We make healthy cells invisible to targeted therapies

Targeted therapies work by attacking cells that express particular proteins on their surface. Unfortunately, both diseased and healthy cells often express the same proteins, resulting in collateral damage to healthy cells.

At Vor, we engineer hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to lack a biologically redundant target protein, then transplant these cells into the patient.

These eHSCs give rise to generations of new healthy blood cells that are effectively invisible to targeted therapies. Diseased cells displaying the target protein and are then vulnerable to attack. This process potentially broadens the therapeutic window and improves the utility of complementary targeted therapies.

Vor Biopharma is thrilled to have been chosen as the 2019 Xconomy Cell Therapy Platform of the year. We are well-funded by 5AM Ventures and RA Capital, among others. Please visit our website at https://www.vorbiopharma.com/ for more information.
