GI Cell sets new record in culturing highly active natural killer cells
GI Cell, a South Korean developer of immune cell therapy products, claimed to have set a new world record in culturing highly active natural killer cells with 200 liters. Natural killer (NK) cells are a type of white blood cell and are seen as a promising tool for use in adoptive immunotherapy because they efficiently attack cancer cells or cells infected with viruses or bacteria.
Because NK cells are the most powerful immune cells in the human body and are extremely safe due to not inducing immune rejection when other people's cells are transplanted, many companies are striving to develop NK cell therapy products in an off-the-shelf form.
GI Cell, affiliated with South Korea's bio-venture company GI Innovation, said that the culturing of 200 liters of NK cells has not been officially reported by any leading domestic and international NK cell therapy companies.
