BASEL SWITZERLAND/LA JOLLA, US: BioWa Inc, the health science company, and Lonza have entered into research agreements with Pfizer Inc allowing the use of the POTELLIGENT CHOK1SV Cell Line in the research and development of multiple proprietary antibodies in Pfizer’s pipeline.

POTELLIGENT CHOK1SV is a host cell line for manufacturing recombinant antibodies that combines BioWa’s Technology and Lonza’s Gene Expression System. Antibodies produced by this cell line exhibit enhanced antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity and can exert potent cytotoxic effects even when their target antigen is low. In addition, they work in whole blood and retain all other desirable features of common antibodies.

“We are pleased that the core value of POTELLIGENT Technology has been recognized by a global pharmaceutical company such as Pfizer, and are excited to work together with Pfizer on their innovative antibody research pipelines,” said Yasunori Yamaguchi, President and CEO, BioWa.
