AbCellera, Everest Medicines Forge Multi-Target Collaboration to Advance New Antibody Therapies
22 September 2021 - - Canada-based technology company AbCellera (NASDAQ: ABCL) and China-based biopharmaceutical company Everest Medicines Ltd. (HKEX 1952.HK) have entered into a multi-year collaboration and license agreement to discover therapeutic antibodies for up to 10 targets selected by Everest, the companies said.

The partnership will help to expand Everest's portfolio of novel medicines across multiple indications, with the initial programs focusing on targets in oncology.

By partnering with AbCellera, Everest will benefit from an operating system that supports many antibody modalities to unlock new target classes and open new disease areas to therapeutic access.

The collaboration will leverage the full breadth of AbCellera's technology stack, including sourcing fully humanized antibodies from the Trianni Mouse, sourcing single domain antibodies from camelids, and combining any two antibodies to create native bispecifics using the OrthoMab protein engineering platform.

Under the terms of the agreement, Everest will have the rights to develop and commercialize antibodies resulting from the collaboration.

AbCellera will receive research payments and is eligible to receive from Everest downstream clinical and commercial milestone payments and royalties on net sales of products.
