Table of Contents
The Founding of BeiGene
The year was 2010, and Xiaodong Wang had just returned to China after spending over two decades working in the US biotech industry. He had held executive positions at Genentech and Amgen, two of the biggest players in the global biotech scene, but he felt that there was something missing. Wang saw an opportunity to create a Chinese biotech company that could develop innovative cancer treatments for patients in China and around the world.
With a clear vision and a determined spirit, Wang founded BeiGene, a biotechnology company that would go on to become one of the most promising players in the Chinese biotech scene.
BeiGene's Business Strategy
BeiGene's business strategy is based on a few key principles. The company aims to develop innovative cancer treatments that can meet the needs of patients in China and around the world. To achieve this, BeiGene has invested heavily in R&D and established a state-of-the-art research facility in Beijing. The company's R&D efforts are focused on developing treatments for a variety of cancers, including lung cancer, liver cancer, and lymphoma.
In addition to investing in R&D, BeiGene has also established partnerships and collaborations with other companies and research institutions. These partnerships have allowed the company to access new technologies and expertise, and they have helped to accelerate the development of its products.
Portfolio of Products
BeiGene's portfolio of products includes a number of promising cancer treatments. One of the company's most promising products is tislelizumab, a PD-1 inhibitor that is used to treat a variety of cancers, including lung cancer and lymphoma. Tislelizumab has shown promising results in clinical trials, and it has already been approved for use in China.
Another promising product in BeiGene's portfolio is zanubrutinib, a BTK inhibitor that is used to treat lymphoma and other blood cancers. Zanubrutinib has also shown promising results in clinical trials, and it has been approved for use in the US and Europe.
Finally, BeiGene is also developing a range of other cancer treatments, including antibodies, cell therapies, and small molecule inhibitors. These products are at various stages of development, but they all have the potential to address significant unmet needs in cancer treatment.
