Rubius Therapeutics developed our proprietary RED PLATFORM® to generate red blood cells and genetically engineer them into a new class of cellular medicines, called Red Cell Therapeutics™ (RCTs). Our RED PLATFORM harnesses both the unique properties of red blood cells and the creative potential of genetic engineering to deliver on the promise of cellular therapy and transform how diseases are treated.
Red Cell Therapeutics are engineered to express biotherapeutic proteins within or on their cell surface to create highly selective, potent and allogeneic cellular medicines aimed at treating a range of diseases. They can potentially be used to kill tumors in cancer and regulate the immune system for the treatment of autoimmune diseases.
Rubius Therapeutics is currently enrolling patients with advanced solid tumors in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial of RTX-240 and plans to submit an Investigational New Drug application for RTX-321 by the end of 2020.
