Synthon's success in the field of complex generic medicines has been a stimulus for us to start development of our own biopharmaceuticals in 2007. The ambition of our biopharmaceutical business is to be best-in-class or first-in-class with innovative products based on new biological and chemical entities. Our growing portfolio reflects our focus and commitment to bringing medicines to patients with a high unmet medical need, notably in oncology and autoimmune diseases.

As part of the Synthon Group, Synthon Biopharmaceuticals is well-positioned to build on the success, global infrastructure and organization of the financially strong, privately held parent company. This distinguishes our innovative Biopharmaceuticals business from other biotech companies and also allows us to make creative choices and to be flexible and dynamic.

State-of-the-art laboratories

We have built state-of-the-art biopharmaceutical research laboratories and GMP facilities for manufacturing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) - up to Phase III clinical trials and early launches - both for our own portfolio and to support commercial licensees of our ADC technology.
