April 29, 2021 07:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time
BROOKLYN, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brooklyn ImmunoTherapeutics LLC (NYSE American: BTX) (“Brooklyn”) today announced it has acquired an exclusive license for mRNA gene editing and cell therapies technology of Factor Bioscience Limited and Novellus Therapeutics Limited pursuant to an exercise of a previously announced option.
The license includes use of an extensively patented process to develop gene editing compounds using mRNA, which preclinical data suggest demonstrate a high degree of efficiency, as well as being non-immunogenic and non-mutagenic.
The licensed platform includes mRNA cell reprogramming, which is considered to be the highest efficiency and footprint-free technology that can be applied to both allogeneic and autologous cells, and is combined with mRNA-based gene editing – along with a proprietary gene editing protein – to eliminate off-target effects. It also includes the proprietary ToRNAdo lipid delivery system that provides efficient delivery of mRNA ex vivo and in vivo to skin, brain, eye and lung tissue.
