Genocea to Host KOL Symposium Highlighting GEN-011’s Potential to Transform T cell Therapy for Solid Tumors
Genocea management will highlight the potential for GEN-011 to become a best-in-class adoptive T cell therapy. GEN-011 was designed to improve upon TIL therapy. Using the company’s proprietary ATLASTM platform to select neoantigens and T cells derived from peripheral blood, Genocea believes GEN-011 may deliver greater efficacy through more active and longer-lasting T cells specific for the tumor than possible through other approaches. Genocea has also established a robust, scalable manufacturing process to simplify and expand cancer patient access to therapy.
The event will also feature
“Through GEN-011, Genocea is creating an entirely new category of T cell therapy,” said

Genocea’s mission is to conquer cancer by developing personalized cancer immunotherapies in multiple tumor types. Our unique ATLAS™ platform comprehensively profiles each patient’s T cell responses to potential targets, or antigens, on the tumor. ATLAS enables us to optimize the neoantigens for inclusion in our immunotherapies and exclude inhibitory antigens that can exert an immunosuppressive effect. We are advancing two ATLAS-enabled programs: GEN-009, our neoantigen vaccine for which we are conducting a Phase 1/2a clinical trial and expect preliminary clinical results in the third quarter of 2020, and GEN-011, our neoantigen-specific cell therapy using T cells derived from peripheral blood, for which we intend to file an Investigational New Drug Application in the second quarter of 2020.
