Corner Therapeutics to Present Pre-Clinical Data on their Novel Dendritic Cell Hyperactivation Platform at the 4th Inflammasome Therapeutics Summit

WATERTOWN, Mass., November 30, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Corner Therapeutics, a biotechnology company exploiting a new scientific paradigm to boost the intelligence of the natural immune response to disease, today announced three presentations of data on its dendritic cell hyperactivation (hDC) platform at the 4th Inflammasome Therapeutics Summit, taking place November 29 to December 1, 2022 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Corner has developed proprietary chemical mimics called DC hyperactivators, which stimulate durable protective immunity through the production of polyclonal populations of long-lived memory T cells. DC hyperactivators operate by stimulating inflammasome activities within living dendritic cells, which function to orchestrate T cell immunity. Corner’s technology is particularly effective at inducing protective immunity in elderly or immunocompromised populations, where immune system dysfunction raises the risk of infection and cancer.

Preclinical data in human and mouse model systems demonstrate the ability of Corner Therapeutics’ DC hyperactivators to stimulate inflammasomes in dendritic cells that have migrated to lymph nodes, where the activation of tumor- or infection-specific T cells occurs.

"The data we’re sharing at the Inflammasome Therapeutics summit showcases our ability to stimulate and hyperactivate DCs through inflammasome activity, to drive robust and long-lasting T cell memory," said Steven M. Altschuler, MD, CEO and Board Chair of Corner. "While many approaches focus on suppressing the inflammasome, Corner’s technology represents a true paradigm shift in immunotherapy."
