American Gene Technologies
AGT is an emerging gene and cell therapeutics company with a proprietary lentiviral platform capable of broad applications including large and orphan indications, infectious disease, immune-oncology, and monogenic disorders. AGT expects to take its lead candidate for an HIV functional cure into the clinic in 2018 and is pioneering a novel immuno-oncology approach of stimulating gamma-delta (γδ) T cells to attack multiple cancers. AGT has a diverse portfolio of patent filings surrounding key tools and components in viral vectors, gene therapy, and regenerative medicine, and a key patent in AGT's novel immuno-oncology approach has already been granted. AGT has developed a modified gene (patent-pending) able to express therapeutic levels of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) that it is deploying, along with other proprietary AGT technologies, in pursuit of a cure for Phenylketonuria (PKU). AGT expects to begin clinical activities for PKU in 2019, and for liver cancer (AGT's first immuno-oncology therapy) in 2020.americangene.com
