Abeome and Cato Research to Collaborate on Ovarian Cancer Therapeutic
Date:7/15/2008

ATHENS, Ga., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Abeome Corporation, a Georgia-based biotech company, announced today a strategic equity investment by Cato BioVentures and a collaboration with Cato Research Ltd., its global contract research and development organization. The investment and collaboration will help support continued development of Abeome's lead ovarian cancer project.

Abeome's proprietary technology vastly improves the development of monoclonal antibodies and Abeome is deploying its technology to provide a shotgun approach to develop an array of antibodies for an ovarian cancer therapeutic target. The company has developed novel monoclonal antibodies to four ovarian cancer cell lines and has begun screening these antibodies in search of those which cause either cancer cell growth inhibition or death.

Joel Eisner, Ph.D., Associate Principal of Cato BioVentures, states, "We are fascinated with Abeome's ability to develop such a large library of monoclonal antibodies by use of their technology. They have pushed the bottleneck of therapeutic development to the screening step which will provide a broader selection of novel antibodies to more cancer targets."

Monoclonal antibodies have become the centerpiece of many high-profile therapeutic products. Their specificity to disease targets, like cancer, has drawn significant attention from the biotech community.

"Ovarian cancer is a dreadful disease which is frequently diagnosed at a very late stage of development. With no effective therapeutic drugs on the market to date, we expect to address this unmet medical need. Our technology improves the likelihood of finding that one-of-a-kind antibody that can make the difference," said Mike Wanner, President and CEO of Abeome. "We are excited to have Cato Research join our expanding team of professional experts to help us with this important project".
