BOSTON, Mass., and LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 26, 2019 – Talaris Therapeutics, Inc., a privately held biotechnology company developing transformative cell therapies that have the potential to eliminate the burden of chronic immunosuppression for organ transplant recipients, announced today that CEO Scott Requadt will present at the annual Cell & Gene Meeting on the Mesa to be held October 2-4 in Carlsbad, California.
Talaris is developing an investigational, allogeneic cell therapy to induce or restore patients’ immune tolerance by establishing a stable, chimeric immune system comprised of both donor and recipient cells. Phase 2 data have shown that this therapy can durably free a significant proportion of living donor kidney transplant recipients from all chronic immunosuppression by about 12 months after their transplant, without rejection of their transplanted organ.
The following are specific details regarding Talaris’ company presentation at the conference:
