BioInvent International AB (OMXS: BINV) today announces that it has been granted a US patent for its antibody and concomitant target discovery technology F.I.R.S.T.™.
Traditional drug discovery methods involve the identification of drugs candidates that bind to known disease targets. The F.I.R.S.T.™ technology is a novel and unique discovery method, which allows for antibodies and disease targets to be identified simultaneously.
BioInvent has used F.I.R.S.T.™ successfully in several proprietary discovery projects and offers F.I.R.S.T.™ as well as traditional antibody discovery screening to commercial partners.
"With billions of binders available in the libraries and state-of-the-art in vitro and in vivo cancer and immunological assays, we can discover antibodies with the very best properties for onward development." Said Björn Frendeus, VP Preclinical Research at BioInvent.
