CellClone

The potential of Humabs’ CellClone technology is supported by a rich pipeline.

Humabs has developed a unique and comprehensive approach for screening and selecting highly effective naturally occurring human antibodies.
The technology originates from the laboratory of Prof. Antonio Lanzavecchia, Director of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) in Switzerland and scientific founder of Humabs. Utilizing Humabs’ proprietary CellClone technologies, human monoclonal antibodies are isolated from memory B cells and plasma cells derived from convalescent patients. Ultra-potent antibodies are rapidly identified, engineered and developed for prophylactic, therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
Development Pipeline

With more than fifteen development candidates, Humabs has a broad and varied pipeline, internal and public health programs. These anti-infective immunotherapy candidates are being developed to treat a number of viral and bacterial diseases.

Humabs has a successful track record of advancing its leads through the early stages of development.
