About Heat Biologics, Inc.
Heat Biologics is a biopharmaceutical company developing immunotherapies designed to activate a patient's immune system against cancer. We take a combination approach to our therapeutic treatments by incorporating immune system modulators and other drugs into our cancer-fighting therapies. This enables T cells to be activated and expanded so they can potentially zero in on cancer cells and destroy them. Our T Cell Activation Platform (TCAP) produces therapies from our ImPACT® and ComPACT™ systems derived from allogeneic cancer cell lines selected for a broad sampling of tumor proteins common amongst all cancers. We can also combine our TCAP system with existing T cell checkpoint inhibitors and co-stimulators in a single treatment. This offers the potential benefit of combination immunotherapy without the need for multiple, independent biologic products. We are currently enrolling patients in our Phase 2 clinical trial for non-small cell lung cancer, in combination with Bristol-Myers Squibb's nivolumab (Opdivo®). We also have numerous pre-clinical programs underway at various stages of development. For more information, please visit www.heatbio.com.
