CiMaas is successful in expanding Natural Killer cells obtained from a small population in peripheral blood into very high numbers in just 2 weeks. This is directly applicable for clinical application in anti-cancer therapy.
Cimaas has received an important stimulus from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) for the development of a therapeutic dendritic cell (DC) vaccine against lung cancer. It concerns a loan of € 2.4 million.
As of October 1, 2020 esteemed tumor immunologist Prof Dr Jolanda de Vries becomes a member of the scientific advisory board. Jolanda de Vries is head of the department of Tumor Immunology at Radboudumc, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
Dutch website Oncologie.nu has interviewed CiMaas’ Gerard Bos on the development of the dendritic cell vaccine for lung cancer.
While CiMaas is able to produce the required high numbers of natural killer (NK) cells intended to realise in the collaboration, we decided not to continue. Kiadis has refocused its clinical strategy to a concept of universal donors while CiMaas keeps working on the process of individual donors for each cancer patient where NK cells… Read more »
CiMaas CEO Prof Gerard Bos was interviewed about the current and future directions for dendritic cell vaccines.
