Phanes Therapeutics is an emerging leader in innovative drug discovery and development in immuno-oncology. The company has built a strong pipeline in immuno-oncology by leveraging its proprietary technology platforms: PACbody™, ATACCbody™, and SPECpair™. Currently it has three assets in the IND-enabling stage, including one best-in-class monoclonal antibody (mAb) program and two first-in-class bispecific antibody programs and expects to file 3 INDs in 2022. Its pipeline includes humanized mAbs and single-chain variable fragments (scFvs) against multiple tumor-specific antigens (TSAs) that are suitable for ADC and CAR-T applications, respectively.
The company’s bispecific antibody platform is PACbody™, a proprietary approach for constructing native IgG-like bispecific antibodies without using protein engineering so that the antibody molecules maintain native structures with superb CMC characteristics. The second technology platform the company is developing is ATACCbody™, a proprietary technology for targeting solid tumors using immuno-oncology molecules with minimal risk of cytokine release syndrome (CRS). The third technology platform the company developed is SPECpair™, which allows mAb-like manufacturability of bispecific antibodies with native IgG-like structures.
“We have signed two out-licensing deals in recent months and expect to file three INDs next year. These milestones represent a strong validation of our scientific strength and innovative approach,” said Ming Wang, PhD, MBA, 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 with highly unmet medical needs. We will continue to leverage partnerships with companies that have capabilities complementary to ours.”
