Highlights of our tech platform & competitive edge

Using a novel, rational process, our proprietary discovery and engineering technology yields multispecific antibody-based therapeutics with tailored pharmacokinetic properties that improve on first-generation antibody therapies in terms of potency, stability, effect duration, and safety. Alongside our own in-house pipeline programs we have a number of strong discovery and development partnerships with pharma and biotech.

Enabling novel modes of action with favorable benefit-to-risk profiles

We are establishing a proprietary pipeline of differentiated therapeutics by targeting clinically validated pathways with multispecific molecules to create novel mechanisms of action designed to differentiate from standard of care by superior efficacy and favorable safety. Our most advanced program, ND021, exemplifies this strategy by blocking immune-suppressive PD-(L)1 signaling with best-in-class potency and simultaneously triggering 4-1BB-mediated T cell stimulation specifically in the tumor microenvironment. ND021 is about to enter Phase 1 clinical testing.

Numab Therapeutics and Boehringer Ingelheim Enter into Collaboration to Develop Multi-specific Antibody Therapeutics for Cancer and Retinal Diseases

Numab Therapeutics and Boehringer Ingelheim today announced that…

Numab Therapeutics and Boehringer Ingelheim today announced that they have entered into a research collaboration and worldwide licensing agreement. It will start with two projects aiming at novel therapies for difficult-to-treat lung and gastrointestinal (GI) cancers and patients with geographic atrophy (GA), a progressive, irreversible retinal disease that occurs in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) for which there is no current treatment. The collaboration brings together Boehringer Ingelheim’s leading expertise in the research and development of life-changing breakthrough therapies with Numab’s multi-specific antibody platform.   Lung and GI cancers and retinal diseases are key focus areas of Boehringer Ingelheim’s research and development program. In oncology the company has built a broad and diverse pipeline, combining cancer immunology and cancer cell-directed approaches. The novel T-cell engager to be developed with Numab adds to Boehringer Ingelheim’s growing cancer immunology portfolio and supports the strategy to take cancer on by targeting ‘cold’ tumors with synergistic combination approaches. In retinal diseases, Boehringer Ingelheim is pursuing a holistic approach leveraging existing expertise in oncology, inflammation, neurodegeneration, fibrosis and cardiometabolic diseases. The new GA program with Numab further broadens the company’s comprehensive portfolio of next-generation retinal therapy approaches in various stages of development up to Phase 2 in macular degeneration and diabetic retinal diseases.
