Immuntep is global leader in the understanding and development of therapeutics that modulate Lymphocyte Activation Gene-3 or "LAG-3” which is a cell surface molecule that plays a vital role in regulating T cells. LAG-3 was discovered by our Chief Scientific Officer and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Frederic Triebel, putting Immutep at the forefront of immunotherapy drugs for cancer and autoimmune diseases.
Our objective is to harness and strengthen the power of the body’s own immune systems through therapeutic intervention for the benefit of patients’ health. This is how immunotherapy fights cancer and autoimmune disease.
We have other investments and partners and some of the previous ventures have included:
The year was 1990, and wholesome, tasty, ‘free from’ foods were practically nowhere to be found. After one too many fruitless searches, we decided we had to take matters into our own hands – and make tasty ‘free from’ food ourselves instead.
So we got to work and never looked back. From our headquarters in Sydney, we made it our mission to not only make delicious and healthy food, but to lead the ‘free from’ food movement in Australia. We helped to establish health sections in supermarkets and adopted the most stringent allergen testing practices in the country. Because why bother doing something if you’re not going to do it right…right?
CitroLife® is a unique range of organic and natural products for cleaning, sanitizing and preserving your modern way of living without sacrificing your health.
About 23 years ago, food technologist Ravi Narain made a breakthrough discovery that would change the future of modern living. With a desire to decrease the amount of chemicals used in food processing, Mr Narain took citrus pith and pulp and transformed it into a powerful anti-bacterial, anti-mould, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant product called CitroFresh®.
This all-natural and organic active ingredient made entirely from plant-based materials would become the foundation of CitroLife®, to be used as a natural preservative and sanitiser. In 2004, Mr Narain's CitroFresh® Disinfectant technology became the first certified organic disinfectant in the world. (Later renamed as CitroShield® Disinfectant). It has been trialled and tested in numerous Australian and International laboratories to achieve a number of outstanding and effective elimination results against bacteria, viruses, moulds and fungi resulting in numerous notable certifications and accreditations while remaining totally non-toxic.
