MONTREAL, September 11, 2019 – ExCellThera Inc., an advanced clinical stage biotechnology company delivering molecules and bioengineering solutions to expand stem and immune cells for therapeutic use, announced today that Guy Sauvageau, President and CEO, will present a company update at the annual Cell & Gene Meeting on the Mesa to be held October 2-4 in Carlsbad, California.
ExCellThera’s lead technology, ECT-001, is a combination of a small molecule and an optimized culture system. The technology, capable of expanding stem and immune cells exponentially in as little as seven days, is used in novel curative cell therapies for patients with blood cancers and other hematologic malignancies, allowing more rapid engraftment, greatly reduced incidence of transplant-related mortality, low risk of chronic graft-versus-host disease and low risk of relapse, resulting in better outcomes for patients. ECT-001 has received FDA orphan drug designation (ODD) for the prevention of graft-versus-host disease and regenerative medicine advanced therapy (RMAT) designation in the treatment of hematologic malignancies.
