WIND: Bridging the Pacific Gap to Accelerate Preclinical Drug Development

Posted by WuXi AppTec Industry Expert on May 16, 2018 3:47:31 PM

In the last few years, China has seen a major boom in innovative drug development, and the pharmaceutical industry in China has been rapidly transitioning from a generic drug-focused industry to an innovative drug development industry. This is partly fueled by a wave of "returnees” –  Chinese-born scientists who were trained in the West and then migrated back to China to help jump start the life science industry in China. It is also attributed to the fundamental cultural change at the China FDA (CFDA), which has implemented a series of policies to improve drug development data quality and drug quality and reward innovation. As a result, several China-based biotech companies have discovered a number of world-class innovative drug candidates that have been licensed by several global companies – one example is Nanjing Legand’s CAR-T therapy that was licensed by Johnson & Johnson for $350 million upfront.
