Startup Showcase: Hookipa Pharma – Developing Revolutionary Immunotherapies for Infectious Diseases and Oncology

Hookipa Pharma is a clinical stage biotech company located in Vienna, Austria, that is developing next-generation immunotherapies for infectious diseases and oncology. The company aims to create best-in-class active immunization therapies using its novel proprietary arenavirus vector platforms. With its TheraT® and Vaxwave® platforms, Hookipa Pharma is paving the way for the future of immune-therapy.

Revolutionizing Active Immunization Therapy

Hookipa Pharma’s TheraT® and Vaxwave® platforms are designed to elicit high neutralizing antibody responses along with necessary levels of T cell responses. These two vector platforms are not impeded by vector-neutralizing antibodies, meaning they can be administered repeatedly to provide even greater immune protection. The level of specific T cells generated by TheraT® is unprecedented in the field and has the potential to transform active immune-therapy in cancers.

Promising Results in Clinical Trials

The company has completed the active phase of a Phase 1 trial of a Vaxwave®-based vaccine against cytomegalovirus (CMV), and the results have been promising. Hookipa Pharma is now finalizing clinical development plans for TheraT® in Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)-related head and neck cancers. The technology’s unique combination of both antibody and T cell responses offers a new approach to treating infectious diseases and cancers.
