“Our cutting edge science and passion for innovation are at Genmab’s core. We are very excited to provide an update on the robust progress with our world-class innovative pipeline, as well as introducing HexElect, our novel next generation antibody therapeutics platform. This technology has been inspired by Genmab’s HexaBody technology and unlocks potency by making the action of two HexaBody molecules dependent on binding to two different targets on the same cell.  The technology has the potential to create leap-frog cancer therapeutic products with unprecedented efficacy and selectivity,” said Jan van de Winkel, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Genmab.
