Strategic Partners

Laekna continues to seek opportunities for external partnerships

We own global licenses in a number of investigational products to treat cancer and liver diseases, and we are open to partnering with global pharmaceutical and biotech companies.

Combination therapies

Recent studies showed that Laekna’s pipeline products possess shared and/or complementary mechanisms of action with other investigational drugs, thus having the potential for combination treatments. We are actively looking for partners to jointly develop global combination regimens.

On top of in-house R&D, we also hope to in-license more high-quality products to further enhance our innovation pipeline.
