Lyell Immunopharma is using the latest insights in immunology to reprogram T cells to cure cancer. CAR T cells have had most success so far in treating patients with B cell lymphomas. However, around 90% of all cancers are solid tumors where only limited success with cell therapies has been seen. Lyell is using their proprietary epigenetic and genetic reprogramming technologies to develop cell therapies to address these tumors for reliable and curative responses. Lyell’s approach involves identifying the “active ingredient” of adoptive cell therapies to either overcome loss of T cell function or to create T cell populations with durable stemness to infiltrate tumors. Lyell’s lead product, LYL797 is in Phase 1 clinical trials for non-small cell lung cancer, with other products in the pipeline.
