Watch CYT-6091 in Action

We injected CYT-6091, CytImmune’s 1st generation nanomedicine, into a mouse with a tumor. We also injected a protein called albumin, to which a florescent dye was attached. This allowed us to track the albumin as it moved through blood vessels of the mouse.

The albumin remains inside healthy tissue blood vessels, but easily passes through tumor blood vessels because CYT-6091 has destroyed the epithelial cells that make up the blood vessel walls.
