Rockland Immunochemicals Awarded Phase I SBIR Funding to Develop Novel Agents for Cancer Diagnosis and Targeted Therapy
Date:10/28/2013

. “The size, ease of manufacture, and condition-resistant nature of sdAbs make them the best choice as capture molecules. We expect that our sdAb imaging agents will have superiority over other agents designed for in vivo and in situ biodetection and diagnosis.”

“In these times of shrinking government investment in research, this SBIR grant validates Rockland’s business model of collaboration with leading academic institutions to aggregate, develop and commercialize technologies that will ultimately benefit humanity,” continued Jim Fendrick, President and CEO of Rockland Immunochemicals. “This research is in line with the company’s expertise in antibodies and antibody based tools. We are confident that this collaboration will generate significant innovation and that the results will have great scientific and commercial applications.”

In the planned Phase II portion of this project, the key antibodies will be radionuclide labeled and characterized using PET scanners in collaboration with Yale University and University of Pittsburg. Radionuclide labeled antibodies specific to cancer cells can be used not only as in vivo imaging agents but also for targeted cancer therapy.
