Medicilon Assists Gluetacs Therapeutics' second molecular rubber pipeline line GT929 achieves dual filing and batching in China and US

Page View:

On October 27, Gluetacs Therapeutics’ second Class 1 new drug, GT929 capsule, in its molecular glue degrader pipeline, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to enter clinical trials for the treatment of malignant hematological tumors.

This pipeline has previously been approved by the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) to conduct clinical trials on July 24, 2023, and is expected to enroll the first patient in China's Phase I clinical study at the end of 2023.

This is the second product pipeline of Gluetacs Therapeutics to be approved for clinical trials in both China and the United States after GT919, which is another milestone in the globalization process of Gluetacs Therapeutics.

GT919 and GT929 are experimental drugs used in Phase I clinical studies

As a strategic partner of Gluetacs Therapeutics, Shanghai Medicilon Inc. (Medicilon) provided formulation research and preclinical research (including efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and safety evaluation) for the development of GT929, as well as preparing filing application materials in Chinese and English.  This help to provide technical support for GT929 to quickly achieve dual declaration and batch approval in China and the United States!

Another successful case of dual declaration between China and the United States Medicilon’s one-stop shop helps innovative drugs travel

Dual-declaration in China and the United States has enabled the transnational development of innovative drugs such as Gluetacs Therapeutics's GT919 and GT929, and has also become an important opportunity for Chinese pharmaceutical companies to go international.  Laboratories with GLP qualifications dual-reported by China and the United States play a key role in non-clinical drug research.  As one of the earliest CRO companies in China to provide a complete set of new drug clinical research applications that comply with both Chinese GLP and US GLP standards, Medicilon now has a GLP laboratory of 29,000 square meters.  At the same time, Medicilon has established the Provantis GLP Tox data collection system, EMPOWER data collection management system, Chromeleon chromatography data system, and LIMS system in accordance with international standards to strengthen the standardization and traceability of the research process to strengthen the standardization and traceability of the research process, and apply SEND format to process data to ensure that clinical research applications meet FDA requirements.

In the first half of 2023, 45 new drugs and generic drug projects that Medicilon participated in the research and development have been approved by the NMPA to enter clinical trials, and 10 have been approved by the US FDA to enter clinical trials. (Data comes from Medicilon’s 2023 semi-annual report) As Medicilon participates in an increasing number of projects that comply with the requirements of China-US dual reporting standards, research data and practical experience continue to accumulate, which has become one of Medicilon's core competitive advantages.
