ONK Therapeutics develops next-generation natural killer (NK) cell-based therapies for the treatment of cancer. The company tries to deploy multiple different knock-outs of different genes using CRISPR-Cas9 in its chimeric antigen receptor NK (CAR-NK) products. While the company is still conducting pre-clinical studies, it has disclosed multiple different haematological and solid tumour types that it will initially target. The company has established a collaboration with Intellia Therapeutics, which gives ONK Therapeutics non-exclusive rights to the CRISPR-Cas9 system and lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery technologies.
