Bullet Bio's BB-001 product trains the immune system to target a unique marker present on all B cells, the idiotype protein (commonly known as “Id”). By triggering an immune response directed towards the particular Id that is on an individual patient’s cancerous B cells, the patient’s immune system can eliminate these cells as threats.
