argenx creates and develops highly differentiated antibodies for the treatment of cancer and severe autoimmune diseases. We are building and advancing our proprietary product portfolio. We are also providing our expertise through strategic antibody discovery and development partnerships.
With our proprietary portfolio, argenx focuses on novel disease targets and designs first-in-class or best-in-class products with distinct safety and efficacy profiles. We aim to advance our proprietary antibody products to clinical proof of efficacy in niche indications, after which we will partner them with industry leaders to rapidly bring treatments to the patients who need them.
Today, argenx has two oncology programs in Phase Ib clinical trials (ARGX-110 & ARGX-111) and two severe autoimmunity programs (ARGX-113, Bird Rock Bio collaboration). Our product pipeline also contains several discovery and preclinical stage programs, including a novel cancer immunotherapy program (ARGX-115) which has been partnered with AbbVie, Inc. on April 20, 2016 under a Development and Exclusive License Option Agreement.
Through our strategic partnerships, argenx seeks to collaborate with leading pharma companies to combine their leadership in specific disease areas with our own cutting-edge antibody creation technologies and expertise.
