Anthrocell Therapeutics (ACT)
Our Anthrocell Therapeutics business unit is leveraging the ACX™ platform to develop a set of new-generation monoclonal antibody drugs.
With several leading anti-cancer biopharmaceutical drugs on the market no longer protected by patents, several industry players are moving to bring to market copies of these drugs. Such copies, designated as “biosimilars," aim to replicate the clinical performance of the original drug … but at a lower cost.
Anthrocell Therapeutics (ACT) is taking a different approach. Identifying drugs whose clinical performance was particularly compromised by the presence of non-human post translational modifications (including glycosylation), ACT is working to develop ACX™ based versions of these drugs. These improved (“bio-better") drugs would work with the patient’s immune system to deliver superior treatment outcomes.
