3SBio Signs License Agreement with Jenkem Technology
Sep 17 14
3SBio Inc. has signed an exclusive license agreement with JenKem Technology Co. Ltd. The contract has been signed for the development, manufacturing and marketing in Mainland China of PEG-irinotecan, a long-acting polymer-drug conjugate that inhibits topoisomerase I (Topo-I). Researchers from JenKem produced PEG-irinotecan to treat Topo-I over-expressed cancers. JenKem's PEG-irinotecan indicated significant effects on tumour repression and toxicity in several in vivo tumour models, suggesting it is likely to have the potential to suppress tumour growth throughout the entire chemotherapy cycle.
3SBio Inc. Signs Exclusive Patent License Agreement with DiNonA Inc. for Leukotuximab
Aug 8 14
3SBio Inc. announced it has entered into an exclusive license with DiNonA Inc. for the development, manufacturing and marketing of Leukotuximab, an anti JL-1 antibody for acute leukemia (AL), including acute myelocytic leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), in the territory of Greater China (including Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau) and the Middle East (excluding Cyprus, Egypt, Israel and Turkey). In addition to an upfront payment, milestone payments will be made after completion of technology transfer, approval of Investigational New Drug (IND) application by the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA), completions of Phase I to Phase III clinical trials and marketing approval in China. 3SBio will also pay DiNonA a sales-based royalty. Additional terms of the license are not being disclosed. The incidence rate for AML is 1.6 per 100,000 annually; the incidence rate for ALL is 0.4 per 100,000 annually. In China, there are about two to three million existing AL patients. Among them, between 30,000 and 40,000 patients are newly diagnosed each year. Patients are currently treated with traditional chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant, both of which have major side effects. Researchers from DiNonA have developed Leukotuximab, an anti-leukemic agent for JL-1+ acute leukemia. This antibody is targeting JL-1 Ag, an epitope of human CD43 extracellular domain. JL-1 is expressed on tumor cells of T, B, and myeloid lineages in more than 80% of acute leukemia patients, but not on mature peripheral blood cells or other normal tissues. Since the expression of JL-1 is highly associated with hematopoietic malignancies and is selectively expressed on the surface of human leukemic cells, anti-JL-1 mAb can be an excellent targeted reagent for treatment of the leukemia. Leukotuximab showed significant improvement in survival in leukemia animal models. Also, no evidence of toxicity was observed in study animals. An open label and dose-escalating Phase I clinical trial in Korea started at June 2014 and is expected to finish in late 2015.
Selecta Biosciences Inc Enters into Exclusive License Agreement with 3SBio to Develop Drug Candidate to Treat Gout
Jun 17 14
Selecta Biosciences Inc. announced it has entered into an exclusive license with 3SBio for pegsiticase (Uricase PEG-20), a pegylated recombinant uricase from candida utilis. Pegsiticase has shown the ability to efficiently reduce plasma uric acid levels in gout patients in successful U.S. Phase 1 clinical tests. The exclusive license enables Selecta to develop pegsiticase in patients with refractory and tophaceous gout and apply its immunomodulatory Synthetic Vaccine Particle (SVP) platform to optimize the safety and efficacy profile for patients at risk of immunogenicity. SEL-212 is a novel product that combines Selecta's proprietary SVP with 3SBio's pegsiticase and is designed to be the first non-immunogenic version of uricase. Selecta will work with 3SBio to advance pegsiticase-based therapeutics as potential treatments for refractory and tophaceous gout as well as tumor lysis syndrome, with the ultimate goal of expeditiously moving toward regulatory approvals. Selecta and 3SBio have agreed to work together to achieve clinical proof of concept for SEL-212 and pegsiticase in human clinical trials in their territories; Selecta's territory includes US and all of Europe. Proof-of-concept clinical studies are expected to be initiated in 2015. Additional terms of the exclusive license granted by 3SBio to Selecta are not being disclosed.
