Who We Are
Zymeworks is an innovative, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of next-generation multifunctional biotherapeutics, initially focused on the treatment of cancer. Our suite of complementary therapeutic platforms and our fully integrated drug development engine provide the flexibility and compatibility to precisely engineer and develop highly-differentiated product candidates. These capabilities have resulted in multiple wholly-owned product candidates with the potential to drive superior outcomes in large underserved and unaddressed patient populations.
Our lead product candidate, ZW25, is a novel bispecific (dual-targeting) antibody currently being evaluated in a Phase 2 clinical trial, targeting two distinct domains of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2, or HER2, a protein that promotes the growth of cancer cells. Our second product candidate, ZW49, a novel bispecific antibody drug conjugate (ADC) is being evaluated in a Phase 1 clinical trial.
In addition to our wholly-owned pipeline, two of our therapeutic platforms have been further leveraged through multiple revenue-generating strategic partnerships with the following global pharmaceutical companies: Merck, Eli Lilly, Celgene, GSK, Daiichi Sankyo, Johnson & Johnson, LEO Pharma, BeiGene, and Iconic Therapeutics.
