TeneoBio brings powerful arsenal of information to Amgen

August 03, 2021

Amgen, one of the world’s largest biopharmaceutical companies, announced on July 28 that it will pay $900 million in cash to pick up TeneoBio Inc., a biotechnology firm based in Newark, Calif. Amgen will also make future contingent milestone payments that could be worth up to $1.6 billion in cash. TeneoBio is developing a new class of biologics as therapeutics against cancer, autoimmunity, and infectious diseases. Currently, TeneoBio has a number of products in both pre-clinical and clinical development- these products are for the treatment of multiple myeloma, prostate cancer, and immune disorders. 

What did we learn about the target, TeneoBio, using Foundation?

Its CEO, Roland Buelow, has 45 patents. This bar chart shows his patents by topic and status. Most of his granted patents are in the areas of xenotransplantation and oligopeptides. Most of his patent applications involved oligopeptides, B cell, and organ transplantation.

And there’s even more firepower behind TeneoBio. We looked at the company’s clinical trials, patents, and more.

Clinical trials

On the clinical trials front, TeneoBio has four. Two started in 2019 and two started in 2021. These clinical trials are:

  1. A Study of TNB-383B in Subjects With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma (estimated study completion date is December 2021)
  2. A Study of TNB-486 With Relapsed or Refractory B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (estimated study completion date is June 2023)
  3. A Study of TNB-585 in Subjects With Metastatic Castrate-Resistant Prostate Carcinoma (estimated study completion date is March 2023)
  4. Expanded Access for TNB-383B in a Subject With Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma
