Date:5/19/2010

LOS ANGELES, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- ImaginAb, Inc. and the GSK Clinical Imaging Centre (part of the GlaxoSmithKline Group of Companies) have concluded two research collaboration agreements around a clinical therapeutic antibody asset currently under development by GSK in the field of oncology.

"ImaginAb is pleased to have formalized this collaboration with the GSK CIC," said Dr. Christian Behrenbruch, CEO of ImaginAb. "Not only does GSK have an excellent biologics pipeline, but the company's large-scale commitment to diagnostic imaging is extremely impressive and this particular collaboration is a natural fit with ImaginAb's technology platform."

"Our collaboration with ImaginAb for antibody fragment imaging is part of our further exploration of the role of biologics in diagnostic imaging with Positron Emission Tomography (PET), an increasingly important clinical modality and a tool that is of significant interest to pharma in the discovery and development of new therapeutics," commented Dr. Paul Matthews, VP for Translational Research and Head of the GSK CIC. "As we expand and develop our pipeline, technologies such as ImaginAb's recombinant antibody fragment engineering technology may help us to look at targeted molecular therapeutics in new ways."
