Synaffix B.V., a biotechnology company focused on commercializing its clinical-stage platform technology that enables antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) with best-in-class therapeutic index, today announced the signature of a license and option agreement with ProfoundBio, an emerging oncology biotherapeutics company.

The deal provides access to multiple novel linker-payload technologies developed by Synaffix and includes access to the GlycoConnect™ glycan conjugation and HydraSpace™ polar spacer technologies, both of which are known to optimize the therapeutic properties (efficacy and safety) of ADCs. Upon signature, ProfoundBio was granted non-exclusive license rights to deploy the above technologies for one therapeutic program that targets an undisclosed specific tumor associated antigen (TAA). Additionally, ProfoundBio retains license option rights to a second TAA that can be nominated later.
