ANYARA (Naptumumab, Naptumomab estafenatox,) is a tumor targeting immunotherapy that enhances the ability of the immune system to recognize and kill the tumor. ANYARA induces the activation and expansion of specific T cells outside of the tumor microenvironment and redirect the T cells to attack the tumor cells. Preclinical data demonstrate that ANYARA has synergistic effect with checkpoint inhibitors in various tumor models.
Active Biotech has an agreement with NeoTX Therapeutics Ltd since October 2016 for the global development and commercialization of ANYARA for the treatment of cancer.
