Private Company Edition: Arbor is developing drugs based on proprietary gene editors, Acrivon is applying proteomics to precision cancer therapies, and bit.bio is producing differentiated cell products. Also, Marengo launches with $80m, Sanofi invests up to $60m in Gyroscope and Shasqi raises $50m.
Consolidation and acquisitions among contract manufacturers of cell and gene therapies is a growing trend, as Catalent acquires Belgium- and US-based MaSTherCell Global for $315m, and other cell and gene therapy manufacturers address capacity shortages.
Although there was no major acquisition starting out the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, the deal-making flow has been steady. Pfizer licensed a neurodegenerative disease candidate to Biogen, while also selling Axsome rights to reboxetine in narcolepsy and fibromyalgia. Biogen signed a neurology R&D collaboration with CAMP4 as well.
Having signed a multi-year, multi-target agreement with Lilly worth potentially $550m, Atomwise CEO Abe Heifets tells Scrip the burden of proof is on AI practitioners to start producing relevant and actionable data.
