About Cynviloq
Cynviloq (or IG-001; a paclitaxel-loaded micellar diblock copolymer) is a next-generation branded paclitaxel formulation for the potential treatment of metastatic breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and other solid tumors. In July, the FDA Division of Oncology Products 1 agreed that the data available are sufficient to support a 505(b)(2) pathway, using Abraxane® and Taxol® as the Reference Listed Drugs, to obtain approval. Sorrento anticipates initiating the single Bioequivalence trial required for registration, in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Sorrento has exclusive distribution rights to Cynviloq in the U.S. and the 27 countries of the European Union, from Samyang Biopharmaceuticals, a South Korean corporation.
