Medicilon assists LX-132 capsule, a new-targeted anti-tumor drug developed by Salustier Biosciences, successfully obtained clinical approval for a Class I new drug.webp

Recently, LX-132 capsules, a new generation of irreversible kinase inhibitor independently developed by Salustier Biosciences, received a drug clinical trial approval notice from the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA).

As a long-term strategic partner of Salustier Biosciences, Shanghai Medicilon Inc. (Medicilon) has provided a full set of preclinical research services for the research and development of LX-132, and has made every effort to promote the high-quality and efficient completion of the project.

A new generation of kinase covalent inhibitor LX-132 Providing new hope and options for first-generation patients with reversible drug resistance.

LX-132 is a new generation of kinase covalent inhibitors. The irreversible binding mechanism is particularly suitable for tyrosine kinase inhibitors that need to compete with high intracellular concentrations of ATP while maintaining selectivity among 500+ kinase family members.  LX-132 can inhibit the activation of target proteins at a high level for a long time, and can minimize any off-target side effects mediated by reversible inhibitors, which is more suitable for use in common combination treatments in oncology.

Preclinical data show that LX-132 is significantly better than already marketed drugs with the same target, especially in various gastric cancer models.  LX-132 has demonstrated excellent biological activity at the molecular, cellular and animal levels, with high safety and good druggability, and can provide new hope and options for patients with first-generation reversible drug resistance.  Therefore, this project has huge potential value in the development of new anti-tumor drugs.  The completed product of this project is expected to be launched in 2028, which can bring annual revenue of RMB 1-3 billion and create tax revenue of RMB 100-300 million.  The future prospects are broad and the market potential is considerable.
