allogeneic HSC-engineered iNKT (HSC-iNKT) cells
treatment for COVID-19
Major Proposed Activities
The novel SARS-CoV-2 is the cause of the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic, which is responsible for over 10.3 million cases and 500,000 deaths worldwide. There are over 2.6 million COVID-19 cases in the US, including over 217,000 cases in California. The proposed off-the-shelf allogeneic HSC-engineered iNKT (HSC-iNKT) cell therapy, if successful, may provide a treatment and save lives of COVID-19 patients at California.
