WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Replimune Group Inc. (NASDAQ: REPL), a biotechnology company developing oncolytic immunotherapies derived from its Immulytic™ platform, today announced that Robert Coffin, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer and Director of Replimune, will present at the Leerink Partners Roundtable Series: Rare Disease & Oncology on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at 11:30 AM ET at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel in New York, NY.
Replimune Group Inc., headquartered in Woburn, MA, was founded in 2015 to develop the next generation of “oncolytic immunotherapies” for the treatment of cancer. Replimune is developing novel, proprietary therapeutics intended to improve the direct cancer-killing effects of selective virus replication and the potency of the immune response to the tumor antigens released. The Company’s Immulytic™ platform is designed to maximize systemic immune activation, in particular to tumor neoantigens, through robust viral mediated immunogenic tumor cell killing and the delivery of optimal combinations of immune-activating proteins to the tumor and draining lymph nodes. The approach is expected to be highly synergistic with immune checkpoint blockade and other approaches to cancer treatment. Replimune intends to progress these therapies rapidly through clinical development in combination with other immuno-oncology products with complementary mechanisms of action.
