TRACT Therapeutics and Taiwan Bio Therapeutics Announce Poster Presentation at American Transplant Congress 2024

[Chicago, IL and Taipei, Taiwan- 12Mar2024] - TRACT Therapeutics and Taiwan Bio Therapeutics are pleased to announce a poster presentation at the 2024 annual meeting of the American Transplant Congress (ATC) taking place June 1-5, 2024, in Philadelphia, PA.   TRACT Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biotechnology company, and Taiwan Bio Therapeutics, a world-class expert in cell therapy manufacturing, formed a strategic partnership in Nov 2023 to advance a novel regulatory T cell (Treg) therapy approach to preventing rejection in solid organ transplants.  Together, the companies will launch a Phase 2 clinical trial investigating the ability of Treg therapy to reduce the use of immunosuppressant drugs in living donor kidney transplant recipients.  Research centers will be located in the United States and Taiwan.

Joseph R Leventhal, MD, PhD, Fowler McCormick Professor of Surgery at Northwestern University and Scientific Founder of TRACT Therapeutics stated, “Developing more effective treatments for patients facing an organ transplant is a pressing need and the ATC provides a dynamic platform for professionals to exchange insights on their work and experiences in the field of transplantation medicine. TRACT’s regulatory T cell therapy has the potential to make a significant impact on treatment paradigms, improving patient outcomes and quality of life, and we look forward to sharing our Phase 2 trial design and methods at the conference.”

Details of the poster presentation are as follows:

Abstract Title: “A Phase 2 Study of Regulatory T Cell Therapy to Achieve Immunosuppression (IS) Reduction in Living Donor Kidney Transplant (LDKTx) Recipients:  The RETIRE Trial”
