LEO Pharma has revealed plans to establish five long-term, strategic pharma partnering, research collaborations from now until the end of 2013 in Australia, France, Germany and the US. .

The research will supplement LEO Pharma's internal R&D activities.

The ambitious initiative aims to deliver new treatment options to dermatology patients - faster than ever before. The first in the series of pharma partnering collaborations to be announced is with Charite, one of Europe's oldest and largest university hospitals.

Each collaboration will integrate discovery research and exploratory clinical trials to an exceptionally high degree. The unique approach will enable LEO Pharma to explore more dermatological treatment solutions at record speed - reducing the time it takes to deliver new therapeutic options.

"This marks the beginning of an exciting journey for LEO Pharma and the patients we serve. By joining forces with world-leading experts, we hope to break important, new ground in dermatology - faster than we've ever done before," says Kim Kjoeller, Senior Vice President, Global Development."We're entering unchartered territory. Not only will we identify and test treatment solutions that no one has explored before; we will also explore new therapeutic areas for LEO Pharma. By working at the forefront of drug discovery and development, LEO Pharma can go that extra mile to meet patient needs. We are excited about the possibilities ahead."

The scope of the scientific collaboration strategy covers skin conditions in which LEO Pharma is already active, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and actinic keratosis, as well as new therapeutic areas for LEO Pharma.
