Immunotherapy & Vaccines

JPT Peptide Technologies possesses a variety of unique peptide based technologies allowing systematic and proteome spanning B- and T-cell biomarker discovery, immune monitoring and clinical development of immunotherapy and vaccines. Our tools and know-how are successfully used in various projects leading to novel approaches in indications such as cancer, infection, autoimmune disease and allergy.

In contrast to other approaches on the market, our technologies allow monitoring of individual epitope patterns as well as epitope spreading and address natural sequence diversity and post-translational modifications.

Why use peptides as antigens?

  • Neo-epitopes enable personalized therapies
  • Peptides ensure robust epitope-resolved immune monitoring
  • Only peptides allow the study of B- and T-cell epitope spreading
  • Peptides can be synthesized in high purities
  • Peptides allow proteome-wide target identification
  • No expression needed, ADCF policy applicable
  • Sequence diversity and post-translational modifications can be addressed
