About LTX-315

LTX-315 induces a potent stimulation of an extended range of tumor-specific T-cells attacking cancer, thereby increasing patient specific immune response. LTX-315 “pushes the accelerator” of the immune system through the release of potent immune stimulants. Furthermore, LTX-315 differentiates from many other cancer immunotherapies by inducing the release of an extended range of patient-specific tumor antigens including neo-antigens.

Combinations of complementary immunotherapy treatments are expected to be an integral part of future cancer treatment delivering significant clinical benefit. ICIs “release the brakes” imposed by the tumor on the immune system. LTX-315 has the potential to augment efficacy of ICIs without adding toxicity.
