Ecallantide and other compounds in Dyax’s pipeline were identified using its patented phage display technology, which rapidly selects compounds that bind with high affinity and specificity to therapeutic targets. Dyax leverages this technology broadly through the Licensing and Funded Research Program (LFRP). Collectively, LFRP agreements generate significant revenue for Dyax in the form of license fees, milestone payments and/or royalties. The success of the Company’s LFRP is illustrated by the program’s advanced licensee pipeline that includes 18 candidates in clinical development. Of those candidates, three are in Phase 3 clinical trials, six are in Phase 2 and nine are in Phase 1.
