BASEL, SWITZERLAND/CALIFORNIA, US: Lonza and Eclipse Therapeutics announced an agreement for the production of Eclipse’s novel cancer therapeutic antibody, ET-101, using Light Path Development Services. ET-101 is under investigation for the inhibition of the growth of cancer stem cells. Under the agreement, Lonza will produce phase 1 clinical material at its development and manufacturing facility in Slough, UK. Eliminating cancer stem cells represents a new cancer treatment paradigm that could offer a distinct advantage over existing strategies and a solution for chemoresistance.

“Lonza’s best-in-class antibody manufacturing capabilities will greatly support our development strategy to deliver the highest quality and most effective therapeutics targeting cancer stem cells. Moving into cell line development and subsequent manufacturing represents an important milestone for Eclipse,” said Dr Christopher Reyes, Chief Security Officer, Eclipse Therapeutics.
