Denmark's Genmab has regained the rights to the antibody Humax-CD4 from Merck Serono. Genmab granted Merck Serono worldwide rights to develop and market Humax-CD4, which is used for treatment of T-cell lymphomas, an immune system related cancer form, two years ago. The company says it will continue the development of the antibody and will further work targeting the CD4 receptor as a mechanism to prevent or slow HIV infection.
"We are very enthusiastic about having HuMax-CD4 back in the hands of Genmab's experienced clinical development team," said Genmab chief executive Lisa N. Drakeman.
