Kinex Pharmaceuticals Licenses Patents from Hong Kong Polytechnic University and McGill University
Feb 13 15
Kinex Pharmaceuticals announced the exclusive licensing of global rights of three patents from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and McGill University. These three patents covered the inventions by Professor Larry Chow and Professor William Chan including novel new chemical compounds that have nanomolar potency against a molecular target named Breast Cancer Resistance Protein (BCRP). BCRP is a protein pump known to pump drugs, including anticancer drugs, from cancer cells that can lead to drug resistance; and also to pump drugs back into gastrointestinal tract, which prevent some useful drugs to be delivered to their target. The development of this technology, if successful, will expand the current Kinex oral drug absorption development platform. That platform currently includes the inhibition of P-glycoprotein that Kinex licensed from Hanmi in 2011. The lead molecule, HM30181A, has been shown in clinical studies to enhance the absorption of anticancer drugs including paclitaxel and irinotecan into orally available drugs. The lead program, Oraxol (an oral form of paclitaxel), has demonstrated clinical efficacy and an excellent safety profile in patient studies. Kinex is also actively developing other proprietary oral drug delivery platforms. The addition of another oral absorption delivery technology platform will further strengthen Kinex's arsenal of converting greater classes of intravenous drugs into oral versions. The terms of this exclusive license include upfront payments, milestones and royalties. Kinex is also committing to support research programs in Professor Larry Chow's laboratory to further develop this platform collaboratively with Kinex.
Advanced Biological Laboratories, The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Decide to Join Forces to Develop a Deep-Sequencing Tuberculosis Solution
Oct 14 14
Advanced Biological Laboratories (ABL), S.A, The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University announced the launching their collaborative tuberculosis (TB) project to develop a deep-sequencing assay and its tailored bio-informatics pipeline. This aims to enable early and improved diagnosis of TB when there is an increasingly drug resistant strains of TB emerging world-wide with multi-drug resistance. Under the terms of agreement, The University of Hong Kong will provide data and knowledge, while The Hong Kong Polytechnic University will insure the TB assay development required to perform NGS sequencing. This assay will be used in combination with the DeepChek(R) Tuberculosis software application. These will be validated with retrospective and prospective clinical specimens. ABL will optimize its DeepChek(R) platform technology for this TB assay with whole genome sequencing data analysis and other TB specificities. Other terms of the agreement are not disclosed.
