LONDON, ENGLAND, November 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alexavi, Ltd, a global clinical development and commercialisation services organization that helps small and mid-tier biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device companies successfully commercialise products, are pleased to announce that they have entered a collaborative partnership with Double Bond Pharmaceutical AB. Alexavi will be responsible for managing an Early Access to Treatment program on behalf of Double Bond. This partnership marks a significant milestone for Alexavi following its recent launch as a biotech services company.
The Early Access Program will enable access to a ground-breaking treatment paradigm for the treatment of Glioblastoma.
Glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive malignant form of all primary brain tumours, affects glial cells and accounts for 52% of all brain tissue tumour cases and 20% of all tumours inside the skull. Approximately 250,000 patients with Glioblastomas are identified globally each year.
The current standard of care is surgery followed by radiation and chemotherapy. Double Bond’s Temodex® (Temozolomide gel) is a chemotherapy drug administered directly at the site of the tumour following surgical removal, in the form of a gel, thus ensuring that the therapeutic effect is felt precisely where it is needed. Temozolomide is a prodrug which destroys the tumour’s DNA and triggers the death of tumour cells.
Double Bond Pharmaceutical acquired Orphan Drug Designation for Temodex® (Temozolomide gel) from the European Medicines Agency in 2016. Whilst developing their own form of this product further (currently known as SI-053), they are making Temodex® available to physicians across the globe.
