About ITIImmunomic Therapeutics, Inc. (ITI) is a privately-held clinical stage biotechnology company pioneering the study of the LAMP-based nucleic acid immunotherapy platforms. These disruptive technologies have the potential to fundamentally improve how we use immunotherapy for cancer, allergies and animal health. Headquartered in Hershey, PA with lab facilities in Rockville, MD, ITI has entered into a significant licensing agreement with Astellas Pharma Inc., to explore the use of LAMP-Vax, a next-generation immunotherapy platform, for use to prevent and treat allergic diseases. ITI believes that LAMP-based nucleic acid immunotherapy may have the potential to broaden the current use of cancer immunotherapy. Preclinical data is currently being developed to explore how LAMP nucleic acid constructs could both amplify and activate the immune response in highly immunogenic tumor types and also be used to create robust immune responses to tumor types that otherwise do not provoke an immune response.
