Increasing interest in European Biotech from China

Between 2016 and 2020, the number of Biotech licensing deals between European licensors and Chinese licensees has more than tripled. The largest deal was the agreement between MediGene AG and Cytovant Sciences HK Ltd for at least USD 1,010m in April 2019. Cytovant were granted exclusive licenses to develop, manufacture, and commercialize Medigene’s research-stage T cell immunotherapy targeting NY-ESO-1 as well as a DC vaccine targeting WT-1 and PRAME, in Greater China, South Korea, and Japan.
