Chroma Therapeutics Ltd. Key Developments

CTI Acquires Exclusive Worldwide License to Tosedostat Through Concurrent Transactions with Vernalis R&D Limited and Chroma Therapeutics Ltd

CTI BioPharma Corp. announced that it has acquired worldwide rights to tosedostat through concurrent transactions with Vernalis R&D Limited and Chroma Therapeutics Ltd. Tosedostat is a first-in-class selective inhibitor of aminopeptidases, which are required by tumor cells to provide amino acids necessary for growth and tumor cell survival. Tosedostat is currently being evaluated in multiple Phase 2 clinical trials for the treatment of patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) or high-risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), which are intended to inform the design for a Phase 3 registration study to support potential regulatory approval. Over the next year, CTI and its advisors intend to develop a registration path for tosedostat in the US and Europe. Chroma and CTI also terminated their prior license agreement relating to tosedostat, thereby eliminating potential future developmental and sales milestone payments by CTI of up $209 million thereunder. Concurrently, CTI entered into a license agreement with Vernalis for the exclusive worldwide right to use certain patents and other intellectual property rights to develop, market and commercialize tosedostat and certain other analogues. Under the Vernalis license agreement, CTI agreed to make tiered royalty payments of no more than a high single-digit percentage, on a country-by-country basis, for the longer of ten years following commercial launch or the expiration of relevant patents.
