Cantargia AB was founded in 2009-2010 with the aim of refining a discovery by Professor Thoas Fioretos and Doctor Marcus Järås of Lund University. Their research showed that leukemic stem cells express a protein on their surface – IL1RAP – that is not expressed to as great a degree on normal stem cells. Further research demonstrated that this protein is also found on cancer cells from a large number of solid tumor types.
