Oneness Biotech Co., Ltd. has made significant progress in developing new drugs last year. FESPIXON® cream, our new drug for diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) passed the New Drug Application (NDA) of the Ministry of Health and Welfare and obtained the drug license. Nanchou Plant completed the PIC/S GMP and GDP certifications for the API plant and the finished pharmaceutical product plant. The details of Phase III MRCT clinical trials on FESPIXON® cream have been published in JAMA Network Open, an international medical journal. The result of clinical trials is much better than that of standard treatment. The R&D team continues to conduct academic and clinical research on FESPIXON® cream and works with major medical centers to evaluate the medication use on radiation ulcers, decubitus ulcers and varicose ulcers with an expectation to provide better treatment to patients. We also completed the Phase IIa clinical trial of FB825, a new drug for atopic dermatitis. According to the exploration results in this Phase IIa study, FB825 has met the anticipated treatment efficacy.
In response to the tremendous impact of COVID-19 globally, Oneness as a biotech company has diligently worked to develop SNS812, a RNA nucleic acid drug that targets and severs important gene sites of a coronavirus that do not mutate easily, to effectively inhibit 99.8% variants. The research result of SNS812 has been officially published in the world-leading journal, EMBO Molecular Medicine. It has been positively received by international virologists and RNA drug experts and they believe that RNA drugs like SNS812 may be the solution for variants and pave the way for new COVID-19 treatment. “New drug development” is our core business and our efforts are aligned with UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 3 to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”.
