Gene therapy is a technique that allows doctors to treat a disorder by inserting genes into patients’ cells to mitigate the underlying genetic drivers of disease. Human cells can be re-engineered to create highly-effective hunter/killers of invasive pathogens or cancer cells, or reprogramed to produce secretions that provide potent remedies to other disease conditions. There is strong evidence that this new therapeutic technology may unlock treatments and cures for formally untreatable or incurable human diseases, such as inherited genetic disorders, infectious diseases, and cancer.

Is the cure for cancer right around the corner?…

Advances in gene technologies and the resulting cures are accelerating exponentially while costs are coming down. If you were in Silicon Valley for the last 35 years, you’d recognize parallels to many previous high-tech “explosions” such as microcomputers, software and the Internet. “Moore’s Law” now applies to drug development and the next big startup could be up in a garage near you! Forget zeroes and ones… A-C-G-T is the new growth area of programming and real-world solutions. Viva la revolution!

Who We Are Replacement Photo

Who We Are:

American Gene Technologies International Inc. (AGT) is a private biotechnology company developing cures and treatments for Infectious diseases, cancers and monogenic disorders. AGT uniquely:

Creates immunotherapy for HIV disease with gene modified T cells
Activates innate T cell immunity capable of killing all tumor cells with its vector used in immuno-oncology
Treats PKU by bringing a functional gene into cells that express a dysfunctional gene due to mutation
Moves its lentivirus vectors and gene therapies into the clinic today for diseases of high importance

What We Do:

For over a decade, AGT has developed, tested and banked thousands of lentiviral vectors that can be adapted to the specific needs of new target diseases. AGT has developed gene therapy for diseases using this rapid gene delivery platform
