Coastar Therapeutics is a biotech company focusing on a novel delivery platform for repeated oncolytic virus dosing to fully utilize the potential of the viral immunotherapy against cancer.
Oncolytic virus (OV) is the virus that can selectively infect and replicate in cancer cells. Once it lysis and kill tumor cells it exposes tumor antigens to trigger immune response and clear the rest of the cancer tissue.
Key features of OV therapy:
★Safe: Only infect and affect tumor cells
★Effective: Virus utilizes cancer cells as factories to multiply itself
★Versatile: Can be applied to all types of cancer and can combine with other immunotherapies (Ex: anti PD-1).
•Oncolytic virus is rapidly neutralized by antibodies and innate immune system, which limits the potential of the therapy.
•Due to the rapid clearance of the virus and poor PK profile, intravascular delivery is unfeasible.
We have a novel virus coating platform that can coat human cell membrane on each individual virus to evade immune system recognition and clearance.
Coastar’s ELCV coating platform used human cell lipid that contains self-identifying motifs to protect the virus from being neutralized by neutralizing antibody and immune cells.
