PRINCETON, N.J., BASEL, Switzerland and SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Five Prime Therapeutics, Inc. ("FivePrime") has entered into research and commercial agreements with BioWa, Inc. and Lonza to use their POTELLIGENT® CHOK1SV Cell Line for the research, development and production of multiple proprietary antibodies in FivePrime's oncology pipeline.
