- Next-generation immunotherapy called MyISA® for individual cancer patients
ISA Pharmaceuticals B.V., a clinical-stage immunotherapy company, has joined the recently established Tumor neoantigEn SeLection Alliance (TESLA), a global cancer neoantigen alliance forged by the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy and the Cancer Research Institute, which was announced on December 1st, 2016. Consisting of 30 of the world’s leading research organizations and corporations, the group’s focus will be on developing better predictive models for identifying neoantigens. The initiative will support tests carried out by its members and the consistent improvement of algorithms to analyze tumor DNA and RNA sequences in order to predict the immunogenic capacity of neoantigens.
This initiative will support ISA’s strategy to expand its innovative portfolio of cancer immunotherapies by developing personalized therapeutic SLP® vaccines directed against neoantigens under the MyISA® program.
