Shanghai, December 15, 2023 - The pre-formulation team of BioDuro-Sundia Formulation Department has been awarded the "2023 Outstanding Contribution Award" for its outstanding performance in Asieris' new drug R&D programs. Thanks to BioDuro-Sundia’s technical expertise and quality service during 2023, we are honored to receive recognition from our valued client this year.

Asieris Pharmaceuticals is a global biopharma company specializing in discovery, development, and commercialization of innovative drugs for the treatment of genitourinary tumors and other related diseases. This year, the company's core products under development, APL-1706, APL-1702 and APL-1202, have each achieved several positive clinical results. Recently, the New Drug Application (NDA) for APL-1706 (Hexvix®), a drug for the diagnosis and management of bladder cancer, has been formally accepted by the National Medicinal Products Administration (NMPA). APL-1702 (Cevira®) successfully met its primary endpoint during its multinational Phase III clinical trial and is expected to be the world's first non-surgical product with proven efficacy against cervical HSIL. APL-1202 (Vesique®) is the first oral targeted therapy for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) to enter multinational pivotal/phase III clinical trials.
