Pittsboro - Biolex, Inc., a privately held protein therapeutics company, today announced the signing of a new agreement with Medarex, Inc. , an antibody therapeutics company, to create a commercial line for an undisclosed Medarex monoclonal antibody using the Biolex LEX System™. Including this project, Biolex has a total of eleven partner proteins with five different top-tier partners to date, two of which have already advanced to GLP scale-up production.

"I am excited to be adding another antibody to our Partner Proteins portfolio of products in evaluation using our unique approach to protein production," said Jan Turek, President and CEO of Biolex. "We are pleased that a company such as Medarex, with longstanding monoclonal antibody expertise, sees the potential advantages of using the LEX System™ and recognizes the value of new approaches to protein expression."

Biolex will implement a Commercial Line Creation project using its proprietary LEX System™ for one of Medarex' clinical-stage monoclonal antibodies. At Medarex' option, Biolex may scale-up and manufacture the antibody following the commercial line creation phase. Financial terms of the collaboration have not been disclosed.
