About Eleven Biotherapeutics
Eleven Biotherapeutics, Inc. is a late clinical-stage company advancing a broad pipeline of novel anti-cancer agents based on the Company’s targeted protein therapeutics (TPTs) platform. The Company’s TPTs genetically combine antibody-based fragments with protein immunotoxin
payloads to create a single protein molecule through the Company’s proprietary one-step manufacturing process. The Company believes its TPTs can potentially offer significant advantages in treating cancer versus existing antibody drug conjugate technologies. The Company’s approach to drug design creates TPTs that it believes facilitate effective tumor targeting with cancer cell-killing properties unique to protein payloads versus small molecules. The ability of TPTs cancer cell-killing properties to promote an anti-tumor immune response suggest that TPTs will potentially combine well with immune oncology drugs. TPTs fusion protein construction provides enhanced linker stability and an efficient and cost effective manufacturing process.
