Opportunities with Crenolanib, an Oral Pan-FLT3 and PDGFR TKI
Crenolanib is an orally-administered, highly potent and selective mutation-resistant Type-1 pan-FLT3, PDGFRα, and PDGFRβ inhibitor with best-in-class potential in multiple oncology indications. Crenolanib has been evaluated and is continuing to be evaluated across sixteen phase I-II clinical trials in hundreds of patients, demonstrating promising clinical benefit and safety in multiple indications.
We are facilitating the development of crenolanib in China with Arog Pharmaceuticals, Inc, a U.S. based biotech who obtained global rights to crenolanib from Pfizer in 2010. JI (Shanghai) Biotech plans on participating in Arog’s global development plan by conducting local arms of its Ph. III studies in AML and, potentially, solid tumors (e.g., R/R Gastric Cancer, Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) and Glioblastoma).
To date, Arog has evaluated crenolanib across 16 Phase I-III trials in hundreds of patients in liquid and solid tumors, has has demonstrated promising clinical benefit and safety data across multiple indications to date.
Development Opportunities with Ocaratuzumab, a Next Generation CD-20 mAb
JI (Shanghai) Biotech also anticipates facilitating the development of ocaratuzumab, a next-generation anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody, in China. Ocaratuzumab is fully engineered and has compelling early data in the treatment of B-cell malignancies in clinical trials. Clinical trials for the treatment of non-oncology indications are also contemplated.
