"[...] Accum™ helps us target active ingredients precisely to the origin of infections or diseases. [...]" Sébastien Plouffe, CEO and Director, Defence Therapeutics
Born and raised in Hannover, Lower Saxony follows social and economic developments around the globe. As a passionate entrepreneur and columnist he explains and compares the most diverse business models as well as markets for interested stock traders.
Cancer is one of the most common causes of death and those affected often have a long journey of suffering. What progress can Defence Therapeutics show in the field of fighting the disease?
'Cancer is a multifactorial disease caused by mutations accumulated through years. Therefore, targeting cancer through a specific pathway may not lead to the hoped-for outcome.
Defence is working on the development of the next generation oncology-targeting therapies. Most of its arsenal is based on the use of the Accum technology, which consists of empowering biomedicine's accumulation into target cells via endosomal escape.
As such, the company has developed antibody-drug conjugates, anti-cancer small molecules and protein- or cell-based anti-cancer vaccine formulations. Multiple Phase I trials using some of these products are expected to start in Q1/Q2 of 2023.'
