NEW YORK and SYDNEY, Feb. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- EnGeneIC Limited, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company advancing its proprietary EDV™ nanocell platform for targeted cyto-immunotherapy in cancer, today announced that the Company was featured in the publication InsightsCare as one of the 10 most innovative healthcare nanotech companies to watch. The December 2019 Issue (Vol 12) describes the convergence of nanotechnology and medicine and shines a spotlight on pioneering companies using nanotech to drive healthcare innovations.
EnGeneIC was selected based on the company's development of its globally unique EDVTM nanocell, which can carry a payload directly to cancer cells while at the same time promoting an anti-tumour immune response.
