Fosun Kite Biotechnology Co., Ltd. (referred to as "Fosun Kite") was established in early 2017 in Zhangjiang High tech Park, Shanghai. It is a joint venture between Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group and Kite Pharma (a subsidiary of Gilead Sciences) in the United States. Fosun Kite has a mission of "focusing on healing and illuminating life", and a vision of "becoming the most valuable leader in cell and gene therapy". It focuses on the research and development, industrialization, and commercialization of tumor cell therapy products, benefiting Chinese patients.
Since the establishment of Fosun Kite, in only 4 years’ time, it has launched the first CAR-T cell therapy product Yescarta (axicabtagene ciloleucel, Yikaida®) in China in June 2021. Yikaida®’s first indication is to treat adult patients with recurrent or refractory large B-cell lymphoma who have previously received second-line or above systemic treatment. As of April 2023, Yikaida® has treated over 400 cancer patients and has been listed in over 80 provincial and municipal welfare insurance reimbursement drug list. The second line indication of this product (used to treat adult large B-cell lymphoma that is ineffective in first-line immunochemotherapy or relapses within 12 months after first-line immunochemotherapy) has been officially accepted and was granted priority review by the National Drug Administration (NMPA). The second indication of Yikaida® (used to treat adult patients with recurrent or refractory indolent non Hodgkin's lymphoma after receiving second-line or above systemic treatment) has been approved for IND and was granted breakthrough treatment drug. Two indications of the company's second CAR-T cell therapy drug FKC889 (① for recurrent or refractory mantle cell lymphoma after previous second-line or above treatment, and ② for treating recurrent or refractory adult precursor B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia) were approved for IND in March and December 2022, respectively.
The company's 10000 square meter CAR-T commercial manufacturing site was officially put into use in December 2019 at the Zhangjiang Innovative Pharmaceutical Industry Base. In addition, Fosun Kite has a 2000 square meter research and development center and an innovative talent team. Through independent innovation and international cooperation, Fosun Kite focuses on CAR-T research and development and clinical evidence-based projects, creating a sustainable innovative research and development pipeline.
