Sinphar strikes Taiwan anticancer deal

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The Taiwanese firm Sinphar Pharmaceutical has licensed two early-stage anticancer compounds from Taiwan's National Health Research Institutes. The preclinical stage small molecules act to block vascular and cell proliferation and have shown signs of activity in various cancers including cervical, gastric, colorectal and nasopharyngeal, the partners said. Sinphar, a diversified healthcare group, already markets a generic version of paclitaxel and plans to begin clinical trials with the compounds within the next two years. It recently set up a new domestic biotech subsidiary to discover and develop new drugs and seek further alliances.
