Using TAC Technology to Attack Cancer Cells
At Triumvira Immunologics, we are reprogramming the immune system to attack cancer cells. In order to do this, we use genetic engineering to redirect T cells, an important component of the immune system, to recognize proteins found on the surface of cancer cells. We use T cells taken from a patient, engineer them to express our T cell-Antigen Coupler (TAC), then expand them and then administer the modified cells back to patients, where they will find the cancer cells and kill them. Triumvira’s TACs are a completely novel and innovative approach to reprogramming T cells, which we believe offer important advantages over the approach taken by other companies.
