ProBioGen, Pionyr starts another Immuno-oncology project

10 July 2018 | News

Under the terms of the agreement, ProBioGen will perform process development and GMP manufacturing on a second antibody from the Pionyr pipeline using their high performance CHO.RiGHT® expression platform.

ProBioGen AG, a premier service and technology provider for complex therapeutic glycoproteins, and Pionyr Immunotherapeutics, an immuno-oncology company which develops next generation antibody-based therapeutics that target the tumor microenvironment, announced a second service and license agreement to develop novel antibody therapeutics.

Under the terms of the agreement, ProBioGen will perform process development and GMP manufacturing on a second antibody from the Pionyr pipeline using their high performance CHO.RiGHT® expression platform. Parallel cell line development and analysis will allow for optimal cell line selection while compressing the development timeline, enabling a rapid advance to clinical trials.

“We developed a strong collaboration with Pionyr Immunotherapeutics on their initial antibody candidate, and we are enthusiastic about advancing a second antibody candidate into development. We consider Pionyr’s Myeloid Tuning™ approach to be ideally suited to target solid tumors and look forward to contributing to multiple programs with our CHO.RiGHT® development and manufacturing platform. We have established a seamless team working across the two companies and are very pleased to expand our collaboration”, said Dr René Brecht, VP Process Science and Manufacturing.
