Scientist.com Announces

On February 1, 2023, Scientist.com, the biopharma industry's largest R&D marketplace, announced the release of a new iOS mobile app. The app provides a new, easy-to-use, on-the-go experience for purchase request approvals and compliance. In addition, iPhone users receive untethered notifications for accepting, delegating, and clarifying requests without needing to use their computers. The result is speedier approvals and fewer delays in scientific discovery.

Scientist.com has spent the past fourteen years developing a digital marketplace that allows scientists to devote more time to science and less time to paperwork. The platform enables researchers to test more ideas in less time and at a lesser cost. It digitizes a company's complete research activities, automatically tracking purchases, contract management, payment processing, and generating business intelligence reports.

Scientist.com Founder and CTO Chris Petersen commented, "One of the major barriers to drug discovery is the time it takes to ensure all compliance measures are met for a given research project, and understandably so." He added, "Our goal in building the Compliance Mobile App is to put compliance in the pocket of approvers, therefore minimizing the time it takes for researchers to move through the R&D process."

Atreca and Xencor Launch New Program to Develop T Cell Engaging Bispecific Antibody

Atreca, Inc. | February 07, 2023

On February 6, 2023, Atreca, Inc. (Atreca), a biotechnology company that develops novel therapeutics through a deep understanding of the human immune response, with a focus on innovative novel cancer immunotherapeutics, and Xencor, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops cytokines and engineered antibodies for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and cancer, announced, as part of their existing strategic collaboration, that they have mutually selected the first program combining an Atreca-discovered antibody with Xencor's XmAb® bispecific Fc domain and a cytotoxic T-cell binding domain (CD3). The initiative announced is the first of up to two collaborative programs that can be selected by mutual agreement for future development and commercialization, with each partner sharing 50% of expenses and earnings. This program's clinical development, regulatory, and commercialization operations will be led by Atreca, while Xencor will lead the second prospective joint program. Furthermore, the agreement permits each partner to pursue up to two collaborative programs separately. The unveiled joint program is based on APN-346958, an antibody discovered by Atreca. APN-346958 targets a new RNA-binding protein and is tumor-reactive in at least 50% of samples for six tumor types tested: thyroid, colorectal, head and neck, melanoma, urothelial, and brain cancer. In preclinical tests, the XmAb bispecific antibodies engineered against the target of APN-346958 displayed substantial anti-tumor activity. Atreca and Xencor hope to name a candidate from the program later this year, with Atreca aiming for an investigational new drug (IND) application in early 2025. About Atreca Founded in 2011, Atreca is a biopharmaceutical firm that employs its distinct discovery platform to create innovative antibody-based immunotherapeutics. Its Immune Repertoire CaptureT​M (IRCTM) technology provides unmatched insight into how cancer patients' immune responses can lead to improved clinical outcomes offering access to an undiscovered terrain in oncology. Atreca was created by industry leaders, scientists, and investors who believe that unlocking today's patients' immune responses is the key to developing a new generation of therapies.
