We use our in-depth expertise in antibody biology to create and develop differentiated, next-generation antibody products for the treatment of cancer. Our research and innovation function consist of a strong antibody discovery engine connecting our innovative antibody platform technologies with our robust target and disease biology knowledge. This synergy continues throughout our fully integrated R&D organization where our creations enter clinical development.
We use our proprietary antibody technology platforms to create novel antibody-based therapeutics, our technologies include:
- DuoBody® platform to develop bispecific antibodies.
- HexaBody® technology to induce formation of hexamers (clusters of six). It is designed to increase the potency of antibodies while retaining their regular structure and specificity.
- DuoHexaBody® platform combines the dual targeting of Hexabody technology with increased potency of Hexabody technology to create bispecific antibodies with enhanced target-mediated hexamerization.
- HexElect® platform combines two co-dependently acting HexaBody molecules, to introduce selectivity while maximizing therapeutic potency.
To generate diverse libraries of high quality and functional antibodies, we also use or license other technologies including antibody-drug conjugates and mRNA platforms. Our research and development teams have established a streamlined process to coordinate the activities of product discovery, pre-clinical testing, manufacturing, clinical trial design and execution, and regulatory submissions across Genmab’s international operations.
