Our Cutting Edge
Technologies

Derived from Groundbreaking Research

Atara Biotherapeutics’ off-the-shelf, allogeneic T-cell immunotherapy platform allows for the manufacturing of a T-cell library in advance of patient need. Our off-the-shelf, allogeneic T-cell immunotherapy candidates utilize Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) T‑Cells from donors with healthy immune function, which are then selected and expanded to recognize diseased or cancer cells. These EBV T‑Cells are comprehensively-characterized and selected for each patient’s unique immune profile from an existing library and are rapidly available to ship to the site of patient care in approximately 3 days.

What Are T‑Cells?

T‑Cells are part of the immune system and help protect the body from infections and may help fight cancer.

Why Allogeneic T‑Cells

Why Allogeneic T‑Cells

Allogeneic T‑Cells are donated from healthy individuals and are then expanded to recognize diseased or cancer cells using our unique technology. The potential advantages of this approach include:

  • Atara’s library of allogeneic T‑Cells is available in advance of patient need
  • Atara aims to cover the majority of the population through a library of off-the-shelf allogeneic T cell immunotherapy candidates
  • Atara’s can deliver T‑Cells candidates to many patients in approximately 3 days

Science

Targeting Diseased Cells that Express Specific Antigens

The HLA proteins present antigen to T‑Cells. Through their T-cell receptors (TCR), T‑Cells recognize HLA proteins and the antigens on the surface of cells. This interaction (TCR-HLA-antigen) is known as HLA restriction. Once activated the T‑Cells can specifically attack diseased or cancer cells in an HLA-restricted manner.
