Collaboration agreement for oncology drug candidates targeting apoptosis regulation pathways

Posted on 13 May 2014

Tags: , ,

Servier have signed a strategic global collaboration agreement with Novartis to develop and commercialize a series of novel drugs candidates issued from the Servier research programs partnered with Vernalis in oncology which are targeting the apoptosis regulation pathways.

The collaboration covers the worldwide co-development of BCL-2 selective inhibitor candidates that are now entering into clinical development.

Proteins of the BCL-2 family are crucial regulators of apoptosis.

Deregulations of this protein family play a major role in the aberrant survival of tumor cells.

Servier will remain responsible for research activities and will share responsibilities with Novartis to conduct a clinical development program aimed at moving swiftly to a first indication for the benefit of patients.

Commercialization rights to products arising from the collaboration will be allocated between the parties on a geographic basis.
