SAN DIEGO and FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. ("STI"; SRNE) and IGDRASOL announced today that IGDRASOL will be presenting updates of its development of Cynviloq™ (IG-001) at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in Washington, DC (April 6th to 10th). IGDRASOL is a privately-held company for which STI was granted an irrevocable option right to acquire. The two companies' combined pipeline features an oncology franchise of potential products with Phase 2 data for multiple solid tumor indications as well as two synergistic drug discovery and development platforms, namely the G-MAB® human antibody library and MABiT™, a proprietary technology to generate antibody formulated drug conjugates (AfDC).
Cynviloq™ (or IG-001) is a next-generation, branded, micellar diblock copolymeric paclitaxel formulation currently approved and marketed in several countries as Genexol-PM®. Cynviloq™ has completed Phase 1 or 2 trials in MBC, NSCLC, pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer and bladder cancer in the U.S. and/or non-U.S. IGDRASOL is preparing for an "End of Phase 2" meeting with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) targeted for the first half of 2013 regarding Cynviloq™. As an injectable nanoparticle formulation of paclitaxel, Cynviloq™ is potentially eligible for approval via FDA's 505(b)(2) bioequivalence regulatory pathway versus albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel; Abraxane®) in its currently approved MBC and NSCLC indications. Abraxane® sales exceeded $400 million in MBC in fiscal 2012.
The time, title, authors and location of the presentations are as follows:
- Mon, Apr 8, 1:00 - 5:00 PM (2141/10) – "IG-001 utilization of albumin mediated transport and its potential application in difficult to perfuse tumors." Kouros Motamed, Larn Hwang, Chao Hsiao, Vuong Trieu. IGDRASOL, Fountain Valley, CA. Poster Session, PO.ET01.03. Novel Targeted Therapies 1.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
