Scancell Holdings plc Announces Strategic Collaboration with Karolinska Institutet
Mar 11 16
Scancell Holdings plc announced that it has embarked on a strategic research collaboration with scientists at the Rheumatology Unit at Karolinska Institutet, led by Professors Lars Klareskog and Vivianne Malmström. The collaboration will further explore the scientific and clinical role of citrullinated proteins in the treatment of cancer. Scancell's Moditope® platform technology overcomes the immune suppression induced by tumours themselves, allowing activated T cells to seek out and kill tumour cells that would otherwise be hidden from the immune system. This is achieved by stimulating the production of CD4+ T cells using citrullinated tumour-associated peptide epitopes, which overcome self-tolerance and destroy tumour cells. The teams of Professors Klareskog and Malmström have uncovered a central role for citrullinated proteins in the pathogenesis of the autoimmune disease rheumatoid arthritis. Conversely, Scancell has discovered that citrullinated proteins are also targets on cancer cells and this underpins the use of citrullinated peptides in the Company's Moditope® cancer immunotherapy platform. The groups of Professors Klareskog and Malmström perform research in the area of rheumatology and their work has been published in a number of leading academic journals, including Nature, Lancet, Arthritis & Rheumatism, Nature Medicine, Nature Genetics and Annual Review of Immunology.
Ferring Pharmaceuticals and Karolinska Institutet Sign Collaboration Agreement for Establishment of a Research Center Exploiting the Human Microbiome
Jan 27 16
Ferring Pharmaceuticals and Karolinska Institutet announced that a collaboration agreement has been signed for the establishment of a research center exploiting the human microbiome. The programme will be fully funded by Ferring Pharmaceuticals and governed by a joint steering committee. The proposed project focuses on therapeutic areas where Ferring has extensive expertise. Karolinska Institutet has a deep understanding of the human microbiome. Parts of the research will be carried out at the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) that provides access to a broad technical platform for studying complex microbiological communities in well-defined human material. The collaboration between the two partners form a solid foundation for the ambition of a better understanding of the contribution of the human microbiome to physiology and pathophysiology and opens opportunities for development of novel therapies. The research will be led by Professor Lars Engstrand, Karolinska Institutet, who will serve as director. The center will further establish an internationally competitive infrastructure with focus on translational research in the microbiome field set up to develop a comprehensive mapping of the human microbiome in health and disease.
