About Memgen, LLC

Memgen is a biotechnology company with offices in Dallas, TX and San Diego, CA. Memgen was founded four years ago to develop non-toxic and targeted active immunotherapies for the treatment of cancers. Its lead product, ISF35, has demonstrated potent anti-leukemic activity as a single agent while being well tolerated. ISF35 generates none of the immunosuppressive activities associated with standard cancer treatments.

ISF35's results are achieved through its ability to bind to a protein found on leukemic B lymphocytes. This activates a natural immune process that causes malignant cells to become more sensitive to subsequent chemotherapy treatments. This targeted and active approach by ISF35 first makes the leukemias and lymphomas more "visible" to the human immune system. Then, ISF35 activates the immune system so that it can seek out and destroy the cancerous cells.

Memgen is now seeking corporate partners to assist in the development of the ISF35 molecule as it enters advanced stage clinical trials. For more information about Memgen, please visit http://www.memgenbio.com.
