About IGM Biosciences, Inc.

IGM Biosciences (Nasdaq: IGMS) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company committed to developing and delivering a new class of medicines to treat patients with cancer, infectious diseases, and autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. The Company’s pipeline of clinical and preclinical assets is based on the IgM antibody, which has 10 binding sites compared to conventional IgG antibodies with only 2 binding sites. We have created a proprietary IgM antibody technology platform that we believe is particularly well suited for developing T cell engagers, receptor cross-linking agonists, targeted cytokines, and target neutralizers. The Company also has an exclusive worldwide collaboration agreement with Sanofi to create, develop, manufacture, and commercialize IgM antibody agonists against oncology and immunology, and inflammation targets.

IgM Antibodies and Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases

Antibody treatments have revolutionized outcomes for patients with autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, and IgMs are the first antibody defense against a pathogen infection.  We are committed to exploring how the unique structure and binding properties of our IgM platform can improve outcomes for patients with these serious conditions.
