  • img

    Efficacy

    Kill tumor cells without the need for prior activation

  • img

    Accessibility

    Cryopreserved and Ready to Infusion product

    No time delay which is unacceptable for many patients with rapidly growing cancers

  • img

    Affordable

    Scales of production lowers treatment cost significantly

  • img

    Safety

    Unlike approved CAR-T therapy or T cell engagers require hospitalization and extended monitoring, NK cells are available in outpatient setting

  • img

    Flexible treatment for each individual patient

    NK cells can be combined with mAb or engager for multi-targeting approaches

    NK cells can be used in repeat dosing regimen at any given time during the course of treatment

CBNK (Cord blood-derived NK)

GC Cell CBNK(AB-101) is a non-engineered, cryopreserved [1]allogeneic off-the-shelf drug developed on outstanding cell expansion and manufacturing platform using GC Cell proprietary feeder system. The exclusive engineered feeder cell eHut78 enables optimal NK cell expansion and potent antitumor activity. [2]Our advanced technology provides mass production of AB-101 in a scale of up to 5,000 doses from a single cord blood unit maintaining high NK cell quality.

Gene Engineered-CBNK

GC Cell Gene-engineered NK cells that express chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) show enhanced targeting to the hematologic and solid tumors. The GC Cell proprietary CAR platform is optimized to maximize the therapeutic effects of NK cells. Our CAR platform utilizes CD28 and OX40L costimulatory molecules to amplify activating signals and is armored with secreting IL-15 cytokine to increase NK cell persistency. [3][4]
