|Date||Candidate||Mechanism of action||Indication||Route||Modality||Development stage||Note|
|04/02/21||GEM241||Analyzer of EEG algorithm by AI||Prediction of seizures in epilepsy patients||Ear wearable||Medical device||On Market||・A personalized ear-wearable non-invasive small medical device which detects changes in EEG pattern by AI algorithm that alerts seizure minimum one minute before it occurs to patients and caregivers.
・It records brain activities through the ear canal and uses Big Data.
・By predicting the seizure before it occurs, the device will prevent accidents and reduce injuries, emergencies, and deaths.
・Also, it reduces emotional impact such as anxiety/depression and increases de quality of life.
・Big Data treatment can help doctors and medical society to better understand the illness and perform patinets' follow-up.
|03/26/21||GEM117||Induction of apoptosis in adipocyte||Lipolysis, non-surgical fat reduction, Diabetes||s.c.||Small molecule
||Phase 2a completed||· GEM117 specifically induce apoptosis on local injection site adipocyte
· Phase 1 showed great safety without drug-related SAE in 40 healthy volunteers
· In the Phase 2a study (n=39), GEM117 showed significant dose-dependent lipolysis effects and reduced an average of 24% local fat volume. The safety profile was similar as observed in the Phase 1 study.
|03/24/21||GEM240||Genetically modified adipocytes||Genetic diseases and intractable diseases||Transー plant||Gene and Cell therapy||Phase 1||Genetically modified adipocytes for gene therapy and regenerative therapy.
It is developed for the treatment of various genetic diseases and metabolic disorders. It shows sustainable and stable efficacy or secretion of transduced gene products from the implant of GEM240.
GEM240 is incomparable and patient-friendly.

|01/29/21||GEM105||Viscosupplementation||Knee osteoarthritis||Intra-articular||Poly- saccharide
||Marketing authorization||Cross-linked sodium hyaluronate hydrogel with sodium hyaluronate fluid. Long-lasting and sustainable efficacy due to unique rheology of the cross-linked hydrogel. Injected only once and single injection shows comparable efficacy to a multiple-injection treatment. Obtained marketing authorization as a drug.||Contact|
|01/13/21||GEM239||Activation of Treg and downregulating pro-inflammatory cytokines||Psoriasis, Psoriatic arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's and colitis||Oral||Small molecule||Human POC completed||Microbiomes are important for regulating human immune systems. GEM239 is a small molecule known as a gut microbial metabolite. It downregulates pro-inflammatory cytokines, and promotes differentiation of anti-inflammatory Treg cells. Human POC study in small number of psoriasis patients has been done and significant treatment effects have been seen. FDA IND approved. Clinical trial starting in 30 patients. Formulation-science has been applied.||Contact|
|01/06/21||GEM238||CSN5 inhibitor||Cancer||i.v.||Peptide||Preclinical||- Identifying CDK2 binding regions within the CSN5 protein
- Specifically inhibits the binding between CSN5 and CDK2 in "small complex" that is specifically expressed in cancer cells.
- It is possible to specifically inhibit the growth of cancer cells while suppressing the effect on normal cells.
|01/04/21||GEM237||Autologous chondrocyte cell therapy for cartilage repair/regeneration||Chondral and osteochondral articular lesions of the knee||Arthro- scopic implan- tation||Cell and scaffold||Launch||The autologous cartilage repair system （a device kit consisting of a bioabsorbable highly porous scaffold and an enzyme for processing removed a small amount of cartilage） is for one-step surgery. It does not require an ex vivo cell expansion process. Hyaline cartilage is regenerated and long-term effectiveness is superior to the marrow stimulation procedure.
