IMU is partnering to unlock the potential of the immune system and advance immune medicines
The right patient for the right drug
Immune medicine is revolutionising cancer treatment but only works in ~20% of patients. This is due to the huge variation in immune competence across patient groups. IMU can stratify patients by systemic immune signatures to enhance our understanding of which patients will respond to treatment, how patients can be better primed before treatment and to guide the better design of combination therapies.
Non-invasive, frequent patient analysis
The IMU platform requires only 2ml of fresh or cryopreserved blood samples. This allows for regular, cost-effective monitoring of patients’ immune systems for signatures of treatment response, immune reconstitution after lymphodepletion, irTOX, disease progression or relapse. The low material requirements and real time data analysis allow IMU to fit seamlessly into clinical workflows.
Cell therapy production
Donor stratification by immune signatures
Immune cells do not exist in isolation in vivo; rather, the immune environment from which they derive can shed light on how effective the cells will be in vitro. IMU can stratify cell therapy donors by systemic immune analysis that permits the identification of specific signatures correlating with successful expansion and functional endpoints.
How we do it
The science behind
In-house sample processing and data generation
We aim to empower people to live healthier lives and to change the phase of preventive medicine. We determine on a cell by cell basis the level of activation and exhaustion and ultimately how well equiped they are to function properly.
Powered by healthy immune data and research collaborators
We have built a massive immune database that allows us to account for the immune variation. This growing database is able to identify nuanced immune signatures relating to disease, treatment response, lifesytle and physiological factors.
Propietary analytics with machine learning
Innovative machine learning analytics powers real-time cell classification and contextualisation and understanding of individual immune profiles and signatures in relation to our ever growing immune health database.
IMU was founded on the belief that deep immunophenotyping at population level scale powered by machine learning could unlock the power of the immune system to help develop the next generation of immune medicines. We believe that in the future, no medical decision will be made without an understanding of a patient's immune system.
