About Incysus Therapeutics, Inc. Incysus is focused on delivering a novel off-the-shelf cell therapy for the treatment of cancer. By using genetically modified gamma-delta (γδ) T cells, the Company’s technology addresses the challenges that immunotherapies face targeting cold, low mutation cancers. Incysus’ immuno-oncology programs include activated and gene-modified adoptive cellular therapies that protect cells from chemotherapy and allow novel combinations to disrupt the tumor microenvironment and more selectively target cancer cells. Since the Company’s inception, Incysus has received approval of two Investigational New Drug applications (INDs) and has initiated several cancer programs in early preclinical stages, including a checkpoint combination program. The Company’s first program is targeted to treating leukemia and lymphoma with a donor γδ T cell and its second program is targeted to newly-diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM). In collaboration with our academic partners, including the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Incysus has advanced its technology and expects to begin both Phase 1 trials in 2019.
