Gracell Biotechnologies is a clinical-stage CAR-T focused company. Its pipeline is derived from two proprietary technology platforms: the FasTCAR and TruUCAR platforms. FasTCAR is an autologous-based platform that allows for improved manufacturing speed and quality as well as improved T-cell fitness. TruUCAR is an allogeneic, off-the-shelf-based platform. Here, CRISPR-Cas9 is used to knock out the T cell receptor (TCR) and specific tumour antigens in allogeneic CAR-T products. One TruUCAR-based programme has so far entered a clinical trial.
