In April 2017, Celgene Corporation (Nasdaq: CELG) entered into a long-term partnership with Antengene by licensing rights to develop, manufacture and commercialize its TORC1/2 kinase inhibitor, CC-223 (ATG-008 for Antengene), in East and Southeast Asia.
This marks the first licensing deal for Celgene in the Asia-Pacific region, creates the foundation for a strategic partnership between the two companies and embodies the beginning of a long-term collaboration.
In May 2018, Antengene started a broad strategic partnership with Karyopharm Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: KPTI) to develop, manufacture and commercialize four of Karyopharm’s novel, first-in-class, clinical-stage oral drug candidates in multiple countries/regions in Asia.
This strategic partnership brings promising product candidates to our pipeline. We will continue to broaden our development in multiple disease areas, with a focus in oncology and influenza.
