TaiGen plans to develop TG-0054 for stem cell transplantation, chemosensitization, critical limb ischemia and age-related macular degeneration. Nemonoxacin, a broad-spectrum non-fluorinated quinolone achieved the non-inferiority clinical cure rate compared with levofloxacin and both drugs have comparable safety profile in the phase II trial of community-acquired pneumonia. The second on-going phase II trial of nemonoxacin is to demonstrate the anti-MRSA activity of the drug in diabetic foot infection (DFI) with oral administration. TaiGen has an advanced HCV protease inhibitor program in preclinical development.
TaiGen plans to commercialize nemonoxacin in greater China and ASEAN countries. The on-going "first-in-class-new-drug" trials in China are slated to launch the product in China in 2011. Together with its licensor P&G Pharmaceuticals, the company will out-license nemonoxacin for the US/EU/Japan market.
