T-Guard is a novel therapeutic approach designed to help reset the immune system in patients who have a severe immune disease or have developed post-transplantation rejection. T-Guard consists of a unique combination of two toxin-conjugated monoclonal antibodies that has been shown in preclinical and early clinical testing to safely and swiftly restore a patient’s immune system.

We are very pleased to continue working with Xenikos on this project and to create a strong long-term partnership with them,” said Dámaso Molero, General Manager at 3P Biopharmaceuticals. “This collaboration proves the experience and know-how of 3P’s services for recombinant protein production in both mammalian and microbial expression systems. 3P, as a global manufacturing partner, has proven expertise in commercial production as well as in process validation and process characterization.

In this process, we have come to know 3P as an appreciated, flexible and reliable service partner that delivers on its promises,” said Ypke van Oosterhout, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of Xenikos. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration and having the tremendous expertise of 3P on our side as we move our lead candidate into Phase 3 clinical development.
