Ab Initio Biotherapeutics, Inc. Announces Strategic Collaboration with Pfizer to Discover GPCR Activating Antibodies

Ab Initio Biotherapeutics, Inc. announced a collaborative research and license agreement with Pfizer Inc. that aims to discover novel therapeutic antibodies against an undisclosed target in the G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily. GPCRs comprise the larger class of therapeutic drug targets, with key regulatory roles in physiological processes ranging from cardiovascular biology to metabolic health. Ab Initio will use its proprietary GPCR antibody discovery platform to help engineer antibodies that activate the targeted GPCR. Pfizer has exclusive worldwide rights to develop and commercialize any GPCR activator (agonist) antibodies against this target that may result from the collaboration. Ab Initio will receive an upfront fee and research support, and is eligible to receive milestone payments and tiered royalties on future sales of any products that may result from this collaboration. Further terms of the deal are not disclosed. In addition, Pfizer will make a strategic investment in Ab Initio alongside the Company’s existing investors.
