AbbVie has announced four new research collaborations with leading healthcare innovators to advance early-stage research in key therapeutic areas.

The company will work together with Pure MHC on a research and licence agreement to discover and validate peptide targets for use with T-cell receptor therapeutics, for the treatment of several types of cancer.

“AbbVie has announced four new research collaborations with Pure MHC, Dong-A-ST, Zebra Biologics and Genomics Medicine Ireland.“

Also in the field of oncology, the firm will collaborate with South Korea's Dong-A-ST to study MerTK inhibitors in preclinical development for use in conjunction with immuno-oncology therapies.

Meanwhile, an alliance with Zebra Biologics has been agreed, with the aim of discovering agonist antibody therapeutics for inflammatory diseases. This will leverage Zebra's novel and patented function-based antibody discovery platform to generate antibodies.

Finally, a partnership with Genomics Medicine Ireland will see AbbVie conduct population genomics research in Ireland, sequencing the genomes of 45,000 volunteers to assess several types of immune-mediated diseases, neurological disorders and cancer.

Dr Michael Severino, executive vice-president for research and development and chief scientific officer at AbbVie, said: "Combining the strengths of AbbVie's discovery and development expertise and novel research from external partners will accelerate the pace of innovation into new medicines for the next-generation of medical treatment."
