Suzhou Porton Advanced Solutions Ltd. and Guizhou Sinorda Biomedicine Co. Ltd. announced a long-term strategic relationship in cell and gene therapy research and development and platform development.
Porton Advanced provides plasmids, cell therapy, gene therapy, oncolytic virus, mRNA treatment, and bacterial therapy as part of an end-to-end gene and cell therapy CDMO service platform. Sinorda Biomedicine focuses on the R&D of revolutionary drugs for digestive tract disorders, tumor immunotherapy, and oncolytic virus therapy and has multiple new drug projects in the clinical stage, thanks to its extensive expertise in domestic and international new drug filing. Jiangsu Tairui Sinorda Biomedicine Pharmaceutical Technology Co. Ltd., a subsidiary, conducts pre-clinical and clinical research on tumor immune pharmacology and efficacy.
Under the terms of the agreement, Porton Advanced will help Sinorda Biomedicine speed up the development, production, and registration of breakthrough cell therapies, such as its T-cell immunotherapy product for colorectal cancer, SND002 and other pipelines. Sinorda Biomedicine will partner with Porton Advanced to support its cell and gene therapy R&D and production.
The first collaborative initiative, SND002, has been approved for Phase II clinical trials in Europe. The product had previously been recognized by the Chinese National Science and Technology Major Project for "the Breakthrough New Drugs." The beginning of this key initial initiative allows Porton Advanced and Sinorda to combine resources and expertise, promising increased synergy in the clinical development and approval of Sinorda's SLN-T program.
"Sinorda Biomedicine has a proven track record in drug development in China, US and Europe. The company possesses great expertise in immunology and oncolytic viruses, as well as cutting-edge immune functional assays, technologies, and capabilities. I am excited to see how our end-to-end cell and gene therapy CDMO platforms and quality systems can complement these capabilities and enhance Sinorda's pipeline. Supporting Sinorda's development, production and regulatory filing and accelerating its cell therapy drugs to market is a great cause and a great opportunity. We look forward to the opportunity to help Sinorda establish advanced therapies that benefit patients globally."
