Elicio Therapeutics is re-engineering the body’s immune response to defeat cancer and infectious diseases with potent lymph node targeted immunotherapies and vaccines. Elicio’s Amphiphile platform combines expertise in materials science and immunology to develop novel immunotherapies and vaccines, including cell therapy activators, immunomodulators, adjuvants and vaccines for an array of aggressive cancers and infectious diseases.
Lymph nodes: where the immune response is orchestrated
Elicio has demonstrated preclinically that Amphiphiles target and concentrate an array of different immunogens in the lymph nodes, resulting in tumor or pathogen targeted immunity, including potent T cell and humoral responses. Elicio’s lead Amphiphile program for KRAS-driven cancers will enter initial patient studies in early 2021.
Elicio will begin multiple Phase 1/2 studies for ELI-002 in 2021. This program consists of an Amphiphile vaccine combined with Elicio’s universal AMP CpG adjuvant (ELI-004) with the potential to elicit powerful immune responses against the seven key KRAS mutations, found in 25% of all solid tumors, including 90% of pancreatic cancers, and 40% of colorectal cancers.
