Antitope Limited Enters into an Agreement with Apitope
May 19 15
Antitope Limited has entered into an agreement with Apitope Under the agreement, Antitope will investigate and measure the immunological status of haemophilia A patients after treatment. Apitope's patented discovery platform enables selection of potential disease-modifying peptide therapies for the autoimmune disease of interest. It has a pipeline of compounds in development including ATX-F8-117, which has been designed to induce immune tolerance to blood coagulation factor VIII in haemophilia A patients.
Haemophilia A is caused by a deficiency in blood coagulation factor VIII and is treated with replacement factor VIII protein. About 30% of haemophilia A patients develop neutralising antibodies to factor VIII which inhibits its activity and thus renders treatment less effective. Such patients are at risk of serious and life-threatening bleeding.

Antitope, INSERM and Baylor Institute to Collaborate to Produce Manufacturing Cell Lines for Two Novel Vaccines for HIV
Jan 13 15
Antitope Limited announced that it has extended its relationship with INSERM, ANRS and the Baylor Institute for Immunology Research. INSERM-ANRS and the BIIR have developed innovative approaches for HIV vaccines targeting HIV antigens to dendritic cells (DC) using monoclonal antibodies fused to HIV antigens. Extensive preclinical data has demonstrated the high immunogenicity of the candidate vaccines. Antitope will produce cell lines for GMP manufacture of two anti-CD40-HIV fusion proteins that INSERM-ANRS and BIIR are developing as potential therapeutic and prophylactic vaccines to treat HIV. The cell lines will be produced using Antitope’s Composite CHO™ technology. The antibody component of the fusion proteins has previously been humanized by Antitope using its Composite Human Antibody™ technology. Phase I and Phase II clinical trials will be conducted in France to test the immunogenicity and efficacy of these DC-targeting vaccines developed by INSERM-ANRS in partnership with the BIIR.
