Established in July 2008 with a research base in Oxford, UK and a clinical base in Philadelphia, US, Adaptimmune is focused on the use of T cell therapy to treat cancer and infectious disease.  It aims to utilise the body’s own machinery – the T cell – to target and destroy cancerous or infected cells by using engineered, increased affinity T cell receptor (TCRs) as a means of strengthening natural patient T cell responses.  Adaptimmune undertakes all of its own research and development using proprietary T cell receptor engineering technology co-developed with its sister company Immunocore Ltd (formerly Avidex/MediGene) and exclusively licensed for T cell therapy.  Backed by private investors, Adaptimmune is now in the clinic in the US, in HIV as well as multiple cancer indications with its engineered TCR to the NY-ESO-1/LAGE-1 cancer testis antigen.

Adaptimmune’s Mission Statement

Adaptimmune’s mission is to develop disruptive therapy for serious disease using engineered T cells. The Company’s core technology is the development of affinity-enhanced T cell receptors (TCR) for use in adoptive T cell therapy.

The Adaptimmune product is a T cell expressing a modified TCR to recognize a tumour antigen (epitope) associated with a HLA molecule.

Oxford Immunotec



Oxford Immunotec is a medical diagnostics company developing novel new tests for various diseases based on its innovative, patented T cell measurement technology.  The company was founded in 2002 based on world-leading research at the University of Oxford.  The European headquarters are located in Abingdon, UK and the North American headquarters are located in Marlborough, MA USA.

T-Cell Xtend is an antibody complex directed against specific cell surface antigens
on human blood cells
• T-Cell Xtend cross-links selected white cells, that may interfere with ELISPOT
assays, with red blood cells
• This cross-linking increases the density of selected cells so that they form a pellet
when applied to a density gradient

The use of T-Cell Xtend allows the T-SPOT®.TB assay to be performed on blood samples up to 32 hours after venepuncture without any change in accuracy of the test.
