Inceptor Bio and Avectas Announce Collaboration to Improve Manufacturing of CAR-T Cell Therapies for the Treatment of Solid Tumors

MORRISVILLE, NC and DUBLIN, Ireland — October 12, 2022: Inceptor Bio, a cell therapy biotechnology company and Avectas, a cell engineering technology leader, announce their collaboration to improve the development and manufacturing of next-generation CAR-T cell therapies for the treatment of solid tumors.

Under the agreement, Inceptor will utilize Avectas' SOLUPORE® technology as an alternative to electroporation for engineering T cells with the goal to yield a healthier T cell product.  Avectas’ SOLUPORE® technology is well suited to Inceptor Bio’s CAR-T cell process, which aims to improve the quality of the engineered T cells, and ultimately, enhance their durability in the tumor microenvironment. By combining Avectas' SOLUPORE® delivery with Inceptor Bio's CAR-T cell therapy platform, the engineered cells have the potential for improved performance and efficacy.

Avectas has developed the non-viral SOLUPORE® technology to overcome the limitations of current delivery modalities to enable cell engineering, including complex editing, by efficiently delivering cargoes into cells.  SOLUPORE® technology permeabilizes the target cell membrane so that molecular cargoes can be delivered while retaining high cell viability and functionality levels.

"Inceptor Bio is committed to building and advancing a pipeline of programs based on diversified cell therapies, including CAR-M, CAR-T, and CAR-NK. This collaboration with Avectas is part of our strategy of advancing Inceptor Bio's next-generation cell therapy platform focused on multiple novel mechanisms to address solid tumors," said Shailesh Maingi, Founder and CEO of Inceptor Bio. "The aim for our proprietary CAR-T platform is to transform how solid tumors are treated."

"Avectas is delighted to collaborate with Inceptor Bio to leverage the benefits of the SOLUPORE delivery platform for solid tumor CAR-T cell therapies," said Michael Maguire, PhD, CEO of Avectas. "Excellent cell health and functionality, after complex editing, are critical to the success of these next-generation therapies".
