCUS – Targeting the Novel LANCL2 Pathway Offers Potential for a Differentiated Treatment Paradigm for Autoimmune Diseases
Andrew Leber, PhD, Raquel Hontecillas, PhD, and Josep Bassaganya-Riera, PhD, say current IBD therapeutics have mediocre efficacy, poor maintenance of response, and damaging side effects, including cancer, infection, and death, resulting in an unmet clinical need for safer and more effective oral therapeutics.
