Arcturus Therapeutics Expands Platform with STARR Technology™
The STARR technology™ platform combines self-replicating RNA with LUNAR®, a leading nanoparticle delivery system, into a single solution for partners. STARR technology™ is delivered into the cell to generate a protective immune response or drive therapeutic protein expression to potentially prevent against or treat a variety of diseases. The self-replicating RNA-based therapeutic vaccine triggers rapid and immediate antigen expression within host cells and a stronger T-cell response. This combination is expected to provide longer-lasting RNA, lowering dose requirements compared to traditional RNA-based vaccines.
“We are pleased to add the STARR technology™ to our platform,” said Pad Chivukula, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Arcturus. “Our expertise in RNA design and manufacturing combined with our LUNAR® nanoparticle delivery system may provide a unique solution to companies developing human and animal health vaccines.”
