Nutcracker Therapeutics to Present Data for Two mRNA Drug Candidates at SITC 2023


EMERYVILLE, Calif., November 1, 2023Nutcracker Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company dedicated to developing transformative RNA therapies through its proprietary technology platform, today announced two poster presentations: one on the company’s lead mRNA therapeutic candidate, NTX-250, which targets human papillomavirus (HPV)-driven cancers; the other on its latest therapeutic candidate, NTX-471, which targets CD47 and CCR4. These data will be presented at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer’s (SITC’s) 38th Annual Meeting & Pre-Conference Programs (SITC 2023) in San Diego, CA, from November 1 through 5, 2023.

Nutcracker’s presentation on NTX-250 will describe how its three RNA-encoded protein components (HPV E6/E7, IL-12, and LIGHT) work together to drive enhanced immune responses and tumor clearance in murine models of HPV-driven tumors, while also providing immunogenic memory. The presentation on NTX-471 will describe unique mRNA compositions that can selectively target CD47 on cancerous cells over those on red blood cells, potentially alleviating the anemic side effects seen with anti-CD47 drugs currently under development.
