Aiming to solve a major public health issue.
Among the 300 million women around the world currently infected with HPV, 500,000 new cases of cervical cancer are identified each year and 275,000 women succumb to the disease. 70% of cervical cancer cases are caused by 2 HPV types and Genticel aims to eliminate them at an early stage with GTL001 (known in Europe as ProCervix), its first-in-class immunotherapeutic vaccine candidate. The Company has already completed patient recruitment for ProCervix's phase 2 clinical trial.
Offering a promising technological platform.
Genticel's versatile platform, Vaxiclase, is ideally suited for the development of immunotherapies against multiple infectious or cancerous diseases. Genticel's second immunotherapeutic vaccine candidate, Multivalent HPV, targets the six most pertinent HPV types in terms of global epidemiology and was designed using the Vaxiclase platform. It is currently in preclinical development.Offering a promising technological platform.
Focusing on value creation.
ProCervix and Multivalent HPV could generate, respectively, over €1 billion and €2 billion per year in revenues. Genticel seeks to establish partnerships for these two immunotherapeutic products as of 2016/2017. The versatility of its technological platform, Vaxiclase, has generated significant interest in the pharmaceutical industry, as illustrated by the partnership agreement signed in 2015 with the Serum Institute of India Ltd. (SIIL), the world's largest producer of vaccines. This partnership is expected to generate $57 million in revenues for Genticel, before royalties on sales. It will enable SIIL to develop acellular multivalent combination vaccines against a variety of conditions, notably whooping cough.
