General description
arGEN-X is a publically traded therapeutic antibody biotechnology company. We have a proprietary SIMPLE AntibodyTM discovery platform that allows us to discover high affinity, high diversity antibody sets covering essentially all epitopes of a given target. arGEN-X combines active immunisation of llamas with Fab phage display to induce and harvest conventional antibody output of the immune response. In addition to the antibody discovery platform arGEN-X has three Fc modulation technologies: PK enhancement through NHance; Abdeg technology for driving autoimmune antibodies into destruction and finally arGEN-X has a licence for the PotelligentTM technology which can significantly enhance antibody dependent cytotoxicity and tumour cell killing activity.
