Fremont, CA - (NewMediaWire) - May 25, 2022 - ABVC Biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABVC), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing therapeutic solutions in oncology/hematology, CNS, and ophthalmology, today announced that it has been engaged by Orion BioTech, Inc., a medical device company based in Taipei, Taiwan, to identify candidates interested in out-licensing Orion developmental products, such as Orion’s “Lamina Cover” for spine surgery, its “Wireless Intracranial Pressure (ICP) Monitor” for brain surgery and its “Auto-stop Drill” for orthopedic surgery. The Lamina Cover recently received U.S. F.D.A. medical device 510(k) approval.
Under the terms of this engagement, ABVC will use its business relationships around the world to find licensing partners for Orion products and, in return, will receive a monthly retainer fee and 15% of the licensing income and royalties received by Orion for each licensed product. The engagement remains in effect until a written notice of termination is initiated by either party.
“We are pleased to utilize our global business development capabilities to identify potential product licensing partners for Orion BioTech,” said Dr. Howard Doong, Chief Executive Officer of ABVC BioPharma. “For us, this engagement demonstrates our desire to actively seek revenue sources that can help support the development of our oncology and CNS drugs. Other examples of this strategy include our maitake mushroom supplement distribution agreement and our recently announced services agreement with NeuCen. Both of these agreements, along with the Orion engagement, demonstrate our ability to provide valuable services to the emerging biotech industry in Taiwan.”
