Abgenix and CuraGen establish large-scale drug development alliance, companies to develop genomics-based human antibody drugs

d antibody drugs over a shorter period of time," stated Jonathan M. Rothberg, Ph.D., founder, chairman, and CEO of CuraGen Corporation. "Abgenix has the leading technology for developing fully human monoclonal antibody drugs. Through this partnership, both companies will leverage CuraGen's suite of genomics technologies and databases to systematically mine the genome to discover appropriate drug targets against which to use the XenoMouse technology for developing antibody drugs." Antibodies are naturally occurring proteins used by the body's immune system to combat many diseases. As therapeutic products, antibodies have several potential advantages over other therapies. The highly specific interaction between an antibody and its target may, for example, reduce unwanted side effects that may occur with other therapies. Fully human antibodies are desirable because they avoid the risk of rejection present with mouse or partial mouse antibodies. About Abgenix, Inc. Abgenix is a biopharmaceutical company that develops and intends to commercialize antibody therapeutic products for the treatment of a variety of disease conditions, including transplant-related diseases, inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, and cancer. Abgenix has developed XenoMouse technology, which it believes enables quick generation of high affinity, fully human antibody product candidates to essentially any disease target appropriate for antibody therapy. Abgenix has collaborative arrangements with multiple pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies involving its XenoMouse technology. In addition, Abgenix has multiple proprietary antibody product candidates that are under development internally, three of which are in human clinical trials.
