Immunomedics is a New Jersey-based biopharmaceutical company primarily focused
on the development of monoclonal antibody-based products for the targeted
treatment of cancer, autoimmune and other serious diseases. We have developed
a number of advanced proprietary technologies that allow us to create
humanized antibodies that can be used either alone in unlabeled or "naked"
form, or conjugated with radioactive isotopes, chemotherapeutics, cytokines or
toxins, in each case to create highly targeted agents. Using these
technologies, we have built a pipeline of therapeutic product candidates that
utilize several different mechanisms of action.We also have a majority
ownership in IBC Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which is developing a novel
DOCK-AND-LOCK™ (DNL™) method with us for making fusion proteins and
multifunctional antibodies, and a new method of delivering imaging and
therapeutic agents selectively to disease, especially different solid cancers
(colorectal, lung, pancreas, etc.), by proprietary, antibody-based,
pretargeting methods. We believe that our portfolio of intellectual property,
which includes approximately 218 active patents in the United States and more
than 400 foreign patents, protects our product candidates and
