16:14 EST 20th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Agensys, Inc. is developing a pipeline of therapeutic fully human monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to treat solid tumor cancers based on its own proprietary targets. The Company has discovered and validated a rich portfolio of novel, clinically relevant cancer targets to 14 different cancer types that have been carefully selected to enable development of new effective therapeutics with fewer and less severe side effects. All of Agensys' cancer targets must meet the following criteria: (1) a novel molecule and/or a novel utility in cancer; (2) expression in a significant percentage of patients' specimens; (3) limited expression in normal vital tissues; and (4) structural and functional features suitable for therapeutic intervention. The Company is generating fully human antibodies to multiple targets from its portfolio, including those directed to prostate, kidney, bladder, colon, lung, ovary and pancreatic cancers. The Company's portfolio also contains multiple validated targets for small molecule and vaccine products that it intends to develop through partnerships with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
