Ibex announces SBIR award
Ibex Biosciences will continue to develop anti-MIF VHH antibodies by establishing larger production levels of the VHH and testing them in animal models. Our work will start with construction and expression of anti-MIF VHH and VHH-Fc antibodies. Succeeding feasibility work will focus on their characterization and demonstration of their functional antibody binding in cell line and animal models. While MIF has been demonstrated to play significant roles in many oncologic conditions, this evaluation will focus on prostate cancer for initial proof of concept. Subsequent development efforts will expand to other solid tumors such as pancreatic, lung, and others.
