M2 PHARMA-September 15, 2014-NeoStem signs exclusive license agreement with The Rockefeller University


NeoStem, a company involved in the emerging cellular therapy industry, has signed an exclusive license agreement with The Rockefeller University.

It was reported on Friday that the contract has been signed for patented technologies that further expand the firm's intellectual property portfolio associated with its Targeted Cancer Immunotherapy Programme.

The Rockefeller University patents licensed by NeoStem are entitled 'Methods for use of Apoptotic Cells to Deliver Antigen to Dendritic Cells for Induction or Tolerization of T Cells'. Studies indicated that dendritic cells can be removed from the body in their inactive form, loaded with antigens and then re-infused and activated, leading to an antigen specific immune response, including immune responses directed against cancer antigens.
