Kindred Biosciences Announces Half-Life Extension Technology For


SAN FRANCISCO. January 8, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Kindred Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: KIN), a commercial biopharmaceutical company focused on saving and improving pet lives, announced today that it has developed a technology that can help reduce the half-life of Dog antibodies can be extended up to 30% in triplicate. A patent application for this technology has been filed.

The study included 12 dogs, including four groups with different modifications using KindredBio technology and a wild-type dog antibody as a control. A prolongation of the half-life was observed in all dogs except for the wild type, the extent of the prolongation against native antibodies being two to three times. Further studies to further differentiate between lead molecules and to expand the sample size are planned for 2020.

Half-life prolongation technologies can improve therapeutic performance in a variety of ways. A reduced dose frequency and / or dose amount can lead to an improvement in patient comfort and compliance. It can also significantly reduce the cost of goods and improve profitability and market positioning. In addition, a higher drug concentration using the same dose and interval as the starting antibody may result in prolonged drug exposure and possibly improved efficacy.

"This innovation is a major breakthrough with a wide impact on our biologicals portfolio," said KindredBio's chief executive officer. Richard Chin"Our market research shows that longer dosing intervals are a critical factor in economic success. This platform technology has the potential to significantly improve the market position of KindredBio's biological pipeline by creating first-class and more profitable veterinary drugs while offering out-licensing opportunities."

"We expect longer-term therapeutics and improved comfort to accelerate the switch to antibody-oriented veterinary medicine. KindredBio is proud to be a leading provider of pet biologics, with an extensive pipeline and state-of-the-art biologics manufacturing capabilities." a first class team of protein engineers. "

KindredBios Canine Biologics pipeline includes treatments in development for neurodermatitis, inflammatory bowel disease and parvovirus.
