Enterprise News

Recently, Qingdao Primedicine Pharmaceutical Technology Co. Ltd. (hereafter referred as "Primedicine Pharmaceutical") announced that it has obtained the exclusive authorization in China for an innovative polypeptide medicine for treating myocardial infarction from Canada's Primary Peptides Inc (hereafter referred as Primary Peptides). As per the terms of the agreement, Primedicine Pharmaceutical has obtained the exclusive right to develop and commercialize the medicine in China (including Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan), while Primary Peptides reserves the right in other markets. Both parties did not disclose any specific financial term.

"We are delighted to cooperate with Primary Peptides." said Mr. Yan Yi, CEO of Primedicine Pharmaceutical. "As a leader in developing innovative polypeptide medicine, Primary Peptides is a world-class biotechnological company established by renowned scientists. This cooperation offers a precious opportunity for Primedicine Pharmaceutical to bring Canada's cutting-edge research achievements to China. Once the development is successful, it will be of immense benefit to thousands of patients suffering from myocardial infarction. At present, the pharmacodynamic model evaluation of the drug on myocardial infarction in rats, mice, and Bama pigs has been completed.The results indicate a significant protective effect on myocardial cells and reduction in the damaged heart area after myocardial infarction. As the PMS-004 project in the company's product assembly line, we will officially launch the preclinical research of the medicine in the second half of 2020. "

Mr. Max Cynader, the CEO of Primary Peptides said, "Although there are some medicine that already exist in the market for treating myocardial infarction, most of them act by dilating or unblocking blood vessels, and have no protective effect on myocardial cells. So they fail to alleviate myocardial cell death and functional damage caused by myocardial infarction. Our polypeptide drug works to prevent the activation of the JNK pathway and greatly reduces myocardial cell death caused by myocardial ischemia. Its myocardial protection function is unique, and is not present in currently marketed vasodilators. Myocardial protection after myocardial infarction represents an urgent medical need that needs to be resolved. Hence, this medicine has the potential to be a blockbuster. "
