Typhimurium-Attenuated Cancer Therapy platform to enter clinical trials. ACTM-838 delivers immunomodulatory agents, including engineered IL-15plex  (IL-15/ IL-15Ra) and STING, directly to phagocytic antigen-presenting cells located in the tumor microenvironment.

"The immunosuppressive nature of the tumor microenvironment (TME) poses a significant hurdle in the treatment of solid tumors, restricting the efficacy of numerous promising anticancer therapies," stated Jason J. Luke, MD, FACP, an internationally recognized physician-scientist specializing in the clinical development of immunotherapies for solid tumors. "Actym Therapeutics has introduced an advanced technology that precisely delivers and expresses active STING in tumor-resident myeloid cells through a systemic therapy."

Jason J. Luke further explained, "Actym’s strategy to modulate the TME holds unique promise to break through these immunological obstacles. Their leading candidate, ACTM-838, has demonstrated safety and efficacy in preclinical trials and is now poised to proceed to clinical evaluation."

"The IND approval for ACTM-838 represents a significant achievement for Actym and a promising step towards leveraging immunotherapy to more effectively treat patients with solid tumors," commented Tom Smart, CEO of Actym. "We are also eager to extend the potential uses of our STACT™ biological platform by developing new product candidates both independently and in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies."
