Galapagos Achieves Milestone in Osteoporosis Collaboration with Lilly

Galapagos NV has announced that it has reached a milestone in its osteoporosis collaboration with Eli Lilly and Company, triggering a payment of €2.5 million from Lilly.
In December 2007, Lilly and Galapagos initiated an alliance to develop new medicines for the treatment of osteoporosis. The agreement provides Lilly access to 12 of Galapagos' novel target based programs in osteoporosis, with Galapagos responsible for the development of drug candidates through to Phase IIa clinical Proof of Concept.
The milestone announced is the result of one of these programs reaching the next phase of medicinal chemistry optimization. To date, Galapagos has received a total of €3.9 million in milestone payments from Lilly under the alliance.
