The FDA Clears Compugen’s and Bayer’s IND Application for Their Checkpoint Inhibitor Immunotherapy Product

Finally, we are hearing what we were constantly expecting to hear coming out of Compugen’s (CGEN) technological capability. Yesterday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared Bayer AG’s investigational new drug (IND) application for BAY 1905254, a first-in-class immuno- oncology therapeutic antibody targeting ILDR2. The target ILDR2 is a novel immune checkpoint protein discovered by Compugen through its predictive computational capabilities, which enable …
Illumina’s Contribution to Practicing Precision Medicine

Illumina’s Contribution to Practicing Precision Medicine

When we reiterated that Illumina (ILMN) is the engine of the biotechnology evolution we meant it. We have to add, though, that the evolution made possible by Illumina’s sequencers and next-generation sequencing (NGS) engine is tremendously improving research and medical practice.  Regarding medical practice, the most recent news announced a global strategic partnership between Illumina and Loxo Oncology (LOXO) to co-develop and commercialize a multi-gene panel for broad tumor …
CRISPR Therapeutics’ Worthwhile Deal

CRISPR Therapeutics’ Worthwhile Deal

CRISPR Therapeutics (CRSP) and Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center (MGHCC) have entered into a two-year research collaboration and license option agreement to develop Novel T cell therapies for cancer. As part of the collaboration, CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology will be utilized to improve upon current T cell therapies in development addressing unmet needs in both hematologic and solid tumors.  This improvement is expected to occur by combining the …
