MAY 28, 2015
Hamburg, Germany: – Innovative German oncology development company, AqVida GmbH / Hamburg, will be among the elite of European drug developers registered to attend the prestige licensing and networking event EuroPLX during the first two days of June.
AqVida will use the event as a platform to meet new potential business partners for licensing its impressive oncology portfolio.
This includes oncology generic products like Imatinib, Oxaliplatin, Paclitaxel, Irinotecan, Docetaxel and Gemcitabine as well as its new generic generation like Sunitinib, now being manufactured in a non-patent-infringing territory.
Speed to market
AqVida will hope to capitalize on its distinctive ability to offer speed to market, with spare European licenses on offer for immediate transfer on its core portfolio of injectables. For instance it can offer German market approval (MA) by end 2015 for its Imatinib capsules currently under DCP/registration procedures. Additionally it can transfer immediately licenses of Docetaxel, Paclitaxel, Oxaliplatin, as well as offers licensing opportunities for Sunitinib capsules now in advanced development stage, ready for filing in Europe immediately at the expiration of the DEP (Data Exclusivity Period) mid 2016. The Sunitinib patent expires in 2021 in most European countries, with capability to supply markets prior to patent expire into countries where no patent applies, commencing January 2016. The active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and finished dosage form (FDFs) of Sunitinib is manufactured in a patent-free zone.
The AqVida team at EuroPLX will also be able to offer fast marketing on Docetaxel solution for 20mg/ml infusion, with 20 MAs granted throughout Europe, incl. 2x at EU-TOP5 status.
Oncology offers and opportunities
Jürgen Lehmberg, Commercial Director at AqVida, will lead the company’s team at EuroPLX.
“The EuroPLX partner conference is the ideal tool for networking, business development and licensing opportunities,” said Mr. Lehmberg.
In particular the pan-European and global scope of this event, with the opportunity to meet up to 100 potential business contacts within two days makes the EuroPLX an essential event for us,” he added.
AqVida is specialized and fully dedicated to development, manufacturing and licensing oncology FDFs.
Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, AqVida has been growing rapidly in recent years, with new capacity shortly to come on stream from a new, novel and innovative manufacturing site. This will increase the company’s capacity for outsourced development of new generics and biosimilars.
