Omid Vafa, CBO of Teneobio, Inc., added, "We are very pleased with the outcome of our collaboration with the Janssen R&D oncology team. The rapid advance of our program from discovery to preclinical proof-of-concept in less than a year and a half is a testament to Teneobio’s technology platforms and speed to enable drug discovery and to deliver. Janssen’s collaborative spirit allowed both teams to rapidly advance the multispecific antibody lead clinical candidate beyond preclinical proof-of-concept. We are eager to advance this asset to clinical stage, and Janssen’s deep expertise in the oncology space is a real advantage."
