TapImmune Inc. ("TapImmune" "TPIM") is a biotechnology company specializing in the development of innovative therapeutics and vaccines in the areas of oncology and infectious disease. TPIM technologies are based on an understanding of the function of a protein "pump" within cells that is essential in the processing of tumor antigens, known as TAP. Transporters Associated with Antigen Processing (TAP) are transporters responsible for supplying tumor-associated antigens and viral antigens used in the assembly of MHC class I surface molecules. MHC class I molecules are required for the recognition and destruction of tumor cells and virus infected cells by the cellular arm of the immune system. A wide variety of metastatic cancers evade destruction by the immune system due to absent or insufficient amounts of TAP, making the tumors unrecognizable by the immune system.
TPIM's lead product, the TAP vaccine performs a key step in moving characteristic markers called antigens to the surfaces of cells allowing the subsequent recognition and killing of cancer cells by the immune system. Without TAP, there are no cancer markers, so the immune system fails to spot the rogue cells and the cancerous cells can grow undetected.
