About XOMA Corporation
XOMA Corporation is a leader in the discovery and development of therapeutic antibodies. The Company's innovative product candidates are the result of its expertise in developing ground-breaking monoclonal antibodies, which have created new opportunities to potentially treat a wide range of human diseases. XOMA is developing gevokizumab (IL-1 beta modulating antibody) in a Phase 3 clinical study of pyoderma gangrenosum, a rare ulcerative skin disease. Additionally, XOMA's scientific research has produced the XMet platform, which consists of separate classes of Selective Insulin Receptor Modulators (SIRMs) antibodies. XOMA 358, the lead antibody in the XMetD program, is a monoclonal antibody that reduces both the binding of insulin to its receptor and down-regulates insulin signaling and could have a major effect on the treatment of abnormal metabolic states. XOMA 358 recently completed Phase 1 testing and Phase 2 clinical trials in two hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemic indications are expected to launch in 2015. XOMA also has a library of compounds to advance in clinical development or license to a pharmaceutical partner, including XOMA 089, a novel anti-TGFβ monoclonal antibody that could be a significant advancement in immuno-oncology, and XMetA, which could replace long-acting insulin.
