YES, WE DID
Reduce the risk of infection in leukemia patients.
LEUKINE®, approved by the US FDA in 1991, is a recombinant granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) that stimulates the immune system and has been used in leukemia patients to reduce the risk of infection.
In 2018, Partner Therapeutics, Inc. (PTx) acquired the global rights to develop, manufacture, and commercialize Leukine ® (sargramostim) from Sanofi. As a small company, Ptx did not have the internal resources to handle international requests for the drug and didn’t know how they could successfully support patients outside the US, in full regulatory compliance, even though the product was not registered in other geographies.
YES, WE DID
Provide free cancer treatment to patients around the world
The Max Foundation is a global non-profit organization focused on increasing the access to treatment, care and support for people living with cancer around the world. In 2017 the Foundation sought to put in place The Max Access Solutions program, a patient-centric care model for delivering free cancer treatment to those in need. The Foundation wanted to be able to offer its patients targeted treatment using a portfolio of oncology medicines from multiple pharmaceutical companies. They sought a partner to handle the distribution, quality assurance and regulatory activities to safely and securely store, handle and deliver the medicines to their patients. After evaluating options for a partner to manage the distribution, Tanner was selected.Read More

Assuring continuity during a global pandemic
A leading clinical-stage biotechnology company required packs of a comparator to conduct a Phase III trial for their leading asset. They required the stock in a single lot, and because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, wanted stock with a long shelf life and additional assurances regarding the supply chain to minimize lead times and the chance of unexpected manufacturer disruptions.Read More
