About Ambrx

Ambrx is transforming the science and performance of protein-based medicines. Ambrx's unique technology is based upon a fundamental advance in protein biosynthesis that enables the selective incorporation of non-native amino acids into therapeutic proteins with the objective of optimizing their pharmaceutical properties. This approach represents a new paradigm in protein engineering and permits the optimization of proteins in a manner analogous to that used to improve the properties of small molecule-based drugs and peptides. Ambrx's most advanced product candidate, ARX-201, is a patent-protected, long-acting human growth hormone. In preclinical studies, ARX-201 has demonstrated exceptional homogeneity, pharmacology and biophysical stability. The company expects to file an IND for ARX-201 in 2006 and owns all rights to the program. In addition, Ambrx is optimizing several other protein therapeutics representing large markets and significant unmet medical need.
