Report Sample Abstract

Various companies busy in the monoclonal antibodies industry are performing different preclinical trials in association with related agencies, universities and licensors.

Agensys Inc (Santa Monica, CA, US) used XenoMouse® technology to identify AGS-16M18, a fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibody that binds AGS-16 on the surface of kidney cancer cells: In vivo efficacy data were presented at the 99th annual AACR meeting in San Diego, April 2008, validating AGS-16 as a therapeutic target for kidney and liver cancers. Agensys’ website has not been updated since the company was acquired by Astellas Pharma in December 2007, but Agensys is still using its original name in presentations and press releases, and now describes itself as “an affiliate of Astellas”.

Alopexx Pharmaceuticals LLC (Cambridge, MA, US) has completed at least some of its preclinical trials of F598, a fully human monoclonal antibody developed by Dr Gerald Pier at Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which binds to a conserved bacterial surface polysaccharide known as poly-N-acetyl glucosamine (PNAG). In December 2009, Alopexx announced a collaboration with sanofi-aventis (Paris, France) for a “first-in-class human monoclonal antibody” against PNAG, currently in preclinical development, with potential utility in preventing/treating S. aureus, S. epidermidis, E. coli, Y. pestis (plague) and other serious infections.
