About the Topic

The recent progress in the field of immuno-oncology has dramatically changed the clinical approach to treating cancer. Tremendous excitement centers on Adoptive Cell Therapy (ACT), an approach that delivers living cells derived from the human immune system and engineered to target and kill cancer cells. Results from numerous clinical studies of pioneer CAR-T therapy products showed tremendous success and provided evidence of complete and durable cancer remissions. However, at the same time, many challenges to effect safe and effective CAR-T therapy became evident.

Building on the success of the pioneer CAR-T therapies, Xyphos is developing best-in-class CAR-T therapy products based on our ACCEL technology which includes our universal 
CAR and a family of bispecific, antibody-like adaptor molecules, called MicAbodies™ and MicAdaptors. Our vision is to provide precision, control, safety and ultimately durable efficacy to this revolutionary class of cancer therapy. Further details are at
