Astellas Anemia Partnership
FibroGen and Astellas have been collaborating on hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) anemia programs since 2004, first for Japan, and then for a broader territory covering Europe, the Middle East, the Commonwealth of Independent States, and South Africa. The strategic collaboration between the two companies brought the roxadustat programs to Phase 3 clinical development first among all HIF prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor (HIF-PHI) programs. Together with Astellas and AstraZeneca (our partner for the rest-of-world), we are well-positioned to bring new treatment options to patients suffering from anemia around the world.
AstraZeneca Anemia Partnership
In 2013, FibroGen and AstraZeneca entered into an anemia partnership for the U.S., and all other markets not licensed to Astellas, and for China. Our collaboration leverages FibroGen China’s strategy to bring the world-class innovation to China first, and AstraZeneca’s strong global footprint in the commercialization of pharmaceutical products.
