Prestige Biopharma Obtains PBP1510 Patent in Indonesia, Marking the Tenth
SINGAPORE, November 10, 2022 – Prestige Biopharma Limited, a Singapore-based biopharmaceutical company specializing in antibody drug development, announced that the company has obtained a patent in Indonesia for PBP1510 (INN-ulenistamab), the company’s first-in-class anti-PAUF monoclonal antibody.
PBP1510 has thus far been patented in a total of ten countries including Indonesia, Korea, United States, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Russia, South Africa, Singapore, and Malaysia. In addition, it is currently under review for patent registration in 14 countries such as Canada and New Zealand.
Being a first-in-class anti-PAUF treatment, PBP1510 prevents the progression and metastasis of the cancer induced by PAUF (Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Up-regulated Factor) and creating a more responsive environment for antitumor immunotherapy. Thus, it is expected to provide significant benefit to patients suffering from PAUF-positive pancreatic cancer.
In 2020, PBP1510 was granted Orphan Drug Designation by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Korea Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS). Currently, it is undergoing phase 1/2a clinical trial in Europe and U.S.
