In May 2017, a representative office was opened in New York, USA to facilitate product development and authority contact on Panion’s most promising market. Two experienced US consultants were joined to Panion together with our corporate Director Business Development, Carlos N. Velez.
Panion has held a Pre-Submission Conference with the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicines (CVM)
in October 2018 for presentation and discussion of the gene therapy product in development, CG01-canine. An application file (INAD) was opened earlier in 2018, and a Minor Use Minor Species (MUMS) status for dogs has been granted by the FDA, which is a kind of “orphan drug status” for veterinary medicines and which opens for incentives and assistance. In relation to this, fee waivers have been given for our development product so far for fiscal year 2017 and 2018.
