Dimension Therapeutics announced it has entered into a pharma deal with Bayer HealthCare for the development and commercialization of a novel gene therapy for the treatment of hemophilia A.

Dimension will receive an upfront payment of $20 million and will be eligible for potential development and commercialization milestone payments of up to $232 million.

Dimension will be responsible for all pre-clinical development activities and the Phase 1/2a clinical trial, with funding from Bayer.

Depending on the results of the Phase 1/2a clinical trial, Bayer will conduct the confirmatory Phase 3 trial, make all regulatory submissions, and will have worldwide rights to commercialize the potential future product for the treatment of hemophilia A.

Dimension is eligible to receive tiered royalties based on product sales.

Hemophilia is a rare bleeding disorder in which patients produce little or no clotting factor, a protein needed for normal blood clotting, which can cause life threatening bleeding.
