Patent application

 

Fusion Antibodies plc (AIM: FAB), a contract research organisation ("CRO") providing discovery, design, and optimisation services for therapeutic antibodies to the global healthcare market, announces that it has filed a patent application for a panel of antibodies that bind to an important target for cancer therapeutics. These antibodies have the potential to inhibit the pro-tumourigenic activity of their target in cancer, which is supported by pre-clinical data. The Company is exploring options to out-licence these antibodies to a clinical development company to progress them into Phase I clinical trials.

 

Dr Adrian Kinkaid, CEO of Fusion, commented: "We have a dedicated team of scientists who continue to work on antibody discovery and expression, and we remain confident in our ability to grow and create opportunities in this field. We look forward to being able to update the market further, whilst also growing our patent portfolio."
