Carina Biotech

[Not Yet Scheduled]
Carina Biotech is an Australian company designing and developing CAR-T and other adoptive cell therapies against novel antigen targets for solid cancers. Carina has also developed a proprietary multi-functional chemokine receptor platform to enable CAR-T cell homing and access to tumours, and a CAR-T cell manufacturing platform to increase access, efficacy and persistence.

Carina’s lead program, a LGR5 CAR-T cell therapy, targets patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. LGR5 is a cancer stem cell marker that is highly expressed on advanced colorectal cancer as well as other cancers. Carina’s pre-clinical studies of the LGR5 CAR-T cell have shown highly promising results with complete tumour regression and no tumour recurrence. We are currently undertaking IND enabling studies with the aim of commencing a Phase 1/2 clinical trial later this year.
