Dec 26, 2019, 13:10 /Comserve / -- The company announced that the second target has been selected by Pfizer under their research partnership and license agreement which has been further extended by six months
BioInvent International AB (OMXS: BINV) announced that it is increasing the term for cancer immunotherapy research with Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) along with their license agreement by six months as the latter has selected the second target for the research. The agreement between BioInvent and Pfizer was for the development of antibodies that target tumor-associated myeloid cells. BioInvent’s registered F.I.R.S.TTM drug delivery platform is used for discovering these myeloid cells. Both the companies entered into this agreement in December 2016 and have been working together since then for the identification and characterization of targets and various other antibodies that bind to those targets.
According to a statement by the CEO of BioInvent, Martin Welschof, the company’s high quality n-CoDeR® library for antibodies helps in the identification of targets, providing a patient-centric approach that leads to the discovery of new human bodies and interesting targets. The extension of this agreement by six months would provide the companies with extra time to select more targets along with their corresponding antibodies.
