Cytonus Therapeutics Cargocyte Platform for Delivery of Oncolytic Viruses to be Highlighted at the ASGCT Annual Meeting

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cytonus Therapeutics Inc., a biotechnology company developing new
platforms for delivering biologics, announced today that it will be
presenting preclinical data for its Cargocyte™ technology platform at
the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) annual meeting
April 29 – May 2 in Washington, DC.

“We are excited to be presenting our preclinical data supporting
Cargocytes™, a first-of-its-kind, cell-based platform technology for
delivery of an Oncolytic Virus into metastatic tumors,” said Remo
Moomiaie-Qajar, M.D., president and CEO of Cytonus. “Our technology
unleashes the promise of using Oncolytic Viruses to treat solid tumors
by addressing a number of critical problems they inherently have, mainly
homing the viruses to specific tissue without the immune system
destroying it and then delivering those viruses into tumor cells. In
addition, we are proud of our growing immune-oncology work with our
Cargocytes and look forward to sharing our data at this year’s ASGCT

Cargocytes are engineered allogenic cell lines that can carry a variety
of payloads like small molecule compounds, gene editing therapies,
therapeutic RNAs, and powerful biologics such as immune modulating
cytokines, antibodies and oncolytic viruses.
