Evotec Achieves Clinical Development Milestone from Bayer
News Aug 04, 2016
This milestone was achieved under the strategic alliance between Evotec and Bayer entered in October 2012. The goal of the collaboration is to develop three clinical candidates within the five-year alliance. Both parties contribute innovative drug targets and high-quality technology infrastructures and share the responsibility for early research and pre-clinical characterisation of potential clinical candidates in the disease area of endometriosis.
Bayer will be responsible for subsequent clinical development and commercialisation while Evotec is eligible for clinical and sales milestones as well as royalties on net sales depending on the successful development and approval of a potential drug candidate.
Dr Mario Polywka, Chief Operating Officer of Evotec, commented: “We are very pleased to report this exciting progress in our endometriosis collaboration with Bayer. The progression of this programme into clinical development is a significant achievement for the alliance. We look forward to continued success within the alliance as we strive to deliver new therapeutics for the treatment of this disease with significant unmet medical need.”
