【 Healthcare+ EXPO Taiwan 2003】

Everfront Biotech will participate in Healthcare+ EXPO Taiwan 2023, which is set to take place from November 30th to December 3rd. This event has already created quite a buzz even before its commencement. It is of considerable scale, featuring over 2,500 booths, with participation from various sectors, including hospitals, technology companies, and biotechnology firms, all of which have experienced growth rates exceeding 120%.

According to the Taiwan Bio-Industry Organization, several pre-delegations of buyers from seven ASEAN institutions have already initiated inquiries for procurement. This highlights the domestic biomedicine industry’s strength and its eagerness to participate on the global stage.

The event, which is the largest in the Asia-Pacific region, attracted 180,000 visitors last year. This year, with the burgeoning developments in AI, big data, cloud computing, and supercomputing, the enthusiasm for participation has extended globally. The focus is on exploring the business opportunities presented by AI in the realms of healthcare and general wellness.

The Taiwan Bio-Industry Organization has outlined three major themes for Healthcare+ EXPO Taiwan 2023: Smart Healthcare, Precision Medicine, and Lifelong Health. With more than 2,500 booths and a growth rate of over 120% in participation from hospitals, technology companies, and biotechnology firms, the event is set to witness the involvement of not only major medical centers but also over 70 regional and specialized hospitals. This diverse participation will showcase Taiwan’s cutting-edge medical technologies, clinical applications, and innovative validations, offering opportunities for collaboration and procurement for both domestic and international companies.

Everfront Biotech will participate in Healthcare+ EXPO Taiwan 2023, a not-to-be-missed Asia-Pacific medical biotechnology event, from November 30 to December 3. This event showcases the strength of the domestic biopharmaceutical industry striving for global excellence. We are honored to be invited to co-exhibit with Hualien Tzu Chi Medical Center (Booth N802, 4F). We will present the clinical progress of our anti-brain cancer drug and the research and development achievements in treating neurodegenerative diseases. Additionally, on Saturday, December 2, at 1:00 PM, there will be an Expert Lecture featuring Dr. Shinn-Zong Lin, the Superintendent of the Medical Center, with the topic ” The Cerebraca® Wafer Journey to the Global stage.” We look forward to your visit.

Product Highlights of Cerebraca® Wafer:

Everfront Biotech’s innovative new drug, Cerebraca® Wafer, is a precision medicine sustained-release wafer that revolutionizes the treatment of malignant brain cancer. Through multiple patented novel features, Cerebraca® Wafer has successfully addressed the challenges of treating malignant brain cancer, which is difficult to manage and prone to relapse. Chemotherapy gradually loses its effectiveness against brain cancer cells due to their drug resistance, and the high proportion of cancer stem cells further exacerbates the problem of cancer recurrence and treatment resistance. However, these issues can be addressed by the pharmacological mechanism of action of Cerebraca® Wafer. In addition, malignant brain cancer cells express PD-L1, which renders the immune system unable to kill cancer cells. The successful development of Cerebraca® Wafer has also addressed this issue. In Phase I clinical trials, Cerebraca® Wafer has demonstrated efficacy without any drug-related adverse reactions. The median or average cumulative survival of relapsed malignant brain cancer patients has reached 25-26 months, which is significantly better than existing strategies such as Gliadel® wafer implantation (6.4 months), Temodal capsules (5.8 months), or Avastin injection (9.4 months). Cerebraca® Wafer has been approved by the Taiwan Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Human Research Ethics Committee of Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital for compassionate use trials. For malignant brain cancer patients who cannot undergo surgery and have tumors growing at the cervical spine, implanting Cerebraca® Wafer through a small incision has resulted in tumor shrinkage. In addition, combining Cerebraca® Wafer with cytokine-induced killer cells (CIK) for treatment can achieve a recurrence-free survival period of more than 40 months. With its outstanding clinical results, Everfront Biotech Inc. is actively seeking partners to jointly develop this new drug and help more malignant brain cancer patients.

Introduction to Everfront Biotech Inc.:

Everfront Biotech Inc. was founded in 2010, with a focus on research and development of new drugs, specifically the screening and further development of potential small molecules for clinical study. The company’s team is responsible for all aspects of product development, from front-end potential product development to pre-clinical research, chemistry manufacturing and controls (CMC), clinical trial submissions, and clinical trial planning and execution. To date, the Everfront Biotech team has successfully applied three clinical trials: Cerebraca® Wafer (for malignant brain tumors), HK-001 (for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), and EF-009 (for pancreatic cancer), which have been approved for IND applications in both the United States and Taiwan.

Everfront Biotech’s new drug development is in line with national policies, and the Cerebraca® Wafer and HK-001 products were granted the certifications of biotech and new drug in 2016. The company has received the government subsidies in three science and technology projects as of 2022 from the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
