Vycellix’s proprietary platform technologies confer optimized competitive benefits covering: 1) the engineering of allogeneic cells without the need for gene-editing or requiring lymphodepletion of the patient (VY-UC); 2) cell expansion (VY-M); 3) cell potency (VY-X); 4) gene delivery/transduction (VY-OZ). The Company is leveraging these collective assets to develop next-generation, cell-based immunotherapies for the treatment of cancers and other indications with active commercial partnering activities ongoing.
Vycellix’s platforms were all discovered by scientists at the world-renowned Karolinska Institutet (KI) in Stockholm, Sweden. The Company is a collaborative partner in “NextGenNK”, an international Competence Center for the development of next-generation NK cell-based cancer immunotherapies based at KI and funded by Sweden’s innovations agency, Vinnova. KI is globally recognized for its Nobel Assembly, which awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
