About Celldex Theraputics
Celldex Therapeutics recruits highly motivated and talented people in order to build a strong and diverse workforce, which is working to develop targeted therapeutics to address devastating diseases for which available treatments are inadequate. Our pipeline of drug candidates is comprised of therapeutic antibodies, antibody drug conjugates, immune system modulators and vaccines that we believe have a higher probability of success because they are targeted to specific patient populations with high unmet medical need whose diseases express specific markers. This has created a leading pipeline in immunotherapy with seven company-led clinical trials across five product candidates, including a pivotal study in triple negative breast cancer and six Phase 1 and Phase 2 cancer immunotherapy combination trials in a range of difficult-to-treat indications, and a robust preclinical engine.
