Leading the way with our pioneering vaccines


VB10.16, Nykode’s wholly owned lead candidate, is a potentially first-in-class off-the-shelf therapeutic cancer vaccine candidate in development for the treatment of human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16)-positive cancers. The cancer vaccine is designed based on Nykode’s Vaccibody™ technology platform of targeting antigens to antigen presenting cells.


The cancer neoantigen vaccine, VB10.NEO, is one of our lead product candidates and is exclusively out-licensed to Genentech, a member of the Roche Group. It is currently in a Phase 1b trial for the treatment of locally advanced and metastatic tumors.

Empowered by our long-standing partnerships

In our mission to bring our discoveries to the people who need them, we are proud to collaborate with world-class organizations. In oncology, our partners are Roche and Genentech, and further, we have a multi-target collaboration with Regeneron within oncology and infectious diseases.
