ProBioGen and TEVA sign license agreement on HuALN Technology
ProBioGen announced the signature of a non-exclusive license agreement on its proprietary human Artificial Lymph Node (HuALN) platform technology with TEVA. The unique human Artificial Lymph Node model was developed by ProBioGen as superior 3D-micro-organoid model for analyzing substance effects on the human immune system in vitro.
Under the terms of the agreement the technology platform will be transferred to TEVA as a predictive tool to assist in the assessment of TEVA’s biopharmaceutical drug candidates.
ProBioGen’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Volker Sandig, commented: “With the complex, in vivo-like human Artificial Lymph Node model we have demonstrated effects which were impossible to see in conventional models, bridging the existing gap between animal models and first-in-man applications. We look much forward to this collaboration and the combined expertise on either side to develop the HuALN platform even further”.
