Xenomouse Case Study Analysis – Doing What Matters

Abgenix is a biopharmaceutical company that develops and intends to commercialize antibody therapies for the treatment of such conditions as transplant-related diseases, inflammatory and autoimmune abhenix, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, and cancer. I agree to the Terms and Privacy Statement. Recent work published by Abgenix scientists showed that a humanized antibody produced in Xenomouse against human epidermal growth factor receptor prevented completely the formation of human epidermoid carcinoma A xenografts in athymic mice, and the eradication of established tumors without chemotherapy reference 1.

XenoMouse technology offers the following advantages: Abgenix will, however, remain significantly involved through all stages, which strategically could be important, xenoomouse it gives the potential for acquiring the complementary assets needed to perhaps single-handedly bring future products to market.

Importantly, these transgenic mice can generate antibodies to human antigens because the only human products expressed in the mice and therefore recognized as “self” are the antibodies themselves. Filoviruses, such as Ebola virus and Marburg virus, and poxviruses, including smallpox, pose a potential biological warfare or bioterrorism threat. Please see Abgenix’s public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for information about risks that may affect Abgenix.

Breaking News Patients now living a median 6. Scott Greer, president and chief executive officer of Abgenix.


It produce antibodies with fully human protein sequences, reducing the possibility of human anti-mouse antibody response, observed in patients treated with monoclonal or chimeric antibodies It generates a diverse antibody response to essentially any disease target appropriate for antibody therapy It generates high affinity antibodies which do not require further engineering It enables efficient product development; and flexibility in choosing manufacturing processes.

Hence, rather than engineering individual antibody molecules against specific antigens, a time-consuming and technically difficult process, XenoMouse technology has the animal do all the work, using the intact host immune system to generate agenix repertoire of high affinity antibodies. In addition, Abgenix has multiple proprietary antibody product candidates under development internally, three of which are in human clinical trials for graft-versus-host disease, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer.
