Medarex Receives Milestone Payment From ImClone
News Jan 31, 2006
Medarex, Inc. has announced that it received a milestone payment from its licensing partner, ImClone Systems Incorporated, following the acceptance of an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a fully human IgG1 antibody for the treatment of cancer.
The antibody was developed using Medarex's UltiMAb® technology. Medarex may receive future milestone payments and royalties should this product candidate progress through clinical development and to the market.
"We believe that the advancement of the ImClone Systems' antibody into clinical trials further demonstrates the strength of Medarex's UltiMAb technology," said Donald L. Drakeman, President and CEO of Medarex.
"With the broadening use of our UltiMAb platform, we expect to see a continual movement of new product candidates into clinical trials that goes beyond the thirty candidates currently in clinical development by us and our partners."
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
