Currently, there are only two therapeutic tumor vaccines, sipuleucel-T for melanoma and Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) for bladder cancer, as well as preventive tumor vaccines against infection with human papillomavirus and hepatitis B approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Recently, several other tumor vaccines have entered clinical development and evidence of efficacy has begun to emerge.
According to Mordor Intelligence, the global cancer vaccine market size was US$6.79 billion in 2021 and will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11.53% from 2022 to 2026. The forecasted market size by 2026 will be around 12 billion US dollars.
Currently, the design and preclinical development process of tumor vaccines is complex and time-consuming, which hampers the efficiency and success rate of tumor vaccine research and development.
Incorporating XtalPi’s industrial expertise in AI computation and robotic automation, this collaboration aims to create an AI tumor vaccine R&D platform that applies advanced AI algorithms and high-precision molecular modeling to predict and design a variety of tumor vaccines that can activate specific immune responses to kill tumors. Tumor vaccines will be screened and verified through automated experiments, and through the integration of algorithmic feedback to optimize potency and efficacy, the platform is expected to generate preclinical candidate vaccine compounds against tumors. tumors with robust immune activity.
dr. Shuhao Wenco-founder and chairman of XtalPi, comments: “As a company based in the Hetao Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Cooperation Zone, XtalPi is committed to realizing the synergies between Shenzhen and hong kong creating a new paradigm for innovation in the Greater Bay Area. Empowered by the latest technological advances in automation, artificial intelligence is accelerating more innovative and diverse areas in drug research and development. Together with CK Life Sciences, we are committed to overcoming conventional limitations and discovering diverse applications for advanced technologies. We believe that the AI cancer vaccine platform jointly developed by CK Life Sciences and XtalPi will inspire the global scientific community to advance vaccine research and development and accelerate key milestones in cancer vaccine development. We are convinced that this collaboration will greatly facilitate the exchange of scientific research in the Greater Bay Area. »
dr. Melvin TohVice President and Scientific Director of CK Life Sciences, commented: “R&D of tumor vaccines is one of the main development directions of CK Life Sciences. The cooperation with XtalPi will apply XtalPi’s AI algorithm, molecular modeling and automated experiments to speed up the R&D process, improve the success rate and increase the efficacy of tumor vaccines.”
Founded in 2014, the founders of XtalPi recognized a common obstacle in drug development related to solid polymorphism, which could be successfully solved through the predictions of quantum physics. Since then, XtalPi has focused on identifying and then solving traditional bottlenecks in biopharmaceutical R&D through innovative technologies. Thanks to significant capital investments in automation and personnel, XtalPi now has four locations worldwide and employs approximately 1000 employees. XtalPi has engaged in collaborative research with nearly all of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies in the world. Its ID4 platform combines physics-based simulations with experimental validation and refinement, automation for rapid synthesis, and machine learning to continuously improve prediction accuracy and process efficiency.
