Continuing our cytokine series, we now switch horses from a creative new therapeutic utilising red blood cells that Rubius Therapeutics are pioneering to a very different technology involving synthetic amino acids, in what is known as a ‘Not Alpha’ IL–2 approach from Synthorx.
We have covered new developments in IL–2 based cytokines from Roche and Nektar previously, so what’s cool about the alternative early development that is THOR–707?
To find out, we conducted an expert interview with Synthorx’s Dr Laura Shawver and learned some fascinating details about their novel platform that is sending new molecules into the clinic in the very near future.

Aggressive lymphoma… the very phrase is enough to send chills down your spine!
In the past, much of the focus at previous American Society of Hematology (ASH) meetings in this area has focused on the myriad of chemotherapy regimens and dose/schedule optimisations that followed in trying to boost patient outcomes.
This year, I’m pleased to say that things have quite a different flavour with numerous new therapeutics and promising combinations in development.
Some of these are inevitably hypothesis testing, while others will be up-levelling to large randomised controlled multi-centre trials.
As part of our ongoing preview series, we take a look at the different categories to watch out for beyond chemotherapy. These include monoclonal antibodies, antibody drug conjugates, targeted therapies and yes, even immunotherapies.
