Our ambition is to become a world leader in activation and regulation immunotherapies
OSE Immunotherapeutics is a biotechnology company led by world-class immunologists and focused on the development of innovative immunotherapies for immune activation and regulation in the fields of immuno-oncology, auto-immune diseases and transplantation.

The company has a balanced portfolio of first-in-class products with a diversified risk profile ranging from clinical phase 3 registration trials to R&D:

  • FR104, CD28-antagonist in immunotherapy - Phase 1 trial completed -targets autoimmune diseases and transplantation - licensed to J&J to pursue clinical development
  • Effi-7, interleukin receptor 7 antagonist - in preclinical development for inflammatory bowel diseasesand other autoimmune diseases
  • Effi-DEM, new generation checkpoint inhibitor targeting the SIRP-α receptor on the strategic SIRP-α/CD47 pathway - in preclinical development for immuno-oncology
  • R&D: candidates targeting new receptors in immuno-oncology

The portfolio’s blockbuster potential gives OSE Immunotherapeutics the ability to enter into global agreements at different stages of development with major pharmaceutical players, such as the one signed for FR104 with the J&J Group.

Immunotherapy is a highly promising and growing market. By 2023 Immunotherapy of cancer could represent nearly 60% of treatments against less than 3% at present * and the projected market is estimated at $67 billion in 2018 **.

There are more than 80 autoimmune diseases that represent a significant market including major players in the pharmaceutical industry with sales upper $10 billion for the main products. The medical need is largely unmet and requires the provision of new innovative products involved in the regulation of the immune system.
