Two European science-driven companies that retain ambitions to grow into independent sales-based pharmaceutical firms are to collaborate in immuno-oncology. Genmab and BioNTech (which also recently announced a separate deal with Eli Lilly) announced on 19 May that they would jointly research, develop and commercialize bispecific antibody (BAb) products. Both firms told Scrip that they had each the will and resources to commercialize any resultant products without licensing out to larger pharmaceutical third-parties.
