Complix: Scaffolds with a twist
Monday, September 6, 2010
N.V. believes the protein scaffolds created with its Alphabody
technology will have greater stability and diversity than therapeutics based on
other protein scaffolds. The resulting therapeutics could bind their targets
with greater affinity than other types of proteins, and the company expects
Alphabodies to be amenable to routes of administration other than injection.
The company was founded in 2008 based on the work of CSO
Ignace Lasters and CEO Mark Vaeck. This is Vaeck's third venture in the
next-generation protein space. He was previously CEO of Ablynx
N.V., which is developing Nanobody therapeutics, and of ActoGeniX
N.V., which is using genetically modified bacteria for oral delivery of
protein and peptide therapeutics.
