Antibody Design Labs Founded in 2011, Antibody Design Labs™ is committed to become a leader in the field of recombinant antibody technologies. Over the last 30 years, techniques have rapidly evolved to make antibodies a primary component of modern research, modern diagnostic, and emerging therapeutics. Following the initial discovery of monoclonal hybridomas, technologies such as phage display have become routine in many laboratories. Still, getting the right antibody for the right application can be a long journey where high-throughput approaches can be very effective but at prohibitive costs. Antibody Design Labs™ will be a centralized place to access tools, information, techniques in the field of recombinant antibody generation, engineering and design. www.abdesignlabs.com
Elcelyx Elcelyx Therapeutics is developing novel therapeutics based on Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM) science to address unmet needs in the pharmaceutical market. The company's lead proprietary product, metformin delayed-release (Metformin DR; also referred to as “NewMet”) has demonstrated clinical proof-of-concept for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and plans are to initiate a Phase 3 clinical trial later this year in the currently under-served moderate to severe renally‑impaired type 2 diabetes patient population. Metformin DR is being developed to potentially address the needs of the metformin intolerant and renally contraindicated type 2 sub-populations. ADA and EASD guidelines suggest that metformin is the preferred first agent for all patients with type 2 diabetes if not contraindicated and if tolerated. Metformin DR, by virtue of its unique delivery may have clinical utility in both populations. www.elcelyx.com
