IMP321 is a first-in-class immunopotentiator that stimulates antigen-presenting cells (APC), such as dendritic cells and monocytes, leading to markedly improved cytotoxic CD8 T cells responses against tumours in patients.
IMP321 can be used either as an immunopotentiator in therapeutic vaccines or alone at higher doses as a monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy.
In the past, drugs used in an attempt to treat chronic HBV infection included corticosteroids, Phyllanthus amarus a plant derivative used in ancient Indian medicine for centuries, and an “immunopotentiator” called levamisole, which was prescribed to stimulate the body’s immune response.
