“We have worked with APC on several glycosylated peptide projects, and are excited to expand our relationship to enable us to reach a broader set of potential partners for our glycosylation technology,“ said Mr. Hiroaki Asai, President and CEO of GlyTech.

American Peptide Company, Inc. (APC) (Vista, CA) a leading peptide manufacturer, and GlyTech Inc. (Kyoto, Japan), a world-leading developer of glycosylated drugs, announced today that they have entered into a co-promotion agreement for GlyTech’s glycosylation technology. As part of the agreement, APC will leverage its sales and marketing resources to enhance GlyTech’s partnering efforts and GlyTech will promote APC as a partner of choice for manufacture of its glycopeptides and glycoproteins.

GlyTech’s glycosylation technology permits the synthesis of peptide and proteins with pre-attached glycans (sugars), taken from a library of over 50 different glycans. It has been shown to markedly improve drug properties such as half-life, binding affinity and selectivity, and heterogeneity. GlyTech’s technology was one of the finalists for the 2013 CPhI Pharma Award for Best Innovation in Process Development and has been used in multiple projects, such as glycosylated somatostatin analogue, synthetic interferon beta 1a, and glycosylated GLP-1.

“We have worked with APC on several glycosylated peptide projects, and are excited to expand our relationship to enable us to reach a broader set of potential partners for our glycosylation technology,“ said Mr. Hiroaki Asai, President and CEO of GlyTech.

“Offering a differentiated, proprietary technology that can dramatically improve our customers’ product attributes is very important, and we are pleased to partner with Glytech in achieving this goal, thereby serving our customers with an expanded portfolio ,“ said Mr. Minoru Sakakibara, President and CEO of APC.
