Recipharm and LIDDS Sign Contract
News Dec 17, 2015
Recipharm and LIDDS have signed an exclusive collaboration agreement regarding scale-up of the production process and commercial manufacture of Liproca® Depot, LIDDS patented targeted treatment for prostate cancer.
The agreement will be an important component for the upcoming Phase IIb study which is planned to start in 2016. In connection with the agreement, Recipharm invests SEK 5 million in a private placement, thus becoming the third largest shareholder of LIDDS.
“LIDDS’ technology platform is highly interesting as it potentially can be used for other, already approved therapies which may lead to shorter development time for new products. We are looking forward to collaborating with LIDDS through contributing our technical expertise within production, and thus delivering a more gentle treatment for prostate cancer patients in the future”, says Carl-Johan Spak, EVP Development & Technology at Recipharm.
“We are very pleased that the agreement with Recipharm has been signed, as it is an important part of the preparations for the next clinical study. Recipharm is a well-reputed company with high quality, cost-effective processes for manufacturing. In addition, Recipharm has extensive experience collaborating with different types of organizations across the world. This agreement will strengthen the attraction for out-licensing of Liproca® Depot”, says Monica Wallter CEO of LIDDS.
