About Affibody

Affibody is a Swedish biotech company focused on developing next generation biopharmaceuticals based on its unique proprietary technology platforms: Affibody® molecules and Albumod™. The platforms have been developed within the company since 1998 which has resulted in more than 150 granted patents and 30 patent families.

The company has been executing a license driven model with a focus on therapeutics since 2009 and currently employs around 30 highly skilled scientists whereof a majority holds a PhD. Since the initiation of the license driven model in 2009, the company has entered into a number of therapy focused collaborations including deals with partners such as Abclon, Biotest, Daewoong, Daiichi-Sankyo, MedImmune, Nordic Nanovector, and Sobi. The aggregate potential milestones from these agreements exceed $300m and the associated royalties may generate substantial revenues for the company in the future.

Affibody is at a strategic inflection point as the company is maturing from a pre-clinical to a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company. The pipeline currently consists of more than ten (10) proprietary and partnered products in multiple indications. Two therapeutic products are in the clinic and several more will enter into clinical trials in the coming years.
