Interview with Dr.Xiangdong Qu, the Founder of QureBio, in the Special Issue of Drug Hunter
Recently, Dr.Xiangdong Qu, the founder of QureBio, invested and incubated by Viva BioInnovator (VBI), was jointly interviewed by the Drug Hunter and Healthcare Executive. Dr.Qu introduced the basic situation of the company, drugs in development, strategic thinking, milestone events and future strategic planning. Regarding the layout of the company's drugs in development, Dr.Qu said: "We currently have two clinical stage pipelines, Q-1802 and Q-1801. Q-1802 is a CLDN18.2/PD-L1 bispecific antibody, and Q-1801 is a SIRP⍺/PD-L1 bispecific antibody; both pipelines target tumor-target cells by simultaneously activating autoimmune and adaptive immune mechanisms to attack tumors. We have a platform including phage display technology, hybridoma antibody human platform, single-domain antibody platform, and antibody engineering. As a result, QureBio has built several preclinical pipelines at different stages. In addition, in the past five years, we have also studied some potential first-in-class targets and focused on developing unique bi/multi-specific antibody technology, focusing on the next generation of solid tumor cancer treatment options."
