SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Immusoft Corporation, a cell therapy company dedicated to improving the lives of patients with rare diseases, today announced that it will present at the upcoming WORLDSymposium 2022 Conference, held in San Diego, February 7-11, 2022. WORLDSymposium is the largest international gathering of lysosomal disease researchers.
Details of the presentation are as follows:
Presentation Title: Iduronidase-transposed human B lymphocytes correct enzyme deficiency and glycosaminoglycan storage disease in immunodeficient mucopolysaccharidosis type I mice
Date/Time: Thursday, February 10, 2022, 1 pm PT (4 pm ET)
Presenter: Christiane Hampe, Ph.D., Senior Director of Research, Immusoft
Immusoft is developing a new modality of gene delivery that holds the promise of being both durable and re-dosable. The company’s lead investigational drug candidate ISP-001, is a first-in-class investigational treatment for Hurler syndrome, the most severe form of mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I), a rare lysosomal storage disease. There is a significant unmet need for new therapies with improved efficacy and convenience in MPS I, where the current standard of care is enzyme replacement therapy (ERT).

Immusoft is a cell therapy company focused on developing novel therapies for rare diseases using a sustained delivery of protein therapeutics from a patient’s own cells. The company is developing a technology platform called Immune System Programming (ISP™), which modifies a patient’s B cells and instructs the cells to produce gene-encoded medicines. The B cells that are reprogrammed using ISP become miniature drug factories that are expected to survive in patients for many years. The company is based in Seattle, WA.
