Kymab Defends Patent Action in UK

Kymab announced that it has notified the English Court that it will defend the UK patent proceedings brought by Regeneron in respect of European patent EP1360287. Regeneron initiated these proceedings in September 2013. Kymab will defend the UK patent action on the grounds of non-infringement and invalidity of the patent. Earlier, in June 2013, Kymab opposed the equivalent Regeneron European patent in the European Patent Office. The opposition proceedings are pending.

Kymab Announces Kymouse Antibody Discovery Agreement with Novo Nordisk

Kymab announced an agreement in therapeutic antibody discovery. Novo Nordisk has been granted a non-exclusive licence to Kymab's proprietary Kymouse(TM) human antibody discovery platform to discover, develop and commercialise therapeutic monoclonal antibody drugs for human diseases. The licence provides Novo Nordisk with access to the Kymouse HK and Kymouse HL transgenic human antibody mouse strains, which can generate highly selective, potent, human antibody drug candidates. The Kymouse HL strain produces antibodies with human heavy and lambda light chains whereas Kymouse HK generates antibodies with human heavy and kappa light chains. By using these strains in combination, a diverse pool of human antibodies can be created with both classes of light chains fully represented.
