According to a press release from the company, preclinical data shows AIM ACT T cells are effective in aiding BiTE therapy. That means they can work to help patients undergoing remission and shows those finished with BiTE therapy have a higher rate of remaining cancer free.
NexImmune notes this data suggests AIM ACT T cells offer immunosurveillance even after BiTE therapy ends. That would make it better than CD8+ T cells and improve the maintenance of remission.
Johannes Zakrzewski, M.D., the Principal Investigator of the preclinical trial, said the following:
“Our preclinical findings hold the promise that clinically, the AIM multi-TAA specific T cells can significantly enhance the activity of BiTEs over the current standard of care and also provide immunosurveillance, potentially helping extension and maintenance of remission in patients.”
