ImmunoGen Company Profile

16:43 EST 18th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

ImmunoGen, Inc. develops pharmaceuticals, primarily for the treatment of cancer. The Company's product candidates arecalled tumor-activated prodrugs ("TAPs") and are based on its proprietary immunoconjugate technology platform. Unlike conventional chemotherapeutic agents, TAPs are intended to deliver potent chemotherapy specifically to a tumor. Each TAP immunoconjugate comprises a small-molecule drug which has been chemically linked to a monoclonal antibody. The small-molecule drugs are highly potent cell-killing (cytotoxic) agents, while the monoclonal antibodies identify and bind to tumor cells. An important characteristic of TAPs is that they remain inactive and nontoxic until they bind to the surface of a tumor cell, after which their full cytotoxicity is restored.
