Kiyatec to present two posters highlighting the company’s work in ex vivo immuno-oncology at the 2023 AACR Annual Meeting April 14-19, in Orlando, FL

GREENVILLE, S.C.– Kiyatec, the leader in clinically correlated, published functional precision oncology technology, today announced that two abstracts were accepted for poster presentations at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting to be held in Orlando, Florida from April 14 – 19, 2023.

Kiyatec’s clinical and pre-clinical technology platforms, 3D Predict™ and KIYA-PREDICT™, respectively, are leading the functional precision oncology space with published evidence of predictive response correlated to clinical outcomes. The two abstracts accepted for presentation at the conference highlight the companies work in ex vivo immune-oncology applications for pre-clinical drug development, including multiple mechanisms of action, utilization of ex vivo PDX, and development of advanced organoid technology. The ex vivo PDX work features an ongoing collaboration with investigators from XenoSTART.

“The work being presented highlights the application of Kiyatec’s technologies for the development and testing of multiple types of immunotherapies,” said Tessa DesRochers, Kiyatec’s Chief Scientific Officer. “Our technology platforms allow for testing of I/O agents on primary patient tissue and ex vivo PDX tissue, providing expanded, more relevant avenues for drug development in immuno-oncology.”

Session titles and information for the abstracts are listed below and are also available on the AACR online itinerary planner. Kiyatec will exhibit it’s preclinical service offerings at AACR at Booth #419.
