About DXL(TM) Technology
DXL(TM) technology works by integrating self-binding peptides into monoclonal antibodies, potentiating target binding. Modified antibodies "cluster" upon engaging the target receptor site, resulting in greater "molecular mass" at the point of association. This may facilitate cancer cell destruction in a target dependent manner by increasing apoptosis, antibody dependent cell cytotoxicity and complement-dependent cytotoxicity. In addition, DXL(TM) antibodies have significantly extended dissociation rates, as measured by surface plasmon resonance. To learn more about InNexus' DXL(TM) technology, please visit www.ixsbio.com.
InNexus is a drug development company commercializing the next generation of monoclonal antibodies based on its DXL(TM) technology, which improves the potency of existing antibody products while opening new markets and disease applications. DXL(TM) antibodies utilize unique, novel and patented methods and technologies of InNexus.
InNexus is headquartered in British Columbia with principal management based in Scottsdale, Arizona on the campus of Mayo Clinic and has its own in-house developmental facilities. These development resources provide validation of protein and peptide discoveries, enabling InNexus (and its strategic partners) to advance novel drug therapeutics and diagnostics.
