Innate Pharma is a biopharma company developing therapeutic antibodies for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases.
Innate Pharma – therapeutic antibodies
Innate Pharma is a leader in immuno-oncology targeting innate immunity cells. Indeed, this company is specialized in the development of new monoclonal antibodies targeting receptors and pathways controlling the activation of innate immunity cells. Innate Pharma develops an innovative approach against cancer and inflammatory diseases: monoclonal antibodies specifically regulating the activity of some immune cells in order to facilitate or to slow down their activation. Innate Pharma has developed a new proprietary coupling technology to generate homogenous Antibody-Drug Conjugates (ADCs). Innate Pharma’s innovative coupling technology uses bacterial transglutaminase (BTG) enzyme to develop two types of antibodies: immunomodulating and cytotoxic antibodies. The two most advanced programs are immuno-modulating antibodies targeting receptors at the surface of immune cells to potentiate their activation. Innate Pharma’s technology also has potential in chronic inflammatory diseases. Furthermore, Innate Pharma has a large panel of molecular and cellular assays and in vivo models to assess the pharmacodynamics, pharmacotoxicology and efficacy of drug candidates.
