Osaka University Key Developments

Eli Lilly and Osaka University Enter into Research Collaboration on Obesity

Eli Lilly (US) and Osaka University (Japan) have agreed to set up a research collaboration focusing on the prevention of obesity prevention. Under the agreement, Eli Lilly's China-based research and development (R&D) centre will collaborate with researchers at Osaka University on obesity prevention measures, focusing in particular on the process of obesity progression in relation to diabetes pathophysiology. The collaboration is expected to focus on potential modes of treatment for the prevention of obesity, based on Osaka University's initial research on progression of the disease. In addition, Eli Lilly's China-based R&D centre is expected to potentially have access to data based on local Asian patient populations, which would give the company an advantage in applying for marketing approval in China for any treatment candidates that may result from the collaboration.

Rohto Pharmaceutical and Osaka University Enter into Stem-Cell Research Partnership

Rohto Pharmaceutical and Osaka University's Graduate School of Medicine have entered into a research partnership focusing on accelerating the commercialisation of mesenchymal stem-cell-based regenerative treatments. Under the agreement, the two parties will use Rohto's stem cells to carry out research into serious heart failure, as well as evaluate pharmacological study models and conduct preclinical research. Depending on the outcome of the research, the partnership aims to conduct an investigator-initiated clinical trial, with the aim of receiving conditional approval for a regenerative treatment. Rohto also plans to consider future partnerships with Osaka University to explore other clinical applications of its mesenchymal stem cells.
