Cellective Therapeutics, Inc. Company
Cellective Therapeutics was founded with technology created by Dr. Tom Tedder, a recognized world leader in B-cell biology and Chairman of the Department of Immunology at Duke University. Dr. Tedder's team focused on research done in B cells, cells that form an important component of the normal immune system and are hyperactive in people with autoimmune disorders. This hyperactivity of B cells can cause tissue inflammation and organ system dysfunction. With autoimmune diseases like lupus, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, the body actually rejects itself, as if organs were transplanted from someone else. Cellective's research focuses on monoclonal antibodies, which, with the company's technology, can be developed so specifically that they block the root causes of autoimmunity without interfering with the body's normal response to infections.
