GENEVA and GREAT NECK, N.Y., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Selexis SA ("Selexis") and Neogenix Oncology, Inc. ("Neogenix") today jointly announced a Research Services Agreement for the rapid development of a high-performance CHO based production cell line expressing an undisclosed Neogenix antibody. The cell line will be developed by Selexis scientists utilizing the industry leading Selexis SURE Cell Line Development(TM) Platform.

"We are very appreciative to have this opportunity to establish a strong partnership with the world class scientists at Neogenix as the company develops innovative therapies for the management of serious and difficult to treat cancers," said Dr Igor Fisch, CEO and co-founder of Selexis SA. "By targeting antigens shown only to be associated with tumor cells, Neogenix is in a unique position with regards to treating cancer, making this a very special program to us."

"After careful consideration Neogenix chose Selexis for this important project based on their industry reputation and proven record of performance in being able to quickly generate production cell lines to support high demand antibody programs like ours," said Dr. Andrew Bristol, Vice President of Research and Development of Neogenix.

Neogenix Oncology, Inc. announced last week that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted permission for the company to begin a Phase I trial with its first therapeutic antibody, NPC-1C under its first IND (Investigational New Drug Application). This first human trial will evaluate the safety of NPC-1C in patients with late stage pancreatic or colorectal cancer. The project being undertaken with Selexis will make an important contribution toward the development and potential commercialization of this and other potential Neogenix products.
