Pearl, which is now a member of the AstraZeneca Group, was founded in 2006, with a mission and vision to develop differentiated therapeutics for widely prevalent respiratory disease conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), by utilising a proprietary drug delivery platform and existing therapeutic agents administered in metered-dose inhalers (MDIs).LOL下注网站
In 2007, Pearl began the development of leading 产品介绍 candidates with initial venture funding from 5AM Ventures, Clarus Ventures and New Leaf Ventures. In 2010, Vatera Healthcare Partners joined Pearl as a fourth investor. Between 2007-2013, Pearl’s four investors backed it with $167.5 million, allowing the progression of key therapeutic areas.
Subsequently, in 2013, AstraZeneca acquired Pearl to expand and strengthen its respiratory 产品介绍s 文件夹, which includes many Pearl legacy compounds, and have made strides in bringing therapies to asthma patients.
Notably, Pearl’s lead combination medicine was recently launched in the US during the first quarter of 2017 and has regulatory submission acceptance in EU for COPD. Thanks to the Pearl 团队’s experience as inhalation 产品介绍 development experts, another lead 产品介绍 candidate is progressing through the pipeline as a potential treatment for COPD and asthma.
Pearl successfully delivered valuable therapeutics for a range of respiratory patients. As part of the AstraZeneca Group, we will continue the ongoing commitment to progress developments and innovation in respiratory science.
Our pipeline forms a robust 文件夹 of investigational therapies in varied stages of clinical development.
Phase III/Reg. refers to assets that are in Phase III or that have been submitted for regulatory approval, and may include assets that are now launched in one or more major markets.
