Trubion was a publicly held biopharmaceutical company that was focused on creating a pipeline of protein-based therapeutic product candidates to treat autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and cancer. Trubion was acquired by Emergent BioSolutions on October 28, 2010. Trubion was established in 1999 in the State of Washington as an early stage development company, and was later reincorporated in October 2002 in the State of Delaware.

In December 2005, Trubion entered into a collaborative agreement with Wyeth for the development and worldwide commercialization of CD20-directed therapeutics. The agreement also included the development and worldwide commercialization of certain other product candidates directed to targets other than CD20. The research portion of Trubion’s contract with Wyeth extended through December 22, 2009.
