FairJourney Biologics Enters Antibody Discovery Collaboration with Argenx
13 April 2021 - - Portugal-based VHH fully human antibodies specialists FairJourney Biologics S.A and IONTAS Ltd. Have forged a collaboration with global immunology company argenx to harness IONTAS' proprietary mammalian display technology, the companies said.

The goal of the collaboration is to explore diverse panels of novel antibody candidates, with the potential to advance select candidates into the argenx discovery pipeline.

Under the terms of the agreement, FJB and IONTAS will provide argenx with access to IONTAS' novel mammalian display technology, which can generate abundant therapeutic antibody leads, selecting for key attributes that may address the novel targets or pathways that argenx is exploring.

The agreement will also provide a dedicated full-time FJB/IONTAS team assigned to the project.

FJB/IONTAS and argenx have highly complementary capabilities for identification of potential next-generation antibody candidates, including argenx's pipeline of investigational immunology therapies aimed at improving the lives of people living with severe autoimmune diseases and cancer.

Through its Immunology Innovation Program, argenx collaborates with leading researchers to translate immunology breakthroughs in disease biology into differentiated therapeutic antibodies.
