Elicio Therapeutics is re-engineering the body’s immune response to defeat cancer with potent lymph node targeted immunotherapies. Elicio’s Amphiphile platform combines expertise in materials science, immunology and immuno-oncology to develop novel immunotherapies, including cell therapy activators, immunomodulators, adjuvants and vaccines for an array of aggressive cancers.
Lymph nodes: where the immune response is orchestrated
Elicio has demonstrated preclinically that Amphiphiles target and concentrate an array of different immunotherapies in the lymph nodes, resulting in unprecedented tumor-specific immune responses and durable cures in multiple aggressive tumor models. Elicio’s lead Amphiphile program for KRAS-driven cancers will enter initial patient studies in 2020.
Elicio will begin multiple Phase 1/2 studies for ELI-002 in 2020. This program consists of an Amphiphile vaccine that has the potential to elicit powerful immune responses against KRAS, a mutation found in 90% of pancreatic cancers, and 40% of colorectal cancers.
