Sutro Biopharma, Inc. develops best-in-class antibody-drug conjugate and multi-specific antibody-based therapeutics for cancer therapy. Sutro’s discovery and development efforts are driven by the Xpress CF™ platform, a biochemical synthesis system that enables rapid and systematic evaluation of protein structure-activity relationships. Sutro’s make-test cycle for hundreds of protein variants, including those incorporating non-natural amino acids, takes approximately two weeks, enabling broader and deeper biologics discovery and development efforts than can be accomplished with current cell-based expression technologies. Sutro’s technology platform allows production of proteins by bypassing the cell completely, cutting the pre-clinical development period by several months and can be done on any scale in just 8-10 hours.
Once identified, production of protein drug candidates can be rapidly and predictably scaled in Sutro’s cGMP manufacturing facility located in San Carlos, CA. Importantly, Xpress CF™ was nominated for best scientific innovation by World ADC in 2014 and Sutro Biopharma was named one of FierceBiotech’s Fierce 15 in 2014.
In addition to developing its own drug pipeline, Sutro Biopharma is collaborating with select pharmaceutical and biotech companies to discover and develop novel therapeutics. Last year, Sutro partnered with both Celgene and EMD Serono. This second partnership with Celgene is a multi-year collaboration focused on immuno-oncology and is valued at over $1 Billion. In the agreement, Celgene has an exclusive option to acquire Sutro. The deal with EMD Serono is a $300M+ collaboration to discover and develop novel antibody-drug conjugates for several targets in the field of oncology.
