The Weekly BioSpace News Podcast

Last week, WuXi AppTec was once again in the news as Reuters broke the story that the China-based biotech allegedly handed a U.S. client’s intellectual property over to the Chinese government without consent.

Meanwhile, Lonza’s $1.2 billion buy of a Roche biologics plant in California—one of the world’s largest biologics manufacturing facilities by volume—bodes well for the CDMO market, and BMS pulls ahead of Amgen in the race to bring a fully approved KRAS inhibitor to market for patients with certain types of non-small cell lung cancer, acing a confirmatory Phase III trial for Krazati.
