TWi- insights into complex technologies and difficult-to-manufacture generics

TWi has already successfully file several ANDAs with US FDA and has 15-20 on going oral and non-oral projects in its R&D pipeline. To ensure TWi's future success, TWi has adopted the following research and development strategies:

Continuing Development of Control Release Oral Niche Generics

  • Since being Anchen, Inc.'s Taiwan R&D subsidiary in 2006, TWi had successfully developed and transferred over 20 control release oral Niche Generics to Anchen, Inc.
  • With experience and know-how in developing the Niche Generics of high technical barriers while being Anchen, Inc.'s subsidiary, TWi has file several its own ANDAs for oral control release products with US FDA since spinning off from Anchen, Inc. in 2010.
  • Going forward, TWi will continue to develop control release oral Niche Generics. To better compete against other world-class Specialty Generics companies, TWi will take advantage of its expertise and past experience in managing bioequivalent studies to shorten the product development time in order to obtain FTF and FTM opportunities.

Developing Transdermal and other semi-solid Platforms to Expand Product Bandwidth

  • TWi currently has 2 transdermal ANDA filings under US FDA's review and provides all the support to the clinical trial and manufacturing capacity for TWi Bio's orphan drug (AC-203). TWi also continues to look for M&A opportunities to further strengthen the portfolio.

Acquiring facility to shorten learning curve

  • In addition to internal efforts in developing ophthalmic products, TWi intends to expand the portfolio in a more effective and efficient way with secured capacity and capability by acquiring the existing facilities with experienced talents of Synpac-Kingdom in 2017

Other Complex
Working through partnership to accumulate the R&D capabilities

  • TWi also plans to engage in other complex dosage forms, such as injection and inhalation. By leveraging external resources from other leading companies in Taiwan or overseas, TWi is able to accelerate in-house R&D capabilities by strategic partnership to solidify its competitive advantages.
