PALO ALTO, Calif.

Open Monoclonal Technology, Inc. (OMT) today announced a license that provides Amgen Inc. with access to OMT’s proprietary OmniRat®, OmniMouse® and OmniFlic™ human antibody generation platforms, jointly known as OmniAb. Amgen becomes OMT’s 12th non-academic partner globally with such multi-platform access.

Dr. Roland Buelow, OMT founder and CEO, said, “Amgen was an early protein therapeutics leader and became one of a few companies with transgenic mouse platforms for human antibody discovery in 2005 when they acquired Abgenix and its XenoMouse®. With the license from OMT, Amgen further builds on this capability as it gains access to complementary platforms for development of fully human, mono- and bispecific antibodies without any target restrictions.”
