MolMed considers the agreement signed in March 2011 with the Telethon Foundation, the most important private Italian research organisation, to be of particular value for:

  • development of lentiviral vectors to be used in new experimental gene therapy protocols for four rare genetic diseases
  • manufacturing of patient-specific, genetically engineered cells used in gene therapy clinical trials for the treatment of Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD) and Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS).

San Raffaele Foundation

Agreement the  for the clinical-grade manufacturing of a cell therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy

MolMed provides patient-specific mesoangioblasts to be used in a clinical trial protocol for allogeneic cell therapy of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. MolMed has also performed the development and scaling-up of mesoangioblast cell cultures, as part of the OPTISTEM project, co-funded by the EU as part of the FP7 R&D Framework Project.


MolMed enters into a strategic collaboration with GSK for development,manufacturing and technology transfer in gene therapy

Following previous agreements signed in 2011 and 2013, in March 2015 MolMed S.p.A. entered into a strategic collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline, under which MolMed will supply development, manufacturing and technology transfer services aimed at the clinical application of gene therapies based on viral vector cellular transduction.
