About Agenus

Agenus is focused in the areas of oncology and infectious diseases. With our strong platform technologies, we have advanced multiple product candidates through the clinic and defined the most suitable patient populations to benefit from our novel vaccine approach. To advance our pioneering work in HSP-based vaccines, we are applying our technology to both autologous and non-autologous therapies. Agenus' licensees for QS-21 Stimulon® adjuvant include GlaxoSmithKline and Janssen Alzheimer Immunotherapy (a wholly owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson). QS-21 represents the most advanced adjuvant currently in clinical development. Agenus and NewVac LLC (a subsidiary of ChemRar High Tech Center and resident of the Skolkovo Innovation Center in Russia), a company focused on the development of innovative technology for cancer immunotherapy, have formed a license, development and manufacturing technology transfer agreement for Agenus' Oncophage® (HSPPC-96 ; vitespen) vaccine. Oncophage is approved in Russia for the treatment of renal cell carcinoma ("RCC"; kidney cancer) in patients at intermediate risk of recurrence. Under the agreement, Agenus has granted NewVac an exclusive license to manufacture, market and sell Oncophage as well as pursue a development program of Oncophage in combination with NewVac's co-adjuvant technology in the Russian Federation and CIS countries. Our business strategy is two pronged (1) to discover, develop and commercialize novel vaccines in our core therapeutic areas and (2) to partner and collaborate with leading institutions and companies in an effort to speed our product candidates to market. We recognize the importance of combining our expertise with those of our industry colleagues to help important medical discoveries reach patients and physicians faster.
