iNtRON Biotechnology is delighted to announce that their Tech Transfer process for SAL200, a revolutionary endolysin-based biologic, is entering its final stage! This out-licensing and commercialization of SAL200 will include contract transfers of external studies, allowing for its successful implementation and worldwide distribution. With this move, iNtRON is paving the way for a future of revolutionary biologics.
The Company has worked hard to complete the Tech Transfer process, taking over the studies of external institutions that the previous partner had been conducting, as well as transferring a massive volume of data over the past three months. To ensure the clinical studies of SAL200 continue, the Company has renewed its contracts with the external institutions. Now, the transfer process is complete and the Company is ready to move forward.
The Tech Transfer process has been successful, with most materials, including the US FDA approved SAL200 IND related documents, secured – bar a few from the CRO. The subsequent studies are progressing as planned.
The clinical trial of SAL200 is being managed by US clinical experts, with follow-up studies conducted through external institutions in accordance with the transferred rights. These studies will help ensure the trial is conducted as planned.
The Company is committed to ensuring the successful out-licensing of SAL200, and has consequently focused on transferring related documents and studies from external institutions. With this process now nearly complete, the Company will soon be able to devote more of its attention to the out-licensing of SAL200, which will be supported by the data generated from follow-up studies.
Dr. KANG, Sang Hyeon, CTO of iNtRON, expressed his confidence in the strategy and clinical trial plan for SAL200, having been developed in consultation with clinical experts. He vowed to make every effort to secure the rights to external studies that will support the plan and to ensure that these efforts will ultimately lead to a successful out-licensing of SAL200.
