Introduction for patients and medical professionals

Immunocore is one of the world’s leading biotechnology companies, with a highly innovative immune-oncology platform technology called ImmTAC.

What is an ImmTAC molecule?

ImmTAC (Immune mobilising monoclonal TCRs Against Cancer) molecules are a new class of bi-specific biologic reagents that combine an affinity-enhanced T cell receptor (TCR)-based targeting system with an anti-CD3 (scFv) effector function to activate a highly potent and specific T cell response to recognise and destroy cancer cells.

What clinical trials are Immunocore running?

IMCgp100 is Immunocore’s first ImmTAC molecule in Phase IIa clinical trials currently for the treatment of late-stage metastatic melanoma. This reagent comprises an affinity-enhanced T cell receptor (TCR) that recognises an HLA-A2-restricted peptide from the melanoma-associated antigen gp100, fused to an anti-CD3 single chain antibody fragment (scFv).
