AnaptysBio is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on delivering innovative immunology therapeutics. We are developing immune cell modulators, including two checkpoint agonists in clinical-stage development, for autoimmune and inflammatory disease: rosnilimab, our anti-PD-1 agonist program, previously referred to as ANB030, which is currently in a Phase 2 clinical trial for the treatment of moderate-to-severe alopecia areata; and ANB032, our anti-BTLA agonist program. In addition, we are developing imsidolimab, our anti-IL-36R antibody, which is currently in a Phase 3 clinical trial for the treatment of generalized pustular psoriasis, or GPP. We also have additional preclinical programs and discovery research of potentially innovative immunology therapeutics, including ANB033, an anti-CD122 antagonist antibody for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. We have also developed multiple therapeutic antibodies in an immuno-oncology collaboration with GSK, including an anti-PD-1 antagonist antibody (JEMPERLI (dostarlimab-gxly)), an anti-TIM-3 antagonist antibody (cobolimab, GSK4069889) and an anti-LAG-3 antagonist antibody (GSK4074386). We currently generate revenue from milestones and royalties achieved under our immuno-oncology collaboration with GSK. Our antibody pipeline has been developed using our proprietary somatic hypermutation, or SHM platform, which uses in vitro SHM for antibody discovery and is designed to replicate key features of the human immune system to overcome the limitations of competing antibody discovery technologies.
Our most advanced wholly owned antibody programs, rosnilimab, ANB032 and imsidolimab, are designed to modulate therapeutic targets that are genetically associated with human inflammatory disorders.
Rosnilimab, our anti-PD-1 agonist antibody program, is designed to suppress aberrant T-cell driven inflammation by augmenting signaling through PD-1 or targeted depletion of PD-1+ T-cells.
Our anti-BTLA modulator antibody, known as ANB032, is broadly applicable to human inflammatory diseases associated with lymphoid and myeloid immune cell dysregulation.
Imsidolimab is our antibody that inhibits the interleukin-36 receptor for the treatment of inflammatory disease called generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP). We plan to outlicense imsidolimab prior to potential FDA approval.
Our anti-CD122 antagonist antibody program is known as ANB033.
Advancing our lead wholly-owned programs for the treatment of severe inflammatory disease
We are developing immune cell modulators, including two checkpoint agonists in clinical-stage development, for autoimmune and inflammatory disease: rosnilimab, our anti-PD-1 agonist program; and ANB032, our anti-BTLA agonist program, which is broadly applicable to human inflammatory diseases associated with lymphoid and myeloid immune cell dysregulation.
Continuing imsidolimab development in GPP and outlicensing plans
We are advancing imsidolimab, our anti-IL-36R antibody, for the treatment of generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP), and we are planning to outlicense imsidolimab prior to potential FDA approval.
Identifying emerging target biology opportunities in inflammation and expanding our proprietary pipeline by generating new antibody product candidates using our technology platform
We intend to remain at the forefront of discovery and development of new therapeutic opportunities in inflammation by understanding and translating biological breakthroughs into first-in-class therapeutic antibodies. Our approach includes assessment of human genetics and tissue pathology to understand the relevance of emerging targets to patients with unmet medical needs. We plan to leverage this knowledge to create new product candidates and position our current and future programs for rapid clinical proof-of-concept achievement. Using our proprietary antibody generation platform, we are able to rapidly develop novel therapeutic antibodies against emerging targets. Our goal is to advance multiple additional wholly-owned new therapeutic antibody program to IND submission.
Retaining rights to strategic products in key commercial markets
We intend to retain ownership and control of our pipeline programs to key inflection points. We may build sales and marketing capabilities in selected specialty markets that we believe can be served with a focused commercial organization. For certain programs, we plan to seek strategic collaborations that provide us with funding, infrastructure and marketing resources to advance through development and commercialization.
