Driving new boundaries in drug development

Identifying and investigating new treatments to improve patient outcomes

Our pipeline

We are building a rich pipeline of assets in four main therapeutic spaces: immuno-oncology, inflammation, haematology and infectious diseases. Our most advanced assets entered development in 2015 with first proof of concepts scheduled for readout by 2019.

Screening for anti-human PD-L1 antibodies

At the 2017 British Society for Immunology Congress, Kymab's team describe a cell-based, in vitro screening cascade to characterise anti-human PD-L 1 antibodies, identifying a lead clone, KY1003, that has the attributes of a clinically relevant PD-L1 antibody

Modelling T-cells in tumour microenvironments

The Kymab team developed a "tumour-educated" T-cell killing assay for predictive in vitro assessment of anti-PD-L1 antibodies: data presented at the 2017 British Society for Immunology Congress shows how KY1003 can revert T-cell exhaustion in in vitro models.

KY1044 anti-ICOS activity

At the April 2018 American Association for Cancer Research Annual meeting, Kymab's team show that combining immune checkpoint blockers with the anti-ICOS KY1044 antibody results in a strong tumour response, warranting the assessment of KY1044 in cancer patients in a clinical trial

KY1055: ICOS/PD-L1 bispecific antibody

Kymab's data reports that KY1055, a novel ICOS/PD-L1 bispecific antibody, efficiently enhances T cell activation and delivers a potent anti-tumour response in vivo: the results, presented at the April 2018 American Association for Cancer Research Annual meeting, support development of KY1055 for the treatment of solid tumours

Kymouse has full human antibody system

Published in Nature Biotechnology in March 2014, the paper by Kymab scientists describes the development of Kymouse, which is able to produce an enormous range of human antibodies that can be developed as potent drugs to treat diseases such as cancer, autoimmune and infectious diseases.
