The firm boasts of a market value of approximately ten billion dollars with a staff of nearly one thousand employees.

Seattle Genetics headquarters has a green Lego bricks triangular-shaped sculpture which simplifies the human antibody. Since its foundation in 1998, Seattle Genetics centers on the study, manipulation, and packaging of antibodies into drugs. As the Lego bricks bind to other elements, so is the capability of Seattle Genetics’ antibodies to connect to therapies. The company designs antibodies that can deliver toxic levels of the drug to cancer cells thus destroying them from the inside. The design is one of the top ways that could make Seattle Genetics rise the ranks and reside among the big leagues.
Many analysts project that the company could turn into a big pharmaceutical industry. The sales of Adcetris would inevitably rise if the ongoing tests could produce positive results. Adcetris is Seattle’s flagship drug that finds use in the treatment of Hodgkin Lymphoma.
