Company Directory / Oxford Biomedica Plc

Business Description

Oxford BioMedica was established in 1995 as a spin out from Oxford University.
"Oxford BioMedica plc (LSE: OXB) is a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative gene-based medicines and therapeutic vaccines that aim to improve the lives of patients with high unmet medical needs.

Our technology platforms include a highly efficient LentiVector® gene delivery system, which has specific advantages for targeting diseases of the central nervous system and the eye; and a unique tumour antigen (5T4), which is an ideal target for anti-cancer therapy.

Through in-house and collaborative research, we have a broad pipeline with current partners and licensees including Sanofi, Pfizer, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, MolMed, Sigma-Aldrich, Biogen Idec, Emergent BioSolutions and ImaginAb and Immune Design Corp.

Mission and strategy
The combined strength of our in-house development know-how, bioprocessing facilities and intellectual property creates a uniquely powerful integrated platform, positioning us at the forefront of gene and cell therapy.

Our strategy
We believe that gene therapy will become a mainstay of patient therapy in the future.

Our long term goal is to become an integrated, self-financing gene and cell therapy business using our LentiVector® platform capabilities to continue investing in our early-stage and pre-clinical pipeline to generate further valuable new product candidates. We will also continue to invest in lentiviral vector technology to ensure that the Group retains its leadership position, which will help maximise bioprocessing revenues."
