Evotec Announces Legal Steps Against Andromeda Biotech, Ltd

On 08 September 2014, Hyperion Therapeutics Inc. announced that it will discontinue the product development of DiaPep277(R) for newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetes, because Hyperion affirmed that it uncovered evidence that certain employees of Andromeda in collusion with a third-party biostatistics firm in Israel engaged in serious misconduct with regard to the use of generated data in order to manipulate the analyses to obtain a favourable result of the Phase III trial. In 2007, DeveloGen AG sold all rights to the drug candidate DiaPep277(R) to Andromeda, a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary of Clal Biotechnology Industries Ltd. Under the terms of this asset purchase agreement, DeveloGen transferred all rights in DiaPep277(R) to Andromeda in return for single-digit royalty rates and certain milestones in the single-digit rate upon commercialization of DiaPep277.
