Gritstone is a clinical-stage biotech that develops immunotherapies against multiple types of cancer as well as infectious diseases. A key component of the GRTS product development process is the integration of two key pillars:
Firstly: A proprietary machine learning-based platform, Gritstone EDGETM, which predicts antigens on the surface of cells, such as those derived from tumors, which can be scanned by the immune system.
Secondly: Another advantage of these antigens is that they can be employed by their manufacturers to create potent immunotherapies aimed at specifically attacking and destroying disease-causing cells.
In a Phase 1 study under GRTS’s “CORAL” program, Gritstone last month announced that it has dosed the first patient with its candidate vaccine COVID-19.
- Through the GRTS study, it was hoped to find out if using its self-amplifying mRNA (SAM) and adenoviral vectors with SARS-CoV-2 virus antigens would be immunogenic and safe.
- The three antigens under study by GRTS include both Spike Antigen and other antigens not included in current licensed vaccines.
- Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Consortium (IDCRC) funded the Phase 1 trial of Gritstone (GRTS) by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
