The approvals cover a range of therapeutic areas, including cancer, kidney diseases, and anti-infectious diseases. Notable approvals include:
1. JMKX003801 (Gram-negative Bacterial Infection): NMPA approved a clinical trial for treating serious infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria, addressing rising antibiotic resistance, especially carbapenem resistance. JMKX003801 is expected to demonstrate a broad antibacterial spectrum.
2. JMKX003142 (Renal Edema): NMPA approved a clinical trial for treating renal edema in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. With around 120 million CKD patients in China, JMKX003142 aims to improve patients’ quality of life as a novel diuretic drug.
3. JMKX003948 (Renal Cell Carcinoma): NMPA approved a clinical trial for treating renal cell carcinoma, targeting a significant gap in treatment options post-failure of existing therapies. Preclinical studies suggest a different mechanism of action for JMKX003948.
4. JMKX000197 (Bladder Cancer): FDA and NMPA approved clinical trials for treating BCG-unresponsive non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. JMKX000197 is anticipated to regulate the immune system and exhibit a significant anti-tumor effect.
5. JMKX003002 (Hyperphosphatemia in CKD Patients): FDA approved a clinical trial for treating hyperphosphatemia in end-stage kidney disease patients on dialysis.
