AnaptysBio is a clinical-stage antibody development company advancing therapeutic antibody product candidates focused on unmet medical needs in inflammation. We develop our product candidates to address emerging biological targets using our proprietary antibody discovery technology platform, which is based upon a breakthrough understanding of the natural process of antibody generation, known as somatic hypermutation, or SHM, and replicates this natural process of antibody generation in vitro. Our strategy is to advance the development and commercialization of our proprietary product candidates, and for certain programs, establish partnerships with leading biopharmaceutical companies where we retain certain development and commercialization rights in the United States.
Our wholly-owned product pipeline includes ANB020 and ANB019, which are being developed to treat severe inflammatory disorders with unmet medical need. We are advancing our ANB020 product candidate, an antibody that inhibits the activity of interleukin-33, for the treatment of moderate-to-severe adult atopic dermatitis, severe adult peanut allergy and severe adult eosinophilic asthma. In addition, we are developing our ANB019 product candidate, an antibody that inhibits the interleukin-36 receptor, for the treatment of rare inflammatory diseases called generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) and palmoplantar pustular psoriasis (PPP).
Our company is led by a strong management team with a proven track record of successfully growing biotechnology companies with deep experience in antibody discovery and development, collaborations, operations and corporate finance.
Additionally, we have entered into multiple collaborations from which we expect multiple programs will enter the clinic. Our collaborations include an immuno-oncology-focused collaboration with TESARO and an inflammation-focused collaboration with Celgene.
