Servier Canada Enters into Agreement with Daiichi Sankyo Co., Limited for Factor Xa Inhibitor Edoxaban

Servier Canada announced the signing of a strategic agreement with Daiichi Sankyo Co., Limited. Under this agreement, Servier will commercialize the oral, once-daily anti-coagulant Edoxaban in Canada, if approved by the Canadian health authority, while Daiichi Sankyo will receive an upfront payment, regulatory and sales milestones payments as well as royalties on net product sales. Edoxaban is a novel anti-coagulant treatment that specifically inhibits factor Xa of the coagulation pathway, highly involved in blood clotting. Edoxaban is currently under review by Health Canada for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolic events in patients with non valvular atrial fibrillation, as well as for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE), including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, and the prevention of recurrent VTE. This current filing is based on a worldwide clinical development program that includes two large phase III pivotal trials, Hokusai-VTE and ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48. Estimations claim that non valvular atrial fibrillation affects about 350,000 Canadians, a number that is expected to increase as the population ages1, and that VTE affects up to 45,000 Canadians per year. Edoxaban has been approved in the U.S. as SAVAYSA® and in the EU, Switzerland, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong as LIXIANA®. This contract is in line with Servier's leading role in efficient treatments for cardiovascular diseases, an area where the Group has always shown a strong expertise.
