This proprietary virally-mediated human gene-editing technology enables any endogenous gene in a human cell-line to be altered quickly, reliably and without introducing unwanted and confounding genotypes and/or phenotypes. X-MAN cell lines accurately model the disease-causing mutations observed in cancer patients and are being used by academic and industry leaders to identify the effect of individual mutations on drug activity, patient responsiveness and resistance, and to successfully predict which patient sub-groups will respond to currently-available and future drug treatments. The findings from the company’s scientific founders and advisors are defining how targeted colorectal cancer drugs are developed and prescribed.
