À propos de Genkyotex Genkyotex est une société biopharmaceutique leader des thérapies NOX. Cotée sur Euronext Paris et Bruxelles. Genkyotex est implantée en France et, via sa filiale GenKyoTex Suisse SA, en Suisse. Leader des thérapies NOX, son approche thérapeutique unique est basée sur l’inhibition sélective des enzymes NOX qui amplifient de nombreux processus pathologiques comme les fibroses, l’inflammation, la perception de la douleur, l’évolution du cancer et la neurodégénérescence. Genkyotex dispose d’une plateforme permettant d’identifier des petites molécules administrables par voie orale et capables d’inhiber de manière sélective des enzymes NOX spécifiques. Genkyotex développe un portefeuille de candidats médicaments représentant une nouvelle classe thérapeutique ciblant une ou plusieurs enzymes NOX. Son candidat médicament le plus avancé, GKT831, un inhibiteur des NOX1 et 4, devrait entrer en essai clinique de phase II dans la cholangite biliaire primitive (PBC, une pathologie fibrotique orpheline) avant la fin du deuxième trimestre 2017. Ce candidat pourra également être actif dans d’autres indications fibrotiques. Son deuxième produit candidat, GKT771, est un inhibiteur de NOX1 ciblant plusieurs voies dans l’angiogenèse, la perception de la douleur et l’inflammation, et devrait entrer en essai clinique au cours du second semestre 2017. Genkyotex dispose également d’une plate-forme polyvalente, Vaxiclase, particulièrement adaptée au développement d’immunothérapies. Un partenariat sur l'utilisation de Vaxiclase en tant qu'antigène en soi (GTL003) a été établi avec le Serum Institute of India Ltd (Serum Institute), le plus grand producteur de doses de vaccins au monde, pour le développement par le Serum Institute de vaccins de combinaison de cellules multivalentes contre plusieurs maladies infectueuses. Ce partenariat pourrait générer jusqu'à 57 millions de dollars de recettes pour Genkyotex, avant redevances sur les ventes.

The instant invention provides significant improvement in bacterial capsular polysaccharide yield at fermentation harvest stage, particularly Neisseria meningitidis capsular polysaccharides by gradual addition of an antifoam agent alongwith an optimal feed solution from log phase onwards. Specifically, antifoam increases optical density of the culture thereby resulting in higher capsular polysaccharide yield of about 2 to 2.5 gm/L at fermentation harvest stage wherein polysaccharide obtained has optimal average molecular weight of about 800KDa to about 1200KDa and has minimum load of contaminants like proteins and nucleic acid. The antifoam agent of the present invention was found to be bifunctional such that it increased the polysaccharide productivity as well as resulted in effective defoaming thereby making said fermentation process suitable for further scale-up.
