Top european biotech

Leading Europe Biotech Digital Media outlet Labiotech ranks Kymab among its nine top companies to watch in 2018

Labiotech has recognised Kymab as one of nine top European companies to watch in 2018, stating that "we are about to see the power of Kymab brought to bear".

Based in Cambridge, UK, Kymab is making better medicines by continually improving the best antibody technologies.

Kymab’s unique technologies drive rapid development of effective, human antibodies across four main therapeutic areas - immuno-oncology, inflammation, haematology and infectious disease.

In the past four months, Kymab has presented promising results on anti-tumour activity of its antibodies KY1003 and KY1044 : it also published in Science Translational Medicine results with KY1005 in graft-versus-host disease (GCHD).

These are among 19 products in Kymab’s published pipeline.

Dr Dave Chiswell, Kymab CEO, said in a September 2017 interview with Labiotech "I think we are getting as close as we can to the best way of making antibodies… We now have three candidates that could be in the clinic in the next two years."

Dr Chiswell was a founder of Cambridge Antibody Technology, which Labiotech ranked in 2017 as one of the seven best biotech companies in Europe’s history.
