Tessa Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing a portfolio of novel next-generation cell therapies for cancer.
Tessa is leading the way in CD30 targeting using cell therapy. CD30 is a well validated lymphoma target with homogenous expression in Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma and multiple subsets of non-Hodgkin Lymphomas. Tessa’s approach to target CD30-positive cancers using CAR-T (Chimeric Antigen Receptor) cells has demonstrated excellent safety and efficacy in early clinical trials. Having received the RMAT and PRIME designation, Tessa is now advancing the therapy to a pivotal trial.
Off-the-shelf allogeneic cell therapy has significant advantages and is the next frontier in cancer treatment. Tessa is developing a unique and potentially transformational allogeneic CD30-CAR EBVST platform capable of targeting a broad range of cancers. This platform is based on decades-long research and development on unique properties of Virus Specific T-cells (VSTs) by our Scientific Co-Founder, Dr. Malcolm Brenner, and his team at Baylor College of Medicine.
Tessa is proud to be innovators in the field of cancer immunotherapy, and remains committed to making a difference in the lives of cancer patients worldwide. Our global headquarters are in Singapore, where we are building our own state-of-the-art commercial manufacturing facility. We are also currently setting up our United States headquarters in New Jersey.
