University of Manchester Key Developments

Basilea Pharma Inks License Agreement for Novel panRAF Kinase Inhibitors

Basilea Pharma announced that it has entered into a license agreement for novel panRAF kinase inhibitors with a consortium of organizations including The Institute of Cancer Research, London, Cancer Research Technology, the Wellcome Trust and The University of Manchester. The agreement grants Basilea exclusive global rights to develop, manufacture and commercialize novel panRAF kinase inhibitors which originate from research at The Institute of Cancer Research by scientists funded by Cancer Research UK and the Wellcome Trust. RAF kinases play an important role in tumor cell proliferation. The oral, small molecule panRAF inhibitors target BRAF and other growth pathways relied upon by resistant tumor cells. The consortium will lead clinical phase 1 development for the lead compound. Basilea will assume full operational responsibility thereafter. The consortium receives an upfront payment and is eligible to potential milestone payments on achievement of pre-specified clinical, regulatory and commercial milestones, as well as tiered royalties on future net sales.
