The key elements of the strategy are to:1. Establish partnerships to co-develop and commercialize select product candidates in large specialty markets2. Independently develop and commercialize select novel product candidates that target high value orphan specialty markets3. Establish partnerships to express proteins from other companies wanting to leverage the unique glycosylation advantages and other characteristics of the SEP™.
