Transition Therapeutics Inc Announces Exercise Of TT-401 Rights By Eli Lilly And Co

Monday, 17 Jun 2013 06:01am EDT 

Transition Therapeutics Inc announced that Eli Lilly and Company (Lilly) has exercised its option to assume all development and commercialization rights to type 2 diabetes drug candidate TT-401. In conjunction with this assumption of rights, Transition will receive a USD7 million milestone payment. Lilly and Transition have amended their agreement to address future development of TT-401 and associated financial arrangements. Lilly will assume all costs and perform all future development and commercialization activities of TT-401. Transition will contribute payment of USD14 million to Lilly in three separate installments during the Phase 2 clinical study. If TT-401 is successfully commercialized, Transition will be eligible to receive approximately USD240 million in additional milestone payments. Transition will also be eligible to receive a double-digit royalty on sales of TT-401 products and a low single digit royalty on related compounds. TT-401 is a dual agonist of the GLP-1 (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1) and glucagon receptors which is being developed to treat type 2 diabetes and accompanying obesity. In March 2010, Transition entered into a licensing and collaboration agreement with Eli Lilly and Company, where Transition acquired the rights to a series of pre-clinical compounds from Lilly, including TT-401 for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
