ProBioGen AG, has signed a commercial license agreement with Roche for applying ProBioGen’s proprietary GlymaxX® technology to boost the antibody’s ADCC anti-tumor activity.

The GlymaxX® technology for production of afucosylated proteins is universally applicable, simple and potent. The unique advantage of the GlymaxX® technology is that a single GlymaxX® modified cell line is sufficient to produce both, completely fucosylated or afucosylated antibodies and those with an intermediate defined fuscosylation level. The technology can easily be integrated in newly developed or already existing cell lines of different origins.

About GlymaxX® - www.glymaxx.com

The GlymaxX® technology, developed by ProBioGen, prevents the addition of the sugar “fucose” to the N-linked antibody carbohydrate part by antibody producing cells. The absence of fucose enhances ADCC (antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity) activity for antibodies directed against cancer and infectious diseases. The GlymaxX® technology is based on the stable introduction of a gene for an enzyme which deflects the cellular pathway of fucose biosynthesis. ProBioGen offers this technology royalty-free to third parties.
