Kelonia Therapeutics to Participate in Upcoming Scientific Conferences

BOSTON, Mass., May 2, 2024Kelonia Therapeutics, Inc., a biotech company revolutionizing in vivo gene delivery, announced preclinical data from its lead in vivo CAR-T cell therapeutic candidate KLN-1010 in multiple myeloma that will be highlighted at two upcoming scientific conferences – the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) 27thAnnual Meeting, taking place on May 7-11, 2024, in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Protein Engineering Summit (PEGS) Boston Summit 2024, taking place on May 13-17, 2024, in Boston.

“Preclinical data continues to demonstrate exquisite T cell specificity and profound CAR T cell activity with low dose levels of our in vivo Gene Placement System (iGPS®),” said Kevin Friedman, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Kelonia. “Combining this platform with our proprietary, fully-human, and highly active BCMA CAR candidate creates a medicine with the potential to transform the treatment of multiple myeloma. With KLN-1010 poised to be the first in vivoCAR-T cell therapy for multiple myeloma, we aim to provide a potentially life-changing solution for patients that need it most. We’re excited to share our latest data at these upcoming conferences, as we continue to advance toward the clinic.”
