The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Key Developments

Golden Meditech Holdings Limited and MD Anderson Cancer Center Team Up to Create Cellenkos, Inc

Golden Meditech Holdings Limited and The University of Texas announced the creation of Cellenkos Inc. a start-up enterprise focused on umbilical cord blood derived T-regulatory cellular therapies. Cellenkos, to be based in Houston, is funded with an initial investment of USD 10 million with warrants to purchase an additional USD 10 million worth of shares by Golden Meditech and an independent strategic investor. The agreement covers technologies arising from the laboratory investigations of Simrit Parmar, M.D., associate professor in the Department of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy at MD Anderson. Cellenkos will build on Dr. Parmar's existing and potential future pre-clinical and clinical research to develop various T-reg-based therapies for clinical use in treating autoimmune diseases where the patient's T-reg cells are often defective and/or lower in number. These chronic and morbid diseases require long-term treatment with drugs that suppress the immune system that often have adverse side effects. Adoptive therapy with cord blood derived T-reg cells has the potential to replenish the immune system and impact patient care by providing novel, non-pharmacologic options.
