WEXFORD, Pa., Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Coeptis Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: COEP), a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative cell therapy platforms for cancer, today announced that two members of its Scientific Advisory Board, Hans-Gustaf Ljunggren, M.D., Ph.D., and Evren Alici, M.D., Ph.D., are featured in the first episode of the Immuno Oncology Talks podcast titled, "Biology of Natural Killer (NK) Cells."

Coeptis' product portfolio is highlighted by a cell therapy technology (CD38-GEAR-NK) and an in vitro diagnostic (CD38-Diagnostic) targeting CD38-related cancers, which the company is co-developing with VyGen-Bio, Inc. and its scientific co-founder, Arnika Wagner, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Karolinska Institutet. CD38-GEAR-NK is a natural killer (NK) cell-based investigational therapeutic engineered to enable combination therapy with anti-CD38 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). CD38-Diagnostic is an investigational in vitro screening tool to potentially pre-determine which cancer patients are most likely to benefit from targeted anti-CD38 mAb therapies, either as monotherapy or in combination with CD38-GEAR-NK.

"The discovery and development of our CD38-GEAR-NK and CD38 Diagnostic platforms are a direct result of Professor Ljunggren, Dr. Alici, and Dr. Wagner, and the groundbreaking research they are leading at the Karolinska Institutet," said David Mehalick, President and CEO of Coeptis Therapeutics Holdings, Inc. "The impressive body of work that they have spearheaded serves to strengthen Coeptis' commitment to finding effective treatments for deadly cancers, and their service on our Scientific Advisory Board helps assure that our development programs will be on cutting edge of biotechnology innovation."

Professor Ljunggren, the former Dean of Research at Karolinska Institutet and founder of the Center for Infectious Medicine, Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital, and Dr. Alici, the Head of the Gene and Cell Therapy Group, Division of Hematology, Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital, have been instrumental in the discovery of the GEAR-NK and GEAR Diagnostics platforms. On the podcast, the pair discuss how NK cells function and what makes them so effective in treating cancers.

Drs. Ljunggren and Dr. Alici also serve as co-Managing Directors for NextGenNK, the international Competence Center for the development of next-generation NK cell-based cancer immunotherapies.  The Center is coordinated by Karolinska Institutet and collaborates with the Karolinska University Hospital and prominent national and international partners. The Center was launched in 2020 and is jointly funded by Karolinska Institutet, its industrial/corporate partners, and Vinnova, Sweden's innovation agency.
