  • ENB is developing a product to be used in combination with PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapies. These immunotherapies are highly effective, but only in 15-20% of patients due to the lack of PD-1/PD-L1 expression by the tumor. ENB's lead product restores TIL (tumor infiltrating lymphocytes) infiltration into tumors, promoting expression of these receptors, and transforming the tumor to be receptive to PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapies.
