Intensity Therapeutics Inc. – Delivering Improved Immunotherapy
Intensity Therapeutics Inc. got its start when Lewis H. Bender, then the CEO of Interleukin Genetics Inc., pondered the treatment failures in checkpoint inhibitors. “I thought, ‘There’s a steering wheel missing,’” he recalls. The key would be to kill tumor cells, but in a way that left them and their cell surface proteins more or less intact.
Throwing Cancer a One-Two Combo
Many cancer treatments have achieved cures in mice only to fail in humans. Intensity Therapeutics has studied these failed challengers, and it may have learned why they failed to go the distance.
