With new and unique technologies and active substances, the biotech company MOLOGEN is one of the pioneers in the field of immunotherapy. Alongside a focus on immuno-oncology, MOLOGEN also develops immunotherapies for the treatment of infectious diseases. 

The cancer immunotherapy MGN1703 is the company’s lead product and best-in-class TLR9 agonist. Treatment with MGN1703 triggers a broad and strong activation of the immune system. Due to this mechanism of action, MGN1703 has the potential to be applied to various indications. MGN1703 is currently being developed for first-line maintenance treatment of colorectal cancer (pivotal study) and small cell lung cancer (randomized controlled trial). Furthermore it is also being investigated in a phase I study in HIV. 

MOLOGEN’s pipeline focus is on new innovative immunotherapies to treat diseases for which there is a high medical need.
