Bavarian Nordic and Bristol-Myers Squibb announced an exclusive option to license and commercialize PROSTVAC, Bavarian Nordic’s investigational Phase 3 prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-targeting cancer immunotherapy in development for the treatment of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

Bavarian Nordic will receive an upfront payment of $60 million.

Bristol-Myers Squibb can exercise the option in its sole discretion within a designated time after data is available from the ongoing Phase 3 trial.

Bavarian Nordic would be entitled to a payment of $80 million upon exercise of the option plus additional incremental payments starting at $50 million, but with a potential to exceed $230 million should the median overall survival benefit of PROSTVAC exceed the efficacy seen in Phase 2 results.

Furthermore, Bavarian Nordic could receive regulatory milestone payments of $110 million, up to $495 million in sales milestones as well as tiered double-digit royalties on future sales of PROSTVAC.

The parties have also agreed to enter into a supply contract, under which Bavarian Nordic will undertake the future commercial manufacturing of PROSTVAC.
