The Hamburg-based company, which is dedicated to development, registration, manufacturing and licensing/distribution of oncology generics, used CPhI 2015 to introduce its New Generic products.
It announced that Imatinib, a generic version of Gleevec /Glivec, will receive marketing authorization in Germany as well as other European territories soon, ready to go to market next year, after patent expiry. It also announced that Sunitinib is now in advanced development, targeting to apply marketing authorisations within 2016, ready to launch in Europe after patent expiry in 2021 and to support commercial supplies into markets where no patent is applying.
Zero loss facility
There was great interest among many visitors about the company’s new “Zero Loss” facility to manufacture oncology generics and antibody drug conjugates (ADCs). The facility is a major innovation for the pharma industry, using totally robotic controlled filling processes for parenteral cytotoxics.
“CPhI 2015 was really successful for us,” commented AqVida CEO and founder Wolfgang Heinze.
“We made many new and interesting contacts and consolidated many of our established partner relationships.”
“Many of our conversations at the show were about our current product portfolio of onco-generics, but there was also great interest in our new developments like Imatinib and Sunitinib, which will both fill significant gaps in the market.”
“CPhI is a key platform in our field of oncology and we are looking forward to attending next year’s show in Barcelona, where we will again be an exhibitor,” Mr. Heinze added.
