When priorities shift…
We’ve intensified our focus on specific disease areas. That means some products in our diversified portfolio of medicines and vaccines have moved outside our strategic focus.
Partnering success stories
Our exclusive worldwide license agreement with Corteria, a company initially backed by Kurma Partners, centers on two cardiovascular assets designed to treat specific types of heart failure: a CRF2 agonist peptide and an anti-vasopressin mAb. Corteria has recently announced an oversubscribed €65M ($71M1) Series A co-led by OrbiMed and Jeito Capital to advance our prior cardiovascular research into the clinic as a potential interceptive therapy for heart failure.
First Wave BioPharma
For the first time at Sanofi, an out-licensing deal was designed by using AI to reposition a Sanofi asset into a new indication. First Wave Bio signed an exclusive worldwide license for Capeserod, a Phase II program stopped in 2009, to be repurposed in gastrointestinal disorders with significant unmet needs. The new indication was suggested by the combination of Sanofi’s clinical data on Capeserod and the implementation of AI-empowered analyses of the drug’s properties.
