|12/13/18||GEM053||Substance for covering oral lesions (no active ingredients: medical device)||Control and relief pain of oral mucositis by chemotherapy/ radiotherapy||Local||Launch||There is no standard treatment for chemo/radiotherapy induced mucositis–high unmet medical needs.
Forms a mucoadhesive barrier film when applied in the oral cavity. Excellent control of oral pain (rapid and long-lasting effects and ready to use)
Can be licened to Korea.
|12/13/18||GEM052||Mitochondria-targeted apotosis inducer||Please refer to Note||IV||Phase 2||Indication: Relapsed/Refractory Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma (PTCL) and other hematological cancers
Note: No approved drugs for PTCL indication in Europe (3 drugs have been approved in Japan and US).
Less toxic compared with competitors approved in Japan and US.
US Phase 2a: 5 responders in 11 refractory PTCL and DLBCL patients, and 2 responders in 7 PTCL patients. Applicable to relapsed and refractory PTCL.
Phase 2 Pan-Asia pivotal study is ongoing.
Can be licensed to US/EU and China.
|12/10/18||GEM051||Protective agents from heat stress||Heatstroke||Oral||Preclinical||Suppression of vascular endothelial cell damage and production and release of inflammatory cytokines from blood cells due to heat stress.
Ingredients derived from citrus fruit extract.
|11/22/18||GEM050||Curcumin analogue||CML, Pancreatic cancer, glioblastoma etc.||Oral||Preclinical||Inhibited proliferation of CML and pancreatic cancer cells at the submicromolar level.
Unlike imatinib, the inhibitory action is irreversible.
Suppressed almost completely human CML cell growth without significant changes in body weight and peripheral white blood cell count in vivo.
An incease in ROS/RCS produced by inhibition of their scavenging enzymes is assumed to be involved in anti-tumor action.
Induced M phase arrest.
|11/15/18||GEM049||Pan-NOX inhibitor||IBD, Neuro- degenerative diseases||Oral||Preclinical||Highly potent NOX inhibitor : 20-50 times more potent than GKT-137831.
Significant effects in DNBS-ulcerative colitis and LPS-induced acute inflammatory animal studies.
High oral bioavailability and clean off-targets profile.
|11/15/18||GEM048||Inhibition of microbe-specific activation of B2 cells||Arterio- sclerosis||Discovery||Activation of B2 cells induced by changes of intestinal microbiota is involved in the development of atherosclerosis with a different mechanism from lipid metabolism.
Disruption of intestinal microbiota or depletion of activated B2 cells suppressed the development of atherosclerosis in mouse model.
|10/25/18||GEM047||Lactoferrin complexes||Pain on Peripheral Neuropathy, Cancer||IV||Preclinical||Improved PK profile over natural lactoferrin.
Analgesic effect on periferal neuropathy induced by oxaliplatin.
Inhibitory effects on the growth of syngeneic murine lung cancer model
Inhibitory effects on the growth of human non-small cell lung cancer cell in vitro.

|10/25/18||GEM046||Indirect activator of AMPK||Hyper- lipidemia, type 2 diabetes, cancer||Oral||Preclinical||Derivative of fungus product ascochlorin.
Good PK profile in rats.
Superior effects than metformin on blood glucose and triglyceride level in diabetic mice model.
Significant enhancement of the efficacy in combination with metformin on T2D model
Significant enhancement of the antitumor activity of anti-PD-1 antibody in mouse model
|09/20/18||GEM045||Autotaxin Inhibitor||NASH, Panacreatic cancer||Oral||Preclinical||Showed antifibrotic efficacy with significant histopathological score reductions in chronic pancreatitis and NASH (Stelic STAM & MCD) in mice.
