PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Open Monoclonal Technology, Inc. (OMT), a provider of human therapeutic antibody technologies, today announced an agreement whereby Pfizer Inc., a global pharmaceutical company, will use OMT’s OmniRat™ for antibody research and development. OmniRat™ is a platform technology that generates fully human antibodies with great specificity, affinity and manufacturability.

Furthermore, OmniRat™ enables developers to skip humanization of animal-derived antibodies or lead-optimization of display candidates.
