Martinsried/Munich, March 24, 2021

Leukocare AG and Formycon AG (ISIN: DE000A1EWVY8/ WKN: A1EWVY) today announced a collaboration in the area of high-quality biopharmaceuticals. Under the terms of this agreement, Leukocare will apply its formulation development technologies combining state-of-the art protein analytics, bioinformatics and artificial intelligence to develop stable formulations potentially for several candidates in Formycon’s product pipeline. The first project has been started and covers the formulation development for a biosimilar of a blockbuster therapeutic antibody.

By applying Leukocare’s formulation and bioinformatics expertise to Formycon’s comprehensive development knowhow, the partners want to achieve superior stability profiles overall leading to additional value propositions for development projects.

Michael Scholl, Chief Executive Officer at Leukocare, commented, “We are very proud of this partnership with Formycon, a world-leading developer of high-quality biosimilars and biopharmaceuticals. This collaboration is a perfect fit for both companies to drive the development of high-quality products.”

Andreas Seidl, Chief Operating Officer of Leukocare, added, “Our algorithm-based formulation development expertise will allow Formycon to make use of a large formulation design space, thereby gaining manifold options for freedom to operate in a competitive environment. This will strongly support Formycon in providing high-quality medicines to as many patients as possible.”

Stefan Glombitza, Chief Operating Officer at Formycon, stated, “Suitable Drug Product formulations are an essential success factor in the development of biopharmaceutical drugs and are getting increasingly important in the competitive IP landscape. We are convinced that Leukocare’s technology platform can successfully complement our development expertise and look very much forward to our collaboration.”
