Gallus to Manufacture Anti-PSMA mAb for Progenics Pharmaceuticals


manufacturing organization announced that it has been selected by Progenics Pharmaceuticals to manufacture the anti-prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) monoclonal antibody used in Progenics’ PSMA ADC product candidate. Under the agreement the antibody will be produced in Gallus’ commercial manufacturing facility in St. Louis, Mo.

PSMA ADC is a fully human monoclonal antibody-drug conjugate designed to deliver chemotherapeutic drug selectively to prostate cancer cells. It does so by targeting the three-dimensional structure of PSMA, a protein that is a clinically validated biomarker of prostate cancer, which is expressed on the surface of prostate cancer cells. The PSMA antibody produced at Gallus is designed to internalize into the cancer cell, release active anti-cancer drug, and destroy the malignant cell.
