Seattle And Unum Make Cancer Pact

Department: Business
Keywords: pharmaceuticals, biotech, cancer immunotherapy, cellular therapy

Seattle Genetics will pay Unum Therapeutics $25 million to develop antibody-coupled T-cell receptor (ACTR) therapies for cancer. Unum combines engineered T cells with antibodies that can help them home in on cancer cells. Under the pact, which also calls for Seattle Genetics to make a $5 million equity investment in Unum, the partners will develop two ACTRs that use antibodies from Seattle Genetics.
