RevImmune Announces First Dosage of T-Cell Therapy to Cancer Patient with COVID-19
RevImmune Inc., a biotech company based in Paris, France and Maryland, U.S., has been working with the Cancer Research Institute (CRI) on their T-Cell technology development. The duo announced they have administered the first dose to a patient in a study designed to assess the benefit of interleukin-7 (IL-7) in cancer patients who also have COVID-19.
This project came to light after studies showed that cancer patients with COVID-19 have lowered T-cell levels. The clinical trial aims to evaluate how or if RevImmune’s product CYT107 benefits the 48 people in the trial. CYT107 is a therapeutic form of the master growth factor for human T-cells and could contribute to immune therapies for cancer patients. Regular cancer treatments already contribute to lowered T-cell levels, a sign of a weakened immune system. IL-7 have been shown to rapidly restore functional immune cells. RevImmune is excited to take their research to the next stage.
