OFERTA DE TREBALL A AHEAD THERAPEUTICS: "Reprogramming the immune system to halt autoimmunity"
Ahead Therapeutics has developed an innovative solution based on the use of PS-liposomes containing autoantigens. Through a biomimetic process, these liposomes can induce antigen specific immune tolerance, thereby interrupting the autoimmune reaction.
Simply by replacing the encapsulated autoantigen, Ahead’s technology can address the treatment of different autoimmune diseases: Type 1 Diabetes; Multiple Sclerosis; and Celiac Diseases, among others.
