Chroma Medicine to Showcase Data Demonstrating Durable Multiplex Epigenetic Editing to Enhance Allogeneic CAR T at 65th ASH Annual Meeting
Boston, MA, November 2, 2023 – Chroma Medicine, Inc., (Chroma) a genomic medicine company pioneering single-dose epigenetic editing therapeutics, today announced that it will present a poster demonstrating the potential of its multiplex epigenetic editing platform at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) 65th Annual Meeting, taking place December 9-12, 2023, in San Diego, CA.
The ASH abstract contains data showing the potential of multiplex epigenetic editing to produce functional allogeneic CAR T cells that do not exhibit a graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) response, resist CD8+ and CD4+ T cell alloresponses, and resist the NK missing-self response normally consequent of reduced MHC class I expression, without introduction of genotoxic events.
Details of the poster presentation are:
Title: Durable Multiplex Epigenetic Editing for Generation of Allogeneic CAR T without Chromosomal Rearrangements
Presenter: Jamie Schafer, Ph.D., Associate Director, Ex Vivo Program Sciences, Chroma Medicine
Session: 703. Cellular Immunotherapies: Basic and Translational: Poster II
Session Date and Time: Sunday, December 10, 2023, 6:00-8:00 PM
The full abstract is available through the ASH conference website.
