The Antibody Opportunity

Monoclonal Antibody (mAb)

Therapeutic mAbs

Monoclonal antibodies are reshaping the industry


Affibody® Molecules – Next Generation Antibody

  • Small size (1/25th the size of a mAb)
  • High selectivity and affinity (high potency)
  • Rapid and reversibly folding (extreme stability)
  • Flexible low cost production (peptide synthesis or recombinant production)
  • Flexible engineering and formatting (modified properties and formats)

Affibody® molecule6 kDa

Monoclonal Antibody (mAb)150 kDa

A fraction of the size packed with the same power

anti her2 affibody molecule imaging opportunity
Anti-HER2 Affibody® Molecule Imaging Opportunity

Breast Cancer

  • Exploratory clinical data available
  • Phase I dose finding study approved

Bladder Cancer Imaging

  • Exploratory application approved

Safety and Immunology

  • Repeated dose tox demonstrated the molecule to be safe and well tolerated
  • Non-immunogenic after repeated dosing in rat

Clinical Development Plan

  • Phase I dose finding study (27 patients, 6 months)
  • Phase III confirmatory study (150-200 patients, 9 months)

Breast Cancer patient with brain metastasis

Short time to market – limited number of patients

her2 imaging novel diagnostic applications






HER2 Imaging – Novel Diagnostic Applications

Global HER2 status (2 h p.i., PET/CT)

Monitoring therapy response (4 h p.i., SPECT)

Orlova, A., et al. (2007) Cancer Research, 67: 2178-86.

Use cases demonstrated not possible with current standard (biopsy)

trends in oncology mab therapy
Trends in Oncology mAb Therapy
  • Antibody-drug conjugation (payloads)
    • T-DM1 (Herceptin + payload), Ph III, Genentech/ImmunoGen
      • Genentech plans to file 1-2 INDs on payload drugs annually
    • SGN-35 (CD30 + payload), Ph III, Seattle Genetics
  • Focus on effector functions
    • e.g. Xencor, Macrogenics, Glycart, Micromet – BiTE, Merrimack – HER2/HER3

The Affibody® molecule is an optimal payload carrier

the value of antibody mimetics example of deals
The Value of Antibody Mimetics – Example of Deals

Amgen acquired Avidia for $290m (2006)

  • Amgen bought Avidia to get access to a small scaffold protein, based on only early preclinical data.

Pfizer bought BioRexis for an unknown amount (2006)

  • The acquisition gave Pfizer proprietary rights to transferin as a scaffold, and for halflife extension of peptides. Only preclinical data were available at the time of purchase.

GSK acquired Domantis for $455m (2006)

  • Domantis was a domain antibody scaffold company. Only preclinical data were available at the time of purchase.
