Good news for Asian cancer patients - CANbridge Life Sciences and Azaya Therapeutics will develop and commercialize a liposomal formulation of docetaxel
Singapore: CANbridge Life Sciences entered into a deal with US-based Azaya Therapeutics, to develop and commercialize the latter's investigational drug, ATI-1123
CANbridge, which is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing Western drug candidates in China and North Asia, will use the drug for treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and potentially other solid tumor cancer indications, in China and North Asia.
ATI-1123, a liposomal formulation of docetaxel, has completed a FDA-approved phase I trial in 29 patients with solid tumor cancers who had failed on other therapies. Phase II trials in the US are planned in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), gastric cancer, pancreatic cancer and soft-tissue sarcoma.
