Patient needs in China drive everything we do. By providing much-needed treatment options for neuro-immune disorders, BioShin will be at the forefront of the country’s healthcare revolution.
BioShin’s name comes from a Chinese phrase meaning “unique” and “at the forefront.” The name highlights the company's vision of building a new model of biopharmaceutical company.
BioShin Limited, is a privately-held biopharmaceutical company with offices in Shanghai and Beijing. As a start-up, we have launched in China with a full neuroinnovation portfolio of late-stage clinical assets for neuro-immune diseases, including rare diseases, that it in-licensed from the U.S, making us uniquely positioned to address significant unmet needs for patients in China and the Asia-Pacific region as a young company. Our strategy is to develop and commercialize these assets, as well as in-license assets from other companies to bring innovation to the region.
The neuroinnovation portfolio includes the US FDA-approved NURTEC™ ODT (rimegepant) for the acute treatment of migraine and a broad pipeline of late-stage product candidates across three distinct mechanistic platforms: CGRP receptor antagonism for the acute and preventive treatment of migraine and other CGRP-mediated disorders; glutamate modulation for obsessive-compulsive disorder and spinocerebellar ataxia; and myeloperoxidase inhibition for multiple system atrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Biohaven is a majority shareholder in BioShin.
