Dyax Corp. And Kadmon Sign Strategic Licensing Agreement For DX-2400

DX-2400 was discovered using Dyax’s “gold-standard” phage display technology where Dyax applied its extensive selection and screening expertise to selectively block catalytic activity of a single protease within a larger and closely related family of enzymes. This antibody is another example of the superior functional selectivity available to validate novel biologic targets using Dyax’s phage display libraries.

About Dyax’s Phage Display

Dyax’s proprietary drug discovery technology, phage display, provides an efficient means to identify compounds that interact with a wide array of therapeutic targets. Dyax’s discovery capabilities have been further enhanced through automation, which has enabled the Company to evaluate a large number of molecules binding to each target. In this way, Dyax is able to rapidly identify and select a specific antibody, peptide or small protein with the desired biochemical and biological characteristics. Dyax’s state-of-the-art antibody phage display libraries allow for the rapid isolation of fully human target-specific antibodies from a library of billions of unique antibodies. These libraries are screened using in vitro selection strategies that are tailored to increase the yield of lead candidates with the desired therapeutic properties. 1,2
