Antitope Announces EpiScreen Collaboration with PIKAMAB


7/19/2010 1:09:22 PM

19 July 2010 - Antitope Ltd. today announced a research collaboration with PIKAMAB, Inc. ("PIKAMAB") whereby Antitope will apply its proprietary EpiScreenTM technology to profile the immunogenicity of a series of biologics developed by PIKAMAB for the personalized treatment of cancers and autoimmune diseases. “We are delighted to be working with PIKAMAB who is an emerging leader in stratified medicine for the development of more efficacious biologics” said Dr Matthew Baker, Chief Scientific Officer and co-founder of Antitope, adding, "We are confident that the addition of EpiScreenTM to other preclinical assays will assist PIKAMAB in their selection of customized therapeutic antibodies with low immunogenicity potential."

”We are very pleased to collaborate with Antitope as its EpiscreenTM technology is the most validated to determine the immunogenicity profiles of therapeutic antibodies a priori,” commented Vijay Ramakrishnan, President and CEO of PIKAMAB.
