Cell4Cure appoints Professor Rolf Ljung as Clinical Advisor Hematology to support the initial clinical program


Solna, Sweden, 14 June 2024, Cell4Cure AB – a Swedish, private, cell therapy company world-leading in the field of dendritic cell-mediated tolerance – today announced that they have appointed Dr Rolf Ljung, Professor of Pediatrics at Lund University, Sweden as senior advisor for its first clinical program.

Cell4Cure AB appoints Professor Rolf Ljung, MD, PhD and Project Manager for the Pediatric Hematology Research Unit at Lund University as clinical advisor. The focus area for this research group is bleeding and coagulation disorders in children, in particular on clinical and genetic aspects of hemophilia. With his vast experience and expertise, professor Ljung will strategically support the implementation of the company’s first clinical program, Toler8, where the aim is to promote antigen-specific tolerance for FVIII in patients with hemophilia A having developed so called inhibitors, i.e. neutralizing antibodies, against FVIII. ItolDC-028 will be the first dendritic cell therapy, to be explored clinically from Cell4Cure’s technology platform. The technology platform in itself has several other potential uses beyond FVIII.

Christina Herder, CEO: “Professor Ljung has been an integral part in providing advice to us on the design of the Toler8 study which is now approved by EMA, the European Medicines Agency. His continued support in the program will be instrumental for a successful implementation. We are very grateful for his engagement.”

“The biggest clinical problem with hemophilia A is that about 30% develop inhibitors after treatment with factor VIII. We need a new strategy to solve this problem and Cell4Cure's concept is innovative and very interesting" comments Professor Rolf Ljung, Lund University.
