Arming the Immune System to Kill Cancer

Our “off the shelf” stem cells deliver a viral payload that first kills cancer cells locally, and then supercharges the immune system to fight metastatic disease.

We are developing a new generation of targeted immunotherapies that  attack solid tumors, and then teach the immune system to hunt down cancer cells elsewhere in the body.

Where does the “Calidi” name come from?

The Calidi name is derived from the spanish “caliente” meaning heat, which signifies that Calidi’s cancer treatment transforms immunologically “cold” tumors, which the immune system is unaware of,  becoming “hot” following Calidi’s treatment. The immune system is thus engaged, and attacks the primary tumor and also distant metastases.
