Crown Princess and Prince Daniel visited Idogen
On Thursday, 30 January, the Crown Princess and Prince Daniel visited Idogen to hear about our ground-breaking research into tolerogenic cell therapies. The company described the possibilities of reprogramming cells in seriously ill patients whose immune systems have become their enemy – a technique with the potential to help many people in the future. During their visit, there were some exciting discussions about a range of topics, including Idogen’s IDO T development project, which is being developed to improve the odds of success and to help patients before undergoing a living-donor transplant.
In Idogen’s development lab, the Crown Princess Couple were able to see how our researchers develop our tolerogenic cell therapy in real time – from the starting material, which is cells from patients, to the completed and reprogrammed tolerogenic dendritic cells. The aim of this development is that these reprogrammed cells will be returned to the patient, where they will help the body’s immune system to accept, for example, a new organ.
“It was an inspirational day for all us here at Idogen. The discussions were very rewarding and we appreciate the Crown Princess Couple’s involvement in Swedish research, innovation and business development,” says Anders Karlsson, CEO of Idogen.
