MaxCyte to Present at BIO-Europe 2019
Gaithersburg, Maryland - 07 November 2019 - MaxCyte (LSE: MXCT, MXCS), the global cell-based therapies and life sciences company, announces that President and Chief Executive Officer Doug Doerfler will present on the Company's CARMA™ cell-therapy platform at the annual BIO Europe conference on 13 November 2019 at Hamburg Messe, Hamburg, Germany.
The presentation, which will take place at 10:30 a.m. CET in Hall B1, Room 6, will focus on MaxCyte's position at the forefront of the development of next generation cell-based medicines with the proprietary CARMA platform.
CARMA is MaxCyte's clinical-stage, non-viral, mRNA-based cell therapy platform that allows for the transfection of mRNA into cells and provides a simple, rapid-to-manufacture, dose-controllable product. CARMA requires less than one day for manufacture therapies for patients, where existing CAR-T therapies require one to two weeks or more to manufacture. MaxCyte's wholly-owned lead CARMA candidate, MCY-M11, is currently being evaluated in a Phase I clinical trial in patients with advanced ovarian cancer and peritoneal mesothelioma.
MaxCyte is a clinical-stage global cell-based therapies and life sciences company applying its proprietary cell engineering platform to deliver the advances of cell-based medicine to patients with high unmet medical needs. MaxCyte is developing novel CARMA therapies for its own pipeline, with its first drug candidate in a Phase I clinical trial. CARMA is MaxCyte's mRNA-based proprietary therapeutic platform for autologous cell therapy for the treatment of solid cancers. In addition, through its life sciences business, MaxCyte leverages its Flow Electroporation Technology to enable its biopharmaceutical partners to advance the development of innovative medicines, particularly in cell therapy. MaxCyte has placed its flow electroporation instruments worldwide, including with all of the top ten global biopharmaceutical companies. The Company now has more than 80 partnered programme licenses in cell therapy with more than 45 licensed for clinical use, including six announced commercial licenses with aggregate potential milestones of more than $450m. With its robust delivery technology platform, MaxCyte helps its partners to unlock the full potential of their products. For more information, visit www.maxcyte.com.
