Date Candidate Mechanism of action Indication Route Modality Development stage Note
06/04/21 GEM185 GLP-1/GIP dual agonist Obesity, diabetes s.c. Peptide Phase 1 GEM185 is an injectable (QD) dual agonist for GLP-1R and GIPR. Preclinical studies have shown that GEM185 is more effective in improving diabetes and obesity than GLP-1R agonism only. In addition, GEM185 has been shown to improve liver parameters in diabetic and obesity conditions in preclinical research. Hence, GEM185 may be superior to the GLP-1R agonist in improving diabetes, obesity, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). In a preclinical study, GEM185 showed better efficacy in improving glycemic control and an almost same efficacy in decreasing body weight compared to tirzepatide, a Lilly’s Ph3 program. A long-acting formulation, which is likely to maximize its therapeutic efficacy, are under development. A phase 1 study (first-in-human study) started in 2020 in the UK. No longer available for licensing to Asia/Pacific excluding Japan. Contact

05/24/21 GEM244 Recombinant human CC10 protein - multiple mechanisms, replacement therapy Chronic rhinosinusitis* Acute lung injuries**, including Severe acute respiratory infection, Smoke inhalation, ARDS, COPD exacerbation, and Chronic Lung Diseases**, including Bronchiolitis obliterans, Asthma, and COPD Intranasal, Intravenous and Inhaled Protein *Phase 2 (Phase 1 completed) **Phase 1 (Preclinical completed) GEM244 is a recombinant version of a naturally occurring secretoglobin protein and a unique, clinical-stage, first-in-class biologic for host defense, ARDS, shock, thrombosis, chronic lung diseases, and transplant.
- Proof of pharmacology demonstrated in human infants and numerous animal models, for example, anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic, and disease-modifying activity, allergy, asthma, COPD, lung repair, transplant, burns, shock, and pulmonary edema/pneumonia
- Broad-spectrum use in respiratory infection such as Influenza, COVID-19, RSV, possibly bacterial pneumonia - Genetic alleles correlate with deficiencies of the native secretoglobin to identify patients most likely to benefit from this therapy as a replacement of the native protein.
04/30/21 GEM243 Known and available under CDA Mucositis Prevention and Treatment, Fibrotic Disease Treatment Injectable or Oral Small molecule Phase 2 Small molecule drug for the prevention and treatment of chemotherapy and radiation therapy induced mucositis. Also shows activity intreating fibrotic diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis and NASH. GEM243 has successfully completed POC human clinical studies in head and neck cancer patients for chemotherapy-induced mucositis prevention with excellent results. GEM243 has shown to be extremely safe and highly effective in P1a, P1b, and P2a human clinical studies.
Potentially useful in preventing and treating chemotherapy-induced pulmonary fibrosis and as a direct treatment for diseases such as Covid-19-induced pulmonary fibrosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and NASH.
