Mechanism of action

CYNK-001 has the potential to inhibit viral infection by killing host cells through indirect immune responses. CYNK-001 expresses NKG2D and DNAM-1 receptors in addition to cytotoxicity receptors NKp30, NKp44, and NKp46. These receptors bind to the ligands and antigens expressed on infected cells, and initiate the release of perforin and granzyme B from the NK cell to induce cell death. In addition to being investigated for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, multiple myeloma, and glioblastoma multiforme, CYNK-001 is also being investigated for treating COVID-19.
