SEATTLE, Sep 08, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Theraclone Sciences, Inc., a therapeutic antibody discovery and development company, today announced a $10.6 million extension to its Series B financing, bringing the total round to $41 million. Previous investors ARCH Venture Partners, Canaan Partners, MPM Capital, Healthcare Ventures, Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Amgen Ventures and Zenyaku Kogyo participated in the financing. Proceeds will help advance Theraclone's clinical programs and support ongoing discovery projects using Theraclone's I-STAR(TM) technology platform, which is designed for the rapid screening and identification of rare, potent and therapeutically-relevant human antibodies.

"The anticipated near-term initiation of Theraclone's first clinical trial and our discovery collaboration with Pfizer earlier this year are important milestones that demonstrate Theraclone's continued progress with our R&D pipeline and technology platform. The continued support from our investors represents both a vote of confidence and an ability to sustain our rapid pace of activity and progress," said Steven Gillis, Ph.D., Executive Chairman and acting CEO of Theraclone.
