Investment summary

SUDA Pharmaceuticals has historically focused on reformulating established drugs into oro-mucosal spray formulations for better bioavailability. Its lead commercial product is ZolpiMist, an oro-mucosal spray version of Ambien for the treatment of insomnia that is partnered in certain regions with Teva and Mitsubishi Tanabe. SUDA recently in-licensed an invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cell therapy platform that can be used in conjunction with chimeric antigen receptors to target blood cancers. There are a number of potential benefits of CAR-iNKT, including the prospect of being an allogeneic ‘off-the-shelf’ therapy, significantly simplifying the manufacture of the therapy and its delivery to patients. The therapy is expected to enter the clinic in 12–24 months and could be transformative for the company.
