BURLINGAME, Calif., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Apexigen, Inc. announced today that it has entered into a collaboration and worldwide license agreement with Centocor Research & Development, Inc. and its affiliates to utilize Apexigen's proprietary therapeutic antibody technologies to discover and develop monoclonal antibody drugs.  Apexigen will generate and screen antibodies to several targets specified by Centocor R&D, which will be responsible for development and commercialization of all products resulting from the collaboration.  While financial details were not disclosed, Apexigen will receive an upfront license fee, and is eligible to receive future milestone and royalty payments if certain development and commercialization milestones are achieved.
