NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Argos Therapeutics announced today that it will collaborate with Personalis to study the mechanism of action of its investigational immuno-oncology drug rocapuldencel-T.

Rocapuldencel-T — formerly AGS-003 — is a personalized immunotherapy based on Argos' Arcelis platform, which uses RNA isolated from a patient sample to program autologous dendritic cells to target only disease-specific antigens. It is being tested in a number of clinical trials, including a Phase III study for metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
