an oral formulation of oxycodone for the management of moderate-to-severe pain
when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended
period of time.We designed REMOXY to discourage common methods of tampering
and misuse.Pfizer, Inc. (NYSE:PFE) is our exclusive, worldwide commercial
partner for REMOXY, except as to Australia and New Zealand.
REMOXY Deal Economics
*To date, we have received total cash payments of $185 million in program
fees and milestone payments under our strategic alliance with Pfizer.
*We are eligible to receive from Pfizer a $15.0 million payment upon FDA
approval of REMOXY.
*After the commercial launch of REMOXY by Pfizer, we will receive a royalty
of 20% of net sales in the United States, except as to the first $1.0
billion in cumulative net sales, which royalty is set at 15%.Outside the
United States, the royalty rate is 10%.
*We will also receive from Pfizer a supplemental payment of 6.0% to 11.5%
of net sales, depending on the range of total dollar sales in each year,
covered by the strategic alliance. This supplemental payment is tied to
the full amount of our financial obligations to Durect Corporation, our
exclusive supplier of certain excipients in REMOXY.
*All development and commercialization expenses around REMOXY are
reimbursed or paid for by Pfizer.
*We retain commercial rights to REMOXY in Australia/New Zealand.We have
not yet announced a market entry strategy for these territories.
*As previously announced, in October 2013 Pfizer returned to us all rights
with respect to abuse-resistant formulations of three opioid drugs:
hydrocodone, hydromorphone and oxymorphone.We are free to develop and
commercialize these assets on our own or with a licensee of our choice,
and may do so without notice or approval from Pfizer.We have not yet
announced a market entry strategy for these drug assets.
