New York City is the latest city to open a new chemical bank for cancer patients, but it’s not just for the good stuff: The new facility will also make the stuff that cures cancer.
It was built in the city’s financial district by the pharmaceutical company Cigna.
The bank is a joint venture between the Manhattan-based pharmaceutical company Covid-19 Therapeutics, the New York State Department of Health, the City University of New York and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The money will go to developing and testing drugs and other treatments.
It was built with $1.2 billion in private capital.

The $1 million fund, known as a “cancer bank,” will be managed by Covid, the company that makes the drug Cipro, for Covid and a handful of other partners, including AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Eli Lilly.
Covid says the fund is designed to offer cancer patients a way to save up to $200,000 a year, compared with other insurance.
“Covid’s leadership in cancer treatment and discovery is unparalleled, and we are committed to helping patients make the most of their life-saving resources,” said Robert T. Shulman, the chief executive of Covid.
“Cancer patients and their families deserve to be able to have a reliable source of funding to help them pay for their care.”
The bank will have $2.5 billion in assets and be funded by the Covid Global Fund, a $3.9 billion global fund established in 2015 by Covids CEO Martin Shulmann.

The bank, which will be called Covid Cancer Bank, will be in the Financial District, a commercial center where many major retailers, restaurants and other businesses have set up shop.
It will also have an office at the Astra Zeneca headquarters in the Bronx, said Lisa P. Brown, director of Covida’s New York regional operations.
“The bank’s goal is to provide patients with access to a reliable and affordable source of financial support for treatment, as well as access to innovative and personalized care that can improve their quality of life,” Brown said.
“We want to be part of the solution to a very real crisis for cancer treatment,” said Paul S. Shanks, president of Covido Health, which owns Covid Therapeutic, Covid’s largest drug and medical device company.
Covids CEO Shulmans’ company has made some strides in treating Cipo.
His Covid Genesys vaccine has been shown to prevent some forms of Ciprolithiasis, a type of skin cancer, and prevent other cancers in laboratory animals.
The company has also made strides in drug discovery.
Cipresis, a drug for Cipropillomavirus-positive blood, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in November for use in treating multiple sclerosis and other forms of MS.
The company is also working on a new cancer treatment, called Ciprenol, that could be given to patients who don’t have other options for treatment.
“It’s exciting to see the success of Cepresis in other cancer-associated diseases,” said John J. Sholes, president and chief executive officer of Covids biotechnology division.
“The Covid team has taken the next step and is developing a novel, new form of a cancer-specific compound that could treat a broad range of cancers.
It is exciting to work with Covida on this exciting breakthrough.”
The Covids bank will offer a range of therapies, including those that fight other forms, such as cancer cells.
They also offer a wide range of treatments that can help people live longer and healthier lives.

The Covida bank is the first new entity in New York since Covid was acquired by the U.S. pharmaceutical company Astra in 2012.
The deal, which Covid calls a “game-changer” for New York, was announced Tuesday by Astra CEO James Shulmen.
The Astra partnership was announced during a speech to the annual shareholder meeting of the New England Association of Realtors.
The money will be used to develop drugs and treatments that help people with cancer survive, Brown said at the announcement.
It includes money for research and development, she said.
