Mablink Bioscience, a pre-clinical biotechnology company pioneering the development of next-generation antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) via its PSARLink™ proprietary platform, has announced an agreement to be acquired by Eli Lilly and Company (Lilly).
PSARlink™, an innovative hydrophilic linker using a polysarcosine arm, holds potential for broadening the therapeutic index of ADCs to unleash their full therapeutic impact.
Jean-Guillaume Lafay, Mablink’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Mablink’s agreement to be acquired by Lilly is a strong endorsement of our approach, our technology and our team.
“The values we share with Lilly, and our combined expertise are also a unique opportunity to leverage Mablink’s capabilities and endeavors to potentially bring transformative therapies to cancer patients with high unmet medical needs. Our thanks go to all inside and outside Mablink who have supported our efforts and development since inception.”
The transaction is subject to approval from the French Ministry of the Economy.
