About Meditope Biosciences, Inc.
Meditope Biosciences is a biotechnology company developing best-in-class antibody-based cancer products. Discovered at City of Hope, a National Cancer Institute designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Meditope's technology is capable of turning any mAb into a proprietary, site-specific "Lego-like" system that is able to attach and detach drugs to antibodies without the need for chemical conjugation. The result is a memAb (meditope-enabled mAb) product, which is anticipated to be significantly more effective and offer multiple manufacturing advantages compared to existing antibody-drug conjugate technologies. The technology has the potential to advance the antibody market by producing an array of new therapeutic and diagnostic products.
