AbCellera Biologics Inc. Key Developments

Abcellera Biologics Enters into Research Agreement with Teva Pharma

AbCellera Biologics Inc. entered into a research agreement with Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., a pharmaceutical company, to apply AbCellera Biologics proprietary monoclonal antibody (mAb) screening platform for the discovery of antibodies that modulate the function of an undisclosed membrane protein target elected by Teva Pharma. Under the terms of the agreement, AbCellera Biologics will receive an upfront payment and research support, as well as milestone and royalty payments based on Teva Pharma development and commercialization of antibodies generated under the agreement. Earlier on February 2, 2016, Teva Pharma entered into a research agreement with AbCellera Biologics to apply AbCellera Biologics single cell antibody platform for the discovery of rare monoclonal antibodies. This agreement enables AbCellera Biologics and Teva Pharma to generate lead antibody candidates against membrane targets using AbCellera Biologics antibody discovery platform.

AbCellera Biologics Inc. Enters into Collaborative Research Effort with Sanofi Pasteur

AbCellera Biologics Inc. has entered into a collaborative research effort with Sanofi Pasteur. The project will use AbCellera's single-cell screening platform to profile vaccine-specific human antibodies elicited by seasonal influenza vaccination and to generate large panels of human monoclonal antibodies with desired binding profiles to various influenza strains. Seasonal influenza affects millions of people every year, and results in 250,000 to 500,000 deaths annually. Although vaccination provides protection when matched to the circulating strains, there is a place for new and improved vaccines when the circulating viruses do not match. Understanding the critical determinants that drive broad and protective human immune responses will guide the research and development of next-generation influenza vaccines. AbCellera's microfluidic platform combines screening speed and throughput with unique capabilities for selecting antibodies with defined properties using a wide array of single-cell assays. This platform allows for in-depth screening of immune cells from human blood samples, and the rapid discovery and sequencing of large numbers of human monoclonal antibodies with desired binding properties across multiple antigens. The ability to rapidly annotate antibody sequences with functional data opens a new and important tool for vaccine research.

AbCellera Announces Multi-Target Research Collaboration with Pfizer

AbCellera Biologics Inc. announced a new therapeutic antibody discovery collaboration with Pfizer Inc. AbCellera will apply its proprietary monoclonal antibody (mAb) screening platform to attempt to discover function-modulating antibodies against undisclosed membrane protein targets. Under the terms of the agreement, AbCellera will receive an upfront payment and research support, and will be eligible to receive up to approximately $90 million in contingent milestone payments, as well as tiered mid-to-low single digit royalty payments based on Pfizer's development and commercialization of antibodies that may be generated under this collaboration. Further terms of the agreement are not disclosed.
