GlyTR is developing an entirely new class of antibody-independent immunotherapeutics.

Based in Irvine, Calif., GlyTR Therapeutics is developing a novel immunotherapy platform technology that uniquely targets highly diverse cancer types, ranging from breast cancer to leukemia.  GlyTR technology can overcome many of the shortcomings of current immunotherapies by binding to never-before targeted tumor associated carbohydrate antigens (targets) that are common to many cancer types.  

GlyTR Therapeutics is based on research that has come out of UC Irvine’s Research Lab. Professor and Inventor Dr. Michael Demetriou and Dr. Raymond Zhou are the scientists and founders of GlyTR Therapeutics. Their hard work and research over many years have culminated in a unique method to kill cancer cells across all types of cancers.
