Science and Therapeutic Area
Focusing on innovation and patient accessibility, we have established a diversified and complementary R&D pipeline. Most products are independently developed through our own platform, and we have a number of potential novel antitumor targets drugs. Our products respond to a vast array of diseases, including cancer, autoimmune, metabolic, neurological, and infectious diseases.
As we continue to enrich our pipeline and explore combination treatments, our fields of innovation R&D has expanded from monoclonal antibodies to small molecule drugs, polypeptide drugs, antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), bispecific antibody or multispecific antibody drugs, nucleotide drugs and etc. We will continue to further explore the next generation of innovative therapies for cancer and autoimmune diseases.

Toripalimab is an anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody developed for its ability to block PD-1 interactions with its ligands, PD-L1 and PD-L2, and for enhanced receptor internalization (endocytosis function). Blocking PD-1 interactions with PD-L1 and PD-L2 promotes the immune system’s ability to attack and kill tumor cells.
More than thirty company-sponsored toripalimab clinical studies covering more than fifteen indications have been conducted globally by Junshi Biosciences, including in China, the United States, Southeast Asia, and European countries. Ongoing or completed pivotal clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of toripalimab cover a broad range of tumor types including cancers of the lung, nasopharynx, esophagus, stomach, bladder, breast, liver, kidney and skin.
In China, toripalimab was the first domestic anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody approved for marketing (approved in China as TUOYI®). Currently, there are six approved indications for toripalimab in China:
The first three indications have been included in the National Reimbursement Drug List (“NRDL”) (2022 Edition). Toripalimab is the only anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody included in the NRDL for melanoma.
In the United States, the FDA is reviewing the Biologics License Application (“BLA”) resubmission for toripalimab in combination with gemcitabine and cisplatin as first-line treatment for patients with advanced recurrent or metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (“NPC”) and for toripalimab monotherapy for the second-line or later treatment of recurrent or metastatic NPC after platinum-containing chemotherapy. The FDA has granted Breakthrough Therapy designations for toripalimab in combination with chemotherapy for the first-line treatment of recurrent or metastatic NPC as well as for toripalimab monotherapy in the second or third-line treatment of recurrent or metastatic NPC. Additionally, the FDA has granted Fast Track designation for toripalimab for the treatment of mucosal melanoma and Orphan Drug designations for the treatment of esophageal cancer, NPC, mucosal melanoma, soft tissue sarcoma, and small cell lung cancer (“SCLC”).
In Europe, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) accepted the marketing authorization application (MAA) in December 2022 and February 2023 for: 1) toripalimab in combination with cisplatin and gemcitabine for the first-line treatment of patients with locally recurrent or metastatic NPC and 2) toripalimab in combination with paclitaxel and cisplatin for the first-line treatment of patients with unresectable locally advanced/recurrent or metastatic ESCC.
PD-1 is a T cell surface receptor; it is an immune checkpoint molecule in the co-inhibitory signal pathway of the T cell. As shown in the following figure, the binding of the PD-1 ligands, PD-L1 and PD-L2, to the PD-1 receptor found on T cells inhibits T cell proliferation and cytokine production. Upregulation of PD-1 ligands occurs in some tumors and signaling through this pathway can contribute to the inhibition of T-cell activation and immune surveillance of tumor cells. Anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies can block the PD-1/PD-L1 pathway and thereby restore the immune function of T cells.
