Under the collaboration with SAMSUNG MEDICAL CENTER, PharmAbcine has more than 300 patients derived cancer stem cell libraries and its animal model system for evaluating internal pipeline development.
TTAC-0001(Tanibirumab): anti-KDR neutralizing fully human IgG with unique cross species cross reactivity has completed its Phase IIa recurrent GBM trial in Australia in August 2017. Promising molecule to combine with immune checkpoint blockade is open for out-licensing, co-development and combination clinical trials.
PMC-001(DIG-KT): next generation bispecific antibody neutralizing both VEGF-KDR and Angiopoietin-TIE2 pathways is superior to bevacizumab and Tanibirumab in preliminary studies. It also overcomes the Avastin® resistant brain tumor growth. Both PMC-002 and PMC-002R are different scaffolds neutralizing same targets like PMC-001.
PMC-201: next generation bispecific antibody neutralizing both VEGF-KDR and Notch-DLL4 pathways overcomes anti-cancer drug resistant tumor growth.
PMC-005BL: Anti-EGFRviii truly specific fully human IgG with internalization property is perfect for ADC, CAR-T and CAR-NK purpose and is open for co-development or out-licensing.
PMC-309a-z: anti-VISTA fully human antibodies collection as either agonistic or antagonistic. Antagonistic antibody performed synergy effects in combination with other immuno-oncology drug.
"3G-System" platform provides high performing production cell lines and we do have both
PMC-901: bevacizumab biosimilar cell line with 3g/L productivity.
PMC-902: aflibercept biosimilar cell line with > 3g/L productivity.
