Telik Receives $1.5 Million National Cancer Institute Contract to Develop Novel Antibody-based PET Imaging Agent for Pancreatic Cancer
Date:8/25/2014

in pancreatic cancer."  

The carbohydrate antigen sialyl-Lewisa (sLea) is expressed on pancreatic colon and stomach cancers cells at high levels where it is used as a tumor marker and presents an attractive molecular target. sLea  facilitates tumor adhesion and extravasation that are key events for tumor metastasis, and thus presents a marker for the very cells that cause cancer recurrence. Increased sLea expression on tumors is correlated with poor clinical outcome.  MabVax Therapeutics has generated fully human monoclonal antibodies against sLea with unusual high affinity for this carbohydrate ligand. MabVax discovered the 5B1 anti-sLea antibody from a patient who was vaccinated with a sLea anti-cancer vaccine that is licensed to MabVax Therapeutics from MSKCC. 

About Telik and MabVax, Post-Merger

On July 8, 2014, Telik, Inc. merged with MabVax Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on the development of vaccine and antibody based therapies to address unmet medical needs in the treatment of cancer.  MabVax has discovered a pipeline of human monoclonal antibody products based on the protective immune responses generated by patients who have been immunized against targeted cancers. Therapeutic vaccines under development were discovered at MSKCC and are exclusively licensed to MabVax prior to the merger.  The post-merger company is currently evaluating development programs under way at Telik prior to the merger, in addition to plans to continue developing the existing pipeline at MabVax.  Additional information about the company is available at www.telik.com.
