Partnering Success Stories

Provention Bio

After initially entering a U.S. commercialization and option agreement with them, we acquired Provention Bio, Inc. in 2023. In November 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Provention’s Tzield (teplizumab-mzwv) injection to delay the onset of stage 3 type 1 diabetes in patients aged eight years and older who currently have stage 2 type 1 diabetes.  This first-in-class therapy for certain at-risk patients will now be a core asset of Sanofi’s General Medicines portfolio.


We collaborate with BioCorp to design, develop, and distribute a connected cap that clips onto SoloStar™ pre-filled insulin pens. The cap collects and adapts insulin doses to help people with diabetes optimize their daily treatment. 


We acquired Kadmon to deliver transformative therapies. With Belumosudil in our transplant portfolio, we can help people with chronic graft versus host disease (GVHD). This approved, first-in-class treatment is designed for people over the age of 12 years who have failed at least two prior lines of systemic therapy. 


We collaborate with Taiwanese company Health2Sync to help people with diabetes manage their insulin. A regional digital platform offers a patient app and population-health tools for HCPs. It’s a flexible approach to realizing a connected care ecosystem.
