About Novamab

Shanghai Novamab Biopharmaceuticals Co., Ltd. is an innovative biopharmaceutical enterprise committed to sdAb drug development and industrialization. Founded in October 2017, the company is located in Shanghai International Medical Park. It has Novamab has established the first and only sdAb development platform covering the full biopharmaceutical process in China. As of April 2023, we have nearly 90 employees, applied for nearly 70 patents with 25 authorized.

Novamab has independently created five core technology platforms: sdAb rapid screening platform, Pichia pastoris based CMC platform, biologcial drug inhalation platform, long-acting sdAb platform and bispecific sdAb platform. Each platform has unique leading technology, which makes it more competitive.The powerful paltform make it possible to rapidly bring the candidates to commercialization. The completion of the 500L GMP workshop for sdAb production using Pichia pastoris fills the industry gap in this field, which is extremely scarce and competitive.

Novamab has developed dozens of sdAb drugs, covering respiratory, anti-infection, ophthalmology and oncology. Currently, it has obtained three clinical approvals. LQ036 and LQ043 developed by Novamab have overturned the existing treatment methods for respiratory diseases, both of which are the world's first inhalable sdAb drug for their respective target. Phase I trials of LQ036 have been conducted in China and Australia, both demonstrating excellent safety and tolerability. The LQ036 IND files for COPD treatment will be submitted soon. In addition, phase I trial of LQ043 in China has completed the dosing of the third group of subjects. Most moderate to severe asthmatics would benefit from the LQ036 and LQ043 considering their mechanism of action.
