BRISTOL, N.J. & SEOUL

Caravan Biologix, Inc., a developer of novel cell-derived vesicle (CDV) therapeutics targeting specific cancers and gene therapy-related diseases, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Seoul-based MDimune Inc. to apply their nanovesicle technology to enhance the effects of chimeric antigen receptor-expressing natural killer (CAR-NK) cells on various solid tumor cancers. Research findings should provide important insights as Caravan continues to advance the development of its proprietary Mini-CAR™ platform for stand-alone therapeutics and whole-cell CAR co-therapies.

“We are pleased to establish this collaboration with MDimune, a developer of bio-extrusion and delivery,” stated Tom Malcolm, Ph.D., CSO and Founder of Caravan Biologix. “Findings from this collaboration will support our mini-CAR-NK CDV program, which focuses on treating primary liver carcinomas and other human diseases.”

Seung Wook Oh, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of MDimune added, “We are thrilled to launch this collaboration with Caravan Biologix. By joining the advanced mini-CAR-NK technology of Caravan and the enormous therapeutic potential of our vesicle technology, we hope to be able to demonstrate that our BioDrone® platform can significantly escalate the therapeutic promise of current CAR-T/NK-based therapies.”

“The signing of this agreement with Caravan Biologix is another important corporate milestone for MDimune. I am very pleased that our highly innovative and detail-oriented analytical approach to produce the highest quality of cell-derived vesicles at low cost has convinced Caravan Biologix to work with us on such an important endeavor to effectively treat patients with solid tumor cancers. It is clear that new solutions are needed to properly address the complexities associated with traditional whole cell CAR therapeutics,” stated Dr. Oh.
