WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Sept. 16, 2022 — EXUMA Biotech, Corp., a clinical-stage biotechnology company discovering and developing cell and gene immunotherapies for solid and hematological tumors, announced that pre-clinical data from its solid-tumor subcutaneous CAR therapy program will be presented at the virtual 2022 Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy Conference: Discovery to Mainstream Oncology hosted by the Center of Excellence in Immunology of the National Cancer Institute from September 15 – 16, 2022. Additionally, EXUMA will participate in the 7th Annual CAR-TCR Summit organized by Hanson Wade from September 19-22, 2022, in Boston.
“We are encouraged by the progress of EXUMA’s novel cell and gene therapy platforms, which have the potential to address current challenges with cellular immunotherapies and provide for the next generation of CAR and TCR-based therapies. EXUMA is using advanced lentivectors designed to generate novel cellular therapeutics to treat cancer patients without the need for preparative, lymphodepleting chemotherapy. Our goal is to transform cellular immunotherapy by improving efficacy and safety while also reducing its time, cost, and complexity in order to bring these medicines broadly to patients with significant, unmet medical needs,” said Sid Kerkar, M.D., VP, R&D, Oncology.
