Unite the Power of Nanotechnology and Immunity for the Fight to Cancer and COVID-19

By developing novel combination immunotherapies utilizing our potent anti-tumor T cell activating nano-immunotherapy “T-ignite”, we challenge conquest of intractable solid cancer, especially “cold tumor”, where conventional therapies are not effective for. The same technology is being used for the development of a next generation SARS-CoV-2 nanoparticle vaccine.

January 14, 2021 United Immunity and Xyphos, an Astellas company, entered into a joint research agreement to discover next gen nano-immunotherapies.
January 4, 2021 Japan AMED decided to provide the company an R&D grant ($3M) for our new program to develop a new T-ignite product for the treatment of advanced solid cancers.
October 26, 2020 A joint team of United Immunity, Kyoto University, and Nagasaki University published an article reporting a new animal model for the evaluation of immunogenicity of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.
July 31, 2020 Japan AMED decided to provide the company an R&D grant ($3M) for our new program to develop a next gen SARS-CoV-2 nanoparticle vaccine.
June 7, 2019 United Immunity, Co. Ltd. increased its capital through third-party allocation of new shares from Mitsubishi UFJ Capital, Co., Ltd. and Axil Capital Partners LLP to accelerate its research and development activity.
January 11, 2019 A research article describing the treatment of immune-resistant cold tumors using T-ignite technology was recently published online on the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
