The company’s bispecific antibody platform is PACbody™, a proprietary approach for constructing bispecific antibodies without using protein engineering so that the antibody molecules maintain native structures with superb CMC characteristics. A second technology platform the company is developing is ATACC®, a proprietary technology for targeting solid tumors using immuno-oncology molecules with minimal risk of cytokine release syndrome (CRS). Its pipeline includes humanized single-chain variable fragments (scFv) against multiple tumor-specific antigens (TSAs) that are suitable for CAR-T applications.
“We have signed two out-licensing deals in recent months, which is a strong validation of our scientific strength and innovative approach,” said Ming Wang, CEO of Phanes Therapeutics. “At Phanes, our mission is to become a major source of innovation in the biopharma industry. We are fully committed to delivering robust therapies to patients, but we can’t do it alone. We will continue to leverage partnerships with companies that have capabilities complementary to ours.”
