Business Description

Industry: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:AJ81.Germany,
Agenus Inc formerly known as Antigenics Inc was incorporated in 1994. The Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a biopharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of immuno-oncology candidates, including checkpoint modulators, heat shock protein vaccines and adjuvants. It is focused on immunotherapeutic products based on core platform technologies with multiple product candidates advancing through the clinic, including several product candidates that have advanced into late-stage clinical trials through corporate partners. Its core technology portfolio consists of Heat Shock Protein Platform, and Saponin Platform. Within HSP Platform the Company is developing its Prophage Series cancer vaccines and Recombinant Series. In Prophage Series the Company has tested product candidates in Phase 3 clinical trials for the treatment of renal cell carcinoma, the common type of kidney cancer, and for metastatic melanoma, as well as in Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials. In addition, the Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program of the National Cancer Institute opened patient enrollment in 2013 for a 222-patient, multi-center, randomized Phase 2 trial of Prophage Series vaccine G-200 in combination with Avastin in patients with surgically resectable recurrent glioma. HerpV, a therapeutic vaccine candidate from the Recombinant Series which contains QS-21 Stimulon, has been tested in a Phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of genital herpes and is now in a Phase 2 trial. Within its Saponin Platform is QS-21 Stimulon adjuvant, or QS-21 Stimulon, which is used by licensees in numerous vaccines under development in trials, some as advanced as Phase 3, for a variety of diseases, including cancer, shingles, malaria, Alzheimer's disease, human immunodeficiency virus, and tuberculosis. The Company's business activities include product research and development, intellectual property prosecution, manufacturing, regulatory and clinical affairs, corporate finance and development activities, and support of its collaborations. The Company faces intense competition from pharmaceutical companies and specialized biotechnology companies that market products or that are engaged in the development of product candidates directed at cancer, infectious diseases and degenerative disorders. Several of these companies have products that utilize similar technologies and patient-specific medicine techniques. The Company is also subject to regulation under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and other current and potential future federal, state, or local regulations.
