About Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc.
Sorrento is a commercial and clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapies to treat cancer, pain (non-opioid treatments), autoimmune diseases and COVID-19. Sorrento’s multimodal, multifaceted approach to fighting cancer is made possible by its broad immuno-oncology platforms, including key assets such as next-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), fully human antibodies (“G-MAB™ library”) , immuno-cellular therapies (“DAR-T™”), antibody-drug conjugates (“ADC”) and oncolytic virus (“Seprehvec™”). Sorrento is also developing potential antiviral therapies and vaccines against coronaviruses, including STI-1558, COVISHIELD™ and COVIDROPS™; and diagnostic testing solutions, including COVIMARK™.
Sorrento’s commitment to therapies that improve the lives of patients is also demonstrated by our effort to develop a non-opioid small molecule for the treatment of pain, resiniferatoxin (“RTX”), a first in its class (TRPV1 agonist ), and SP-102 (10 mg, sodium dexamethasone phosphate viscous gel) (SEMDEXA™), a novel viscous gel formulation of a corticosteroid widely used for epidural injections to treat lumbosacral radicular pain or sciatica, and to market ZTlido® (lidocaine topical system) 1.8% for the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). RTX has been approved for a Phase II trial for intractable cancer pain and a Phase II trial in patients with osteoarthritis. In March 2022, the final positive results of the CLEAR Program of the Pivotal Phase III Trial for SEMDEXA™, its novel non-opioid product for the treatment of lumbosacral radicular pain (sciatica), were announced. ZTlido® was approved by the FDA on February 28, 2018.
