argenx (Euronext & Nasdaq: ARGX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing a deep pipeline of differentiated antibody-based therapies for the treatment of severe autoimmune diseases and cancer, today announced its fourth quarter business update and full year results for 2018.

The full year results will be discussed during a conference call and webcast presentation today at 3 pm CET/9 am EST. To participate in the conference call, please select your phone number below and use the confirmation code 9795988. The webcast may be accessed on the homepage of the argenx website at or by clicking here.

“By translating fundamental immunology breakthroughs into novel product candidates, we have built a robust pipeline of differentiated antibodies with the potential to truly impact patients' lives,” commented Tim Van Hauwermeiren, CEO of argenx. “We made great progress in 2018 with our wholly owned lead asset efgartigimod, advancing development across four severe autoimmune indications, in both intravenous and subcutaneous formulations. We signed a transformational global collaboration and license agreement with Janssen to develop cusatuzumab in AML while retaining key commercial rights to the product in the U.S. We also announced that AbbVie exercised its option to in-license ARGX-115 targeting GARP.

“Based on our deep and diversified product candidate portfolio, a solid cash position and an ambitious business plan we are facing an abundance of opportunity ahead in 2019. We will continue to build out our novel pipeline through our Innovative Access Program and our commercial capabilities as we drive enrollment of the Phase 3 ADAPT trial of efgartigimod in gMG and plan for the start of a second Phase 3 trial in ITP.”
