Over the past couple of weeks, France and Italy, two major affiliates of the Group, hosted drone-enabled sample transport and successfully performed their experimental flights in different conditions.

Jérôme Sallette, Chief Scientific Officer at Cerba HealthCare, comments: “Following the use cases we described in our white paper, the drone flight we experimented in Normandy with Cerballiance is a first step toward a broader and more sustainable approach of our logistic mix for sample transportation. It illustrates the long-standing drive for innovation within the Group and by 2024, we plan to identify how drones will prove an efficient complementary way of carrying biological samples”.

Last week Cerba HealthCare Italia performed the first drone flight with biological samples embedded, involving some of the medical centers around the Metropolitan City of Milan, specifically in the two sites located in the cities of Opera and Rozzano” adds Stefano Massaro, Chief Executive Officer of Cerba HealthCare Italia. “We are dealing with the first air transport of blood samples not yet tested, experimented by the use of a drone. The result of this adventure today makes us confident and eager to pursue the path of innovation as a landmark of a leading quality service for patients”.

REGiMMUNE Limited Licenses the Rights to Develop and Commercialize RGI-2001 To San Fu Biotech in Major Asian Countries1.4.2023 19:18:00 EEST | Press release

REGiMMUNE Limited (REGiMMUNE), a biotech company focused on creating innovative immunotherapies for immune disorders and cancer, and San Fu Biotech (SFB), a subsidiary of San Fu Chemical Co., Ltd. (4755.TW) have entered a licensing agreement to develop and commercialize RGI-2001 for the prophylaxis of acute Graft-versus-host disease (aGvHD) in major Asian countries. RGI-2001, with the novel mechanism to improve existing treatments, is a potentially first-in-class small molecule drug candidate targeted for preventing aGvHD, a life-threatening complication resulting from allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). GvHD is a systemic disorder that occurs when the graft's immune cells recognize the host as foreign and attack the recipient’s body cells or organs, and leads to skin rash, liver problems, abdominal pain or cramps, diarrhea, and increased risk for infections. Patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT have a high-risk of developing aGVHD associated with significant morb
