AbSano

We believe that the right combination of knowledge, techniques, effort and enthusiasm will bring us closer to our goal of improving healthcare by developing novel diagnostic and therapeutic options. AbSano develops novel antibodies for innovative diagnostic tools as well as therapeutic purposes. Current projects involve the identification and optimisation of antibodies targeting key players in autoimmune diseases and various cancer types. As these selected targets play important roles over the course of various diseases, development of specific antibodies will open up possibilities for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. For instance, depending on the target of interest, these antibodies can be used to interfere with endogenous protein function or to guide a certain compound to the right cell population.

Citryll

Citryll is taking a new approach to treat autoimmune and other human diseases, such as lupus, vasculitis, pulmonary fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis and organ damage due to sepsis. This approach involves targeting and inhibiting the source of auto-antigens and neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) derived toxic molecules, rather than broadly targeting inflammation or acquired immunity. The latter are the MoAs of current medicines like anti-TNF antibodies, small molecule Jak inhibitors and antagonists of B cell biology like anti-CD20 antibodies. Citryll’s lead programme targets the formation of neutrophil extracellular traps, called NETs and its pathological consequences. Citryll BV is a private pharmaceutical company that is dedicated to the development and commercialisation of therapeutics that target NETosis and NETs. Citryll was founded by ModiQuest B.V., originator of the tACPA patents, Helmuth van Es, CEO Citryll (co-founder of Audion Therapeutics, Galapagos, Antabio and Effecta Pharma), and Renato Chirivi, CSO Citryll and co-inventor of tACPA antibodies.
