Martinsried, Germany and Montréal, Canada – Medigene AG (Medigene, FSE: MDG1, Prime Standard), a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company focusing on the development of T cell immunotherapies, IRICoR, and the University of Montréal (Université de Montréal, UdeM) expand their mutual analyses of potentially novel cancer antigens.
In January 2020, Medigene entered into a research collaboration on novel cancer antigens for highly specific immunotherapies with UdeM and IRICoR, a pan-Canadian drug discovery research commercialization center. UdeM’s research team, led by Drs. Claude Perreault and Pierre Thibault at the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC), provided Medigene with tumor-specific antigens (TSAs) stemming from non-coding regions of the DNA (“dark matter”) which they discovered using their proprietary platform, as novel targets for various cancer indications, particularly for solid tumors.
