BIOMIT Center for Molecular Immunology - CIM





Our Deputy Director of Productive Operations Sergio Cata explains in a report for the Round Table that despite the complexities that the country faces in the face of the pandemic in the sanitary and economic order, the CIM has maintained its productions, guaranteeing the stability of the CIM products, of which only one (nimotuzumab) has been lacking and its coverage should be stabilized at the hospital level in the months of August and September.


The CIM begins the week checking in the Board of Directors of R + D + N:
* Clinical, regulatory and commercial strategies (itolizumab)
The evolution of the production campaign that should end this week is analyzed.
* Preliminary data from the clinical trial, prioritized project: NeuroEpo
The results of the trial are updated so far, showing improvements in patients with two years of treatment.
* Business activity progress of innovative and biosimilar products
Business actions are monitored from ongoing R&D projects.


Today marks the 15th anniversary of obtaining the definitive registration of our CIMAher® monoclonal antibody (nimotuzumab), a product that has since been applied to more than 300 children with cancer, giving them hope and quality of life.
