SMART CARTTM is our 2nd generation enhanced CAR-T module that tackles the multiple challenges in treating solid tumors, including immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment (TME), which impacts T-cell activation and survival, tumor heterogeneity and hard-to-penetrate tumor structures.
We’ve developed a highly differentiated strategy to target tumor microenvironment (TME) and further unlocked the vast potential of immunotherapies. Our design not only blocks endogenous TME molecule signaling, but also converts TME negative signaling into positive signaling. This promotes CAR-T cell expansion and persistence in tumor tissue. In preclinical studies, SMART CARTTM has demonstrated unique advantages, including enhanced proliferation, persistence and tumor killing ability.
