BRANFORD, Conn., Dec. 4, 2017

BRANFORD, Conn., Dec. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IsoPlexis Corporation (IsoPlexis), a privately held life science company at the forefront of single-cell analytics technology and the immune-based cancer treatment revolution, announced today that it will present new data from a collaboration with Bellicum Pharmaceuticals (Bellicum) at the American Society of Hematology's Annual Meeting and Exposition, held December 9-12, 2017, in Atlanta, Ga.

The presentation will highlight how IsoCode Chip, IsoPlexis' core technology developed to detect cellular responses at the single-cell level, was used to assess functional response to prostate stem cell antigen (PSCA) with Bellicum's proprietary GoCAR-T products targeting PSCA-expressing solid tumors.

The IsoCode Chip was used to assess Bellicum's CAR-T products with its novel "on" switch, and showed the ability for Bellicum's switch, inducible MyD88/CD40 (iMC), to increase the prevalence of on-target, antigen-specific polyfunctional CAR-T cells against solid tumor targets when activated by the dimerizing ligand rimiducid.

"IsoPlexis is excited to collaborate with Bellicum on this exciting research to push novel CAR-T therapies forward," said IsoPlexis Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Sean Mackay. "Using the IsoCode Chip, we're helping our partners use this polyfunctional T-cell data to target improved patient outcomes in difficult-to-treat cancers."

"The IsoPlexis technology helped advance the Bellicum product characterization process," said Dr. Aaron Foster, Ph.D., Bellicum Vice President of Product Discovery. "By characterizing our GoCAR-T products in a deeper functional fashion, we are able to show the ability to produce highly on-target functional reactions with our inducible costimulation platform."
