Company announcement – No. 40 / 2020
Zealand Pharma Expands U.S. Operations, Opens New Boston Office
·Commercial operations will be headquartered in Boston, as company looks to commercialize pipeline in the U.S.
Copenhagen, DK and Boston, MA, U.S. July 6, 2020 – Zealand Pharma A/S (Nasdaq: ZEAL) (CVR-no. 20045078,) a biotechnology company changing lives with innovative peptide-based medicines, today announced the opening of its new U.S. headquarters in Boston which will be led by recently appointed President of Zealand Pharma U.S., Frank Sanders.
The new 5,000 square feet office, located in the Seaport at 34 Farnsworth Street, will accommodate about 40 employees who will be primarily focused on commercial and HR functions. In addition to the Seaport location, Zealand Pharma also has U.S offices in Marlborough, MA and New York, NY.
“This is an exciting time at Zealand Pharma as we continue to build out our commercial organization here in Boston,” said Frank Sanders, President of Zealand Pharma U.S. “The diverse talent pool, expertise and thriving life sciences environment in this city are exceptional. I look forward to working with this driven team and leaders in the Boston life sciences community as we prepare to deliver Zealand products and create positive impact in the lives of patients, their families and caregivers.”
In April, Zealand Pharma accelerated its U.S. commercial buildout with the asset acquisition of Valeritas Holdings, Inc., which included the marketed V-Go® wearable insulin delivery device, the transfer of 110 employees as well as supporting systems, processes and the majority of established contracts.
Zealand has two proprietary molecules with four differentiated late stage programs/drug-device products/indications; dasiglucagon to improve the treatment of metabolic diseases and glepaglutide, for gastrointestinal diseases. Dasiglucagon is a stable glucagon analog being developed in four indications, including severe hypoglycemia, for which the Company has filed a New Drug Application with the FDA. Dasiglucagon is also in a Phase 3 trial for congenital hyperinsulism (CHI), will be initiating a Phase 3 trial with their partner Beta Bionics for the dual-hormone artificial pancreas for automated diabetes management, and is in a Phase 2 trial for post bariatric surgery hypoglycemia. Glepaglutide is a long-acting GLP-2 analog being developed in an auto-injector with potential for convenient weekly administration, currently being evaluated in a pivotal Phase 3 study for patients with short bowel syndrome (SBS).
