Invectys strengthens its intellectual property

Invectys files a patent on the acquisition of antibodies against an immune checkpoint expressed in all types of cancers and strengthens its HLA-G intellectual property

Paris, July 29th, 2016 – Invectys announces the filing of a new patent at the European Patent Office, UPO.
This patent concerns the acquisition of anti-bodies against a novel immune checkpoint that aim at unlocking the immune response, thus allowing the immune system to destroy cancer cells. The targeted immune checkpoint is expressed in a large number of cancers, opening broad application perspectives in immuno-oncology.

« The discovery of this new anti-HLA-G antibody opens up new options for cancer treatment. Today, anti-immune checkpoint antibodies are only effective in certain indications and in certain patients, » explains Pierre Langlade Demoyen, Invectys CEO et co-founder, further explaining that « We believe we can lift numerous brakes that hinder the treatment of several cancer types. The potential applications of this discovery are wide in immuno-oncology. »

« With this new patent, Invectys further strenghtens its intellectual property and opens new possibilities for anti-cancer immunotherapy« , says Abderrahim Lachgar, Invectys CBO, adding « Invectys’ dynamic intellectual property is supported by the trust of our investors, who enable the innovations by our team of researchers. »
