Wacker Biotech Announces License Agreement with MedImmune
Oct 12 15
Wacker Biotech GmbH has announced a license agreement with MedImmune, a biologics R&D arm of AstraZeneca, for the use of its ESETEC 2.0 proprietary secretion technology in E.coli. This agreement now gives MedImmune the right to use WACKER's ESETEC 2.0 cell line exclusively for the production and commercialization of an antibody fragment (Fab), which will benefit MedImmune with improved productivity and a simplified purification process as compared to conventional E. coli processes. This agreement follows a feasibility study that the companies conducted, which demonstrated that WACKER's ESETEC2.0 technology was superior to existing technologies for the production of Fabs. Fabs are purpose-made constituents of human antibodies and represent a highly promising growth area for the pharmaceutical industry. The ESETEC 2.0 technology provided a high yield of correctly folded and biologically active Fab. The technology also exhibited enhanced productivity, which outperformed industrially optimized processes for mammalian cell cultures (CHO cells). Based on this successful study, both parties agreed to produce the Fab at one of Wacker's cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) facilities.
