Collaboration to explore potential of creating next-generation antibody-drug conjugates with Biosion’s SynTracer® internalization platform and ImmunoGen’s proprietary linker-payload technology
NEWARK, Del., Dec. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Biosion USA, Inc. (Biosion), a global R&D biotechnology company, today announced an exploratory research collaboration to create antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for the treatment of cancer with ImmunoGen, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMGN), a leader in developing next generation ADCs. In the joint research effort, Biosion will leverage its proprietary SynTracer® high-throughput (HT) endocytosis platform to generate highly selective antibodies to targets allocated by each company and ImmunoGen will provide their proprietary linker-payload technology to create novel ADCs.
“We are excited about our new joint research effort with ImmunoGen, a world-renowned leader in ADCs,” said Hugh Davis, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer, and President of Biosion USA, Inc. “This collaboration will take advantage of the strengths of each company; ImmunoGen’s expertise in linkers and payloads combined with Biosion’s SynTracer® HT endocytosis platform with the goal of identifying novel treatments for solid tumor cancers.”
Biosion is a global, clinical-stage biotechnology company committed to developing antibody-based therapies to improve patient outcomes for the treatment of immune and oncologic diseases. Established in 2017, Biosion has built a pipeline of innovative biologics through its internally derived proprietary technologies including the H³ antibody discovery platform, SynTracer® high-throughput endocytosis platform, and Flexibody™ bispecific platform. Biosion’s lead asset, BSI-045B (anti-TSLP mAb), is currently in Phase 2 for severe asthma and entering Phase 2 for atopic dermatitis. Biosion and partners have plans to progress additional immune-oncology biologics and antibody drug conjugates into clinical trials for oncology indications over the next year. Biosion has operations in the US, Australia, and China.
