Complix is a biopharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of novel biotherapeutics, called Alphabodies™, mainly focused on oncology and autoimmune diseases.
Alphabodies are a revolutionary class of protein therapeutics that have the potential to address a wide range of disease targets, in particular intracellular targets that are considered undruggable by current drug formats, such as antibodies or small chemicals.
Complix is building a portfolio of Alphabody based therapeutics that act on a variety of intractable intracellular targets and is working in collaboration with pharma companies to create novel first-in-class therapeutics that have the potential to cure severe diseases with high medical need, including cancer. In December 2015 Complix signed a strategic collaboration with Merck & Co to develop novel Alphabody based therapeutics against two intracellular cancer targets. Under the terms of this deal Complix will be eligible to receive up to $280 million in upfront and development and regulatory milestones as well as tiered mid-single digit royalties on global sales revenues.
Complix NV (Belgium) and its affiliate Complix SA (Luxembourg) have established a strong intellectual property position protecting the Alphabody™ platform and its emerging product portfolio through the filing of multiple broad patent applications. Since its founding in 2008 Complix has raised a total of more than €20 million in venture financing, including a €12 million B round in June 2013 and a €7 million Series A equity round in 2010.
