Human antibodies are at the heart of everything Seattle Genetics has been researching, manipulating and, eventually, packaging into medications since its inception in 1998. Just like Lego bricks, the influence of the antibodies of the company lies in their ability to bond with something else. The antibody supplies a toxic load into cancer cell to crush it from within. It is a strategy that can shoot Seattle Genetics into the great leagues.
Enjoying a market value of almost 10 billion dollars and a list of 900 members of staff, Seattle Genetics ranks as the most prominent biotech in the state of Washington.

Pointing to the long list of medications in the company’s pipeline Siegal says that that’s enough evidence to show his desire to create a great firm rather than selling it to a more prominent corporation the way most of the biotech companies do.
