SQZ Biotechnologies

General Information


We are a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing transformative cell therapies for patients with cancer, infectious diseases and other serious conditions. We use our proprietary technology, Cell Squeeze, to physically squeeze cells through a microfluidic chip, temporarily opening the cell membrane and enabling biologic material of interest, or cargo, to diffuse into the cell. This technology allows us to create a broad pipeline of product candidates for different diseases.  Our goal is to use the SQZ approach to establish a new paradigm for cell therapies. 

Our lead product candidate, SQZ-PBMC-HPV, from our SQZ APC platform, is a targeted cancer vaccine that has been designed to generate antigen-specific CD8+ T cell (CD8, CD8 T cell) responses to attack HPV+ tumors. We believe there remains significant unmet need in HPV+ cancers, with over 630,000 new cases every year globally. We are evaluating SQZ-PBMC-HPV in a Phase 1 clinical trial as a monotherapy and in combination with other immuno-oncology agents for the treatment of HPV16+ advanced or metastatic solid tumors, including cervical, head-and-neck, anal, penile, vulvar and vaginal cancer.
