BOSTON, Mass. and SEATTLE, Wash. – May 9, 2023 – Affini-T Therapeutics, Inc., a precision immunotherapy company unlocking the power of T cells against oncogenic driver mutations, today announced that preclinical data for its oncogenic driver program targeting KRAS G12D, AFNT–212, will be presented at the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) 26th Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, California.
“Our mission is to address the significant unmet needs of patients with hard-to-treat solid tumors by advancing precision immunotherapies that target oncogenic driver mutations,” said Loïc Vincent, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, Affini-T Therapeutics. “We believe gene editing is an important tool in the development of cell therapies as it allows for precise and targeted modifications within cells, aimed to improve safety and activity of these therapies. We look forward to presenting encouraging preclinical data for our gene-edited KRAS G12D-targeting TCR-T cell therapy, AFNT-212, at ASGCT this year.”
Poster presentation details are as follows:
