Porton Advanced Solutions Ltd. and DanausGT Biotechnology Co., Ltd. have announced a strategic collaboration in gene and cell therapy pipelines to expedite the development of innovative therapeutics.

As an end-to-end gene and cell therapy service provider, Porton Advanced CDMO offers solutions covering plasmids, cell therapy, gene therapy, oncolytic viruses, mRNA therapy, and bacterial therapy. DanausGT focuses on researching, developing, and producing new anti-cancer drugs, and drugs for rare diseases, through gene editing technology. 

DanausGT has established multiple R&D pipelines, and Porton Advanced will offer gene and cell therapy CDMO solutions to DanausGT, including plasmid, virus, and cell therapy products.

“We are excited to partner with DanausGT as their proprietary CRISPR/AAV technology is widely recognized. Their seven research pipelines are highly competitive, covering all the stages from pre-clinical to clinical phase I. Through our end-to-end gene and cell therapy CDMO, we hope to help DanausGT achieve IND approval for multiple pipelines and advance the development pipeline from domestic and overseas into the clinical stage. This collaboration will accelerate the development of innovative CGT therapeutics,” said Wang Yangzhou, CEO of Porton Advanced.

“We are pleased to establish strategic cooperation with Porton Advanced. I believe this partnership will expedite the development of innovative gene cell therapy. We are looking forward to collaborating in more fields,” said Wang Haifeng, founder, and CEO of DanausGT.
