mondoBIOTECH holding AG ("hereinafter alternatively referred to as "mondoBIOTECH", "We" or the "Company", and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") focuses on bioinformatics' analysis of immunomodulating substances that are naturally occurring in the human body in order to identify promising candidates for the development of medicinal products specifically targeted to the treatment of rare and neglected diseases. It is the intention of the Company to license or sell such medicinal product candidates to third parties in order to advance their late-stage development and to authorize their marketing and distribution.
We advance our medicinal product candidates portfolio by (i) bringing our pipeline to the awareness of the mondoBIOTECH Community, (ii) interacting and networking with the mondoBIOTECH Community in order to explore more innovative ways to develop, finance, promote and commercialize our medicinal product candidates and (iii) licensing or selling our medicinal product candidates to third parties after having protected our product with patent applications and/or orphan drug designations.
Our biggest challenge is to be able to find therapeutic solutions for as many of the 7,000 rare diseases as possible. This implies the capability to increase the awareness of the problem of rare diseases in the mondoBIOTECH Community because only with the power of collaboration with the continuously expanding mondoBIOTECH Community for rare diseases can we achieve concrete and meaningful results.
In the classical pharmaceutical and biotech field there is no correlation between resources invested in R&D and the resulting output obtained, at least not measurable in the numbers of new medicaments. Therefore, other value drivers probably characterize the development process. In-depth information exchange, interaction, versatility and flexibility are such value drivers.
We operate with a continuously expanding community (scientists, physicians, patients, patient advocacy organizations etc.) who share its experience, know-how, expertise and skills with us and like us is dedicated to the search of treatments for rare and neglected diseases.
Dry search rather than classical laboratory research (Search & Match): We search using IT tools and methods the vast amount of globally available data on biological and medical activities with known peptides and other biological immunomodulating substances rather than by engaging in the traditional approach of drug discovery.
Focus on bioactive substances of human origin:
Peptides of human origin often offer better efficacy and safety profiles compared to many other classes of molecular entities.
Focus on rare and neglected diseases:
Rare and neglected diseases offer strong competitive advantages and drugs for those diseases the long awaited relief for many affected patients.
Protection of the business:
Innovative intellectual property concepts and market protection through Orphan Medicinal Product Designations (OMPD) giving regulatory exclusivity for as much as seven years in the US, and 10 years in Europe and some other parts of the world.
Mondobiotech uses existing medical literature to match peptide therapies to diseases that might be efficacious in treating. The intellectual property developed by the company is licensed to other companies for further development.
Mondobiotech receives sign-up fees, milestones and royalties from its many licensed products. In relationship to certain licensing agreements partners may request additional development services that Mondobiotech provides.
The company’s growth is driven by the continuous development of its pipeline. This means both advancing through the stages of the development process and/or increasing the number licensing agreements.
Our customers are entities with an interest in having new medicinal products for the treatment of rare and neglected diseases available on the market.
Mondobiotech is currently partnered with Lung Rx (a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Therapeutics), Intermune, Biogen, the peptide manufacturer Bachem and the genetic testing company 23andMe.

On 1 February 2010, the Group finalized a strategic partnership with LungRX LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: UTHR), focused on the development of Aviptadil in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), Sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). United Therapeutics will be responsible for further development and commercialization of the Aviptadil platform. The new agreement with United Therapeutics represents a continuation of the prior agreement with Biogen Idec MA, Inc., which remains in the development project with financial interests with respect to the treatment of PAH with Aviptadil only.
