Our CEO, Jenny (Seungyun) Jo, will participate in an interactive speaker panel along with representatives from Eli Lilly and Quintiles. The session will cover bringing novel drugs from lower regulated territories, such as South Korea and China, to higher regulated territories.

Session Title

Reverse Innovation: Challenges in Making Drug Development a Two-Way Street

Session Description

Increasingly, companies in the emerging markets are conducting drug discovery to address local health needs. Helping to fuel this innovation are government investment in R&D and facilities, policy changes that favor regulatory review of novel products instead of approving the “nth” generic, and stronger IP protection. When novel, patented products achieve commercialization first in emerging markets, the innovators may try to attract foreign licensees, or may be approached by specialty pharmas looking to secure developed market rights to these low-risk assets. The session will examine this “reverse innovation” that’s moving novel products to – not from – advanced economies and the regulatory hurdles that are constricting this reverse new product flow.

The product is currently in a multi-country Phase III clinical trial to assess its efficacy and safety in treating newly diagnosed CML patients as first-line therapy.

Jenny (Seungyun) Jo, CEO of Mocuis, stated, “Because of the emergence of resistance and intolerance to the first tyrosine kinase inhibitor, there is a constant need to develop novel products to treat Ph+ CML that are both effective and safe.
