Kite Acquires Rights to Certain Teneobio Antibodies for Multiple Myeloma CAR-T Therapies (including BCMA)

On Thursday April 2, Kite (a Gilead company) announced that it had entered into a license and collaboration agreement with Teneobio, granting Kite exclusive rights to specific antibodies targeting BCMA in multiple myeloma.
