Sorrento acquires lymphatic delivery technology platform from Kimberly-Clark
05 July 2018
Sorrento Therapeutics has acquired Kimberly-Clark’s Sofusa lymphatic delivery technology platform for targeted biopharmaceuticals, particularly, the immune checkpoint inhibitors like anti-PD-1, CTLA4, CD47 antibodies and other I-O antibodies.
Kimberly-Clark's Sofusa technology consists of proprietary nano-structured microneedles designed to access the lymphatic capillaries just below the epidermis. In a recent Phase I human study, the Sofusa system has successfully demonstrated the ability to precisely tune the pharmacokinetic profile of sumatriptan to give both rapid onset and an extended treatment duration for the acute treatment of migraine.
Sorrento chief medical officer Jerry Zeldis said: “Delivering higher drug concentrations via the lymphatics could provide more direct and sustained exposure to therapeutic targets known to modulate immune responses. We believe this has the potential to result in an improved safety and efficacy profile for checkpoint inhibitors and anti-inflammatory agents. Sorrento is now well positioned to becoming a leader in the immunotherapy field and fulfill our mission to develop best-in-class antibodies for patients.”
