Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. is a publicly-traded, development-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the acquisition, discovery, development and commercialization of novel and proprietary biotherapeutics for the treatment of a variety of disease conditions, including cancer, inflammation, metabolic and infectious diseases. STI’s objective is to identify drug development candidates derived from its proprietary human antibody libraries and, either independently or through partnerships, advance selected targets into preclinical or clinical development.
