VOR BIOPHARMA

Pioneering novel targeted cell therapies for cancer

ABOUT VOR

 

CAR-T therapy has emerged as a promising new treatment approach for hematologic (blood-borne) cancers. This approach works by modifying the body’s own immune cells (T-cells) so that they recognize and kill cancer cells by targeting markers (antigens) on the cells’ surface. To date, successful CAR-T therapy has been largely limited to patients with advanced B-cell malignancies. In these patients, CAR-T cells target markers that are present on all B-cells, both healthy and cancerous. While the body can safely function without B-cells, using CAR-T therapy to treat other cancers—which would involve targeting cells necessary for survival—remains elusive. Furthermore, CAR-T therapy has shown more limited results in treating solid tumors. Vor Biopharma is developing a new approach to CAR-T therapy to broaden its applicability in other cancers, particularly those with limited therapeutic options, by overcoming key barriers that limit current modalities. Vor is excited to have the support of a world-class team of immunologists and oncologists to develop its pipeline of novel immunotherapies.
