Cartherics is a privately-held biotechnology company based in Melbourne, Australia that is rearming the body’s immune system to fight cancer.  It is developing cell-based immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer, with a portfolio of CAR-T and CAR-NK cell products.  The Company’s allogeneic (“off-the-shelf”) cell platform is based upon induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) generated from donated cord blood that can be differentiated into NK cells, T cells and other cells of the immune system.  The iPSCs are genetically engineered to provide enhanced function for the derived NK and other immune cells.

The Company is also developing autologous CAR-T cell therapies. These use the patient’s own immune system T-cells, which are modified to be effective against the patient’s cancer cells. CTH-001 for the treatment of CTCL is the first product candidate progressing into human clinical trials. A second candidate, CTH-004, is being developed for the treatment of ovarian cancer.
